I wonder who’ll be hosting the after parties tonight …

We won the Trifextra Weekend Writing Challenge! (Click here for the full write-up.) Of course, submitting THREE entries (all posted on Friday, 3/9) probably helped our odds a little.  In the end, our third and final submission (remember The Audition, the one about Jack Nicholson?) was selected as this weekend’s winner.  We should all be very flattered as there were a great number of very talented people involved in this round.

I’m very excited … for all of us … and I think we should all start shopping immediately for our evening gowns.

Thanks, Trifecta. You rock!


My Trifecta for Trifecta – it’s the last one this weekend, I promise!

I had one more idea that I really couldn’t resist putting to paper (or screen … as it were) for this weekend’s Trifextra Challenge. This organization is all about threes anyway, so why not write a third (and final?) entry?  Let’s review the rules: The submission needs to be 33 words exactly and it should best demonstrate (of all entries) the proper use for an exclamation point

Trifextra Entry #3 – The Audition

Jack: You can’t handle the truth?

Director: Good.  That’s very good, Mr. Nicholson.  But do you think you could try it again?  Only this time … you’re furious.

And now, just for fun, let’s take a look at that memorable scene. That’s good stuff …
