This week I have the honor of leading a small team of guest judges for the Trifecta Writing Challenge! This makes me happy on a number of levels. First of all, I get to work with some fantastic writers: Uneven Steven and Kate R. of Robbo Writes.
Steve has blown me away since the first time he posted on Trifecta. I wish I had half the gift for poetry that he does. Here are a couple of the first posts that grabbed my attention: Dinosaur and Absence. And here’s my latest favorite: Freak.
Kate has a talent for giving us a little slice-of-life-with-a-twist. To give you an idea of what I mean, check these out: Pie, Anyone?, Twins, The Perfect Couple. I mean, seriously – I never know how her posts are going to end.
But the main reason I wanted to participate as a guest judge was for the opportunity to give something back to the Trifecta editors and community. I discovered Trifecta in January of 2012, and from my very first entry found myself welcomed and encouraged at every turn. I’ve said it before: not writing is easy; writing is hard. Trifecta makes it easier, and I can’t be more grateful.
Here’s this week’s challenge. If you haven’t participated before, go ahead and give it a try. Anyone can write 33 words, no?
