Monday 33 Worder – ‘Last Rites’

Since the demise of Trifecta I am missing writing 33 word stories. I have decided I’m going to dedicate Mondays to writing one or more 33 worders. Let me know what you think. This one is 33 words of dialogue.

Last Rites

“Can he hear me doctor?”

“I’m afraid not Mrs. Smith.”

“So he doesn’t know I’m about to switch of his life support machine?”

“No, but don’t worry, he wont feel a thing.”




‘Satisfaction’ – A 33 Word Story

The prompt for this week’s Trifecta challenge was to write a 33 word story with the word ‘SATISFY’ in.


“What more do you want? I’ve lost everything. Isn’t that enough to satisfy you?”

“Poor Johnathan, I think you’re forgetting who I am? I’ll only be truly satisfied when I have your soul.”


‘Feminine Guile’ – A 33 Word Story

This week’s Trifecta challenge is for a 33 word story using the word ‘WORM’ with this definition – to obtain or extract by artful or insidious questioning or by pleading, asking, or persuading 


Feminine Guile

It took all my feminine guile to worm the truth out of him. He begged me not to tell but I had no choice. It’s my job. Break them open, pass them on.



‘Building Work’ – A 33 Word Story For Trifecta

An intriguing prompt for this week’s 33 word story for Trifecta. ‘This week we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words about love gone wrong.  But we’re asking that you not use any of the following words: love, sad, tears, wept, heart, pain’

Building Work

Bitch! We could have been so happy. Then she spoilt things, said she was leaving. Couldn’t let that happen. This way I keep her close forever, just feet away, under the new patio.


Every Storyteller Needs An Audience – Some 33 Word Stories

As a storyteller, I am always thinking how about how I might present some of my stories in different ways. Last week I decided to take some of the 33 word stories I’d written for Trifecta and put them on to a Haiku Deck presentation which I also shared on SlideShare. SlideShare picked it up and featured it on their home page and in 3 days it has had 2,057 views.

Every storyteller needs an audience. What’s yours?
