This week, I decided to compete in a Trifecta writing challenge for the first time. As usual, it’s V’s fault. For the challenge this week, we were given three words. They could be used in any order, but we were only allowed to add 33 words for a total of 36. Our words were rain, rebellion, and remember. Here’s my entry.

  3. the idea of blood falling like rain… truly disturbing.

  4. Oh I like it! The image is vivid. Nicely done!

  5. Now that is a disturbing image, and I love it. (:

  7. Well, that’s certainly something I’m happy to be blamed for. Neatly done.

  8. Welcome to Trifecta ,with this great entry:-)
