It's time for the Trifextra -- a mini Trifecta challenge. 
 Click here for participants.

Here's how it works: Submit a writing in 33 words that compliments the prompt from Maggie Stiefvater. In this case, the first sentence in the paragraph.

Here's mine:
It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die. Sightless Malqui’s gnarled fingers ran the strings to feel quipu’s knots and became certain of the accounting. Yes, one death today. Apu Illapu the rain god demanded it, and so it would be.

  1. yes, very good and very suspenseful.

    Great 33!

  2. So glad human sacrifice is out of style in most of the world. Good take on prompt with a historical reality.

    1. Yes, thank goodness. My daughter is in Peru for the next 2 weeks. It's on my mind. Thanks for stopping Ann.

  3. Very nice use of your 33. The voice flows well with the prompt sentence, too. Well done!
