42 Words #13

This is it folks, we’ve hit the half way mark and I would like to thank everyone who is participating and reading and especially those who are offering up number selections like Jenna over at Raspberry Ripples who is so in tune with the world for her choice of 13 is remarkably appropriate but before we go to the grand reveal lets recap the world of ZOMBIES …

Caramel from Learner at Love

The time that word used to always come to mind was early on Sunday mornings when I was on the Northern line. People on the tube would be falling asleep or staring into space. I think they had done night shifts. They looked half dead.

Rugby43 from The Bag Lady

Dave at MMA Storytime

Rhen from Breathing Shallow Poetry

Charles at Potatoes, And The Promise of More Potatoes

Chelsea from A Wife, My Verse

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Zombies proved a highly successful catagory and I was amazed at the variety of mini stories that were produced but as they say, we have to move on and Jenna’s choice of 13 should give us all plenty of incentive to do that because we’re entering the dark realm of …


Now I ask you folks with Halloween just round the corner what theme could be more appropriate???  So let’s get dark, let’s get dirty, let’s get dutifully macabre and enter the realms of horror but remember there are limits, 42 words to be precise.

On the good news front, yet again we have a number for next week as Chelsea posted number 8 in the comments but let’s keep them coming, there are still some great themes in there, hey Dave.

15 16 GONE GONE 19 20 GONE
29 30 31 GONE GONE 34 35

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

The minefield of children’s entertainment.

Hosting a birthday party with forty four year olds was always a worry but it was going astoundingly well, Mary decided as she pulled open the front door, paused, then slammed it shut.

“It’s Donald Trump … he’s dressed as a clown.”


PS Don’t forget to pingback.

And the words,

“You worry me, Catherine. You seem to think you’re quite invincible.” ― Lorraine Heath, In Bed with The Devil

Ramya Vivek from My Musings

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales From The Mind Of Kristian

This is my take on the prompt:

The first step had been the hardest, for Stella’s words had been echoing in her mind.

“You worry me, Catherine. You seem to think you’re quite invincible.”

Stella had said it with weariness and Catherine frowned, she always took the risks and Stella just waited patiently to pick up the pieces and put them back together.

Catherine frowned; Stella had never understood that life was to be lived.

Tossing her head Catherine glared at the idiot walking along the beach in a white T-Shirt and then she began to flap her wings.

He was daring her to poop on him.
