42 Words #11

So this week on 42 Words Charles took up the gauntlet and chose our number but before we mosey down that road lets recap the world of SWORD AND SORCERY.

We have a great selection of tales for you to peruse, so please check them out.

Teresa from The Haunted Wordsmith

Dave Madden from MMA Storytime

Sadje from Keep It Alive

So Charles decided on number 11 and he teamed this decision with exclamation marks which has proven highly appropriate for 11 is none other than …


Fights where?  Fights about what?  Fights with whom?  On the decisions that need to be made and summed up in 42 words.

Ok, so while you ponder this weeks theme why not take the oppotunity to pick a number, there’s still plenty of choices to go around.  If there are no selections I will ask my boss and there’s no telling where that will end.

1 2 3 GONE GONE 6 7
8 9 10 GONE 12 13 14
15 16 17 GONE 19 20 21
GONE 23 24 25 26 27 28
29 30 31 32 GONE 34 35
36 37 38 39 40 41 42

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

The trial of knowing when it’s time to run

Eyes narrowed, lips pursed,
So determined to win this battle.
That they didn’t notice the door open,
And little Max scamper in.
He was a tenuous little fellow,
He grabbed that cake and scooted fast.
The fight was over before it begun.


PS Don’t forget to pingback.
