This post is a response to the weekly writing challenge from Trifecta. Not only is this a challenge, it’s a competition. One that comes with the rewards of triumph, increased feelings of self satisfaction and having your wondrous words featured on Trifecta. Join in and be judged, you know you have the words to kick some literary bootay.
This week’s word: survive
Clammy, clasping, gripping, grasping. At straws or at shreds of things long gone. Hope stuffed down deep inside a knapsack. Head down, eyes closed, hands outstretched. This is what it is to survive.
