42 Words #10

Hi All,

This week was a great week, not only was my granddaughter born but we also had two numbers selected. Β Rhen chose 10, which is this weeks number and next week we’ll have Caramel’s selection of 21Β but first lets take a gander at how the two options from last week went and revisit MORBID and LOST individually and in tandam.

Dave from MMA Storytime

Rhen from Cobbled Contemplations

Sadje from Keep it Alive

Caramel from Learner at Love

Jaquint in Writer

Teresa from The Haunted Wordsmith

Well, Rhen has made a choice that I think is divine and now for the big reveal, this week’s topic is …


Its time for the goblins, elves, sorcerers and trolls to come out of the wood work everyone but remember there are limits … 42 of them in this case. Β I can only wonder what fantastical weavings you will create in the 42 words.

And remember even though 21 is picked for next week you are more than welcome to keep the numbers coming. Β It saves me asking my new granddaughter. πŸ™‚

8 9 GONE GONE 12 13 14
15 16 GONE GONE 19 20 21
GONE 23 24 25 26 27 GONE
29 30 31 32 GONE 34 35
36 GONE 38 39 40 41 42

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

When one man’s fantasy is another’s reality

She was near but as always she was elusive and as the mist parted he leant forward eagerly, despite his prior experiences.

Staring fixedly at the undisturbed water he watched as it turned opaque and she asked, β€œYou want fries with that?”


PS Don’t forget to pingback.

    1. Hi Astrid, I post the challenge on Sunday and its open until the following Sunday. The numbers are in a grid at the bottom of the post. Each number represents a theme, those marked DONE have been done. You are free to pick any that are left and that will be the chosen theme in the following weeks. 😊
