Challenge me! (May 2015)

It's a while since I've done one of these, but I feel the need for something to write other than the WIP.

Maybe it's because it's holiday time here in the UK and I'm feeling frivolous? (Homemade blackberry wine will do that to a person, y'know)

Maybe it's because I face the prospect of a bit more painting in the dining room before the new carpet arrives on Thursday (with all the upheaval and room-clearing that entails) and I'm trying to have something nice for when that's all over?

Maybe it's just because I don't have much to share with you about what I've been doing - other than working on the WIP, entertaining family over the weekend and sewing up the rainbow cardi I've now finished... (pics will follow)

Anyway, here's how it works.

You, dear reader of the Scribbles, paste three items in the comments section below. Please make them reasonably clean - I reserve the right to delete any that are too rude. I will then turn over the combos to Family Squidge to pick just one combo...and I will write a piece of flash which includes those three items.

If you want to see what I've done with three things in the past, check out the following - A Sixpence, Shells and ChampagneArnie's Aerial Adventure and The Ride to Heaven Retirement Ranch -  all 'challenge me' fiction pieces.

You have until the 31st May to post your items, and I'll endeavour to post a short piece by June 14th.

Get posting!

  5. Hi,

    See what you can do with these. I'm having no luck shoehorning them into anything. I don't even know what they are.
