All Hallows

This weekend's quick Trifextra challenge is to write the next thirty-three words of the story that begins with words from The Scorpio Races. Author Maggie Stiefvater writes:

 "It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die."


Logic dictates that it be someone who was also born on this day of the dead. Harold was not. Harold’s wife Marge was. Happenstance finds Harold and Marge with an axe to grind.


See them all, write your own at:

  1. Axes to grind are never a good thing;) And neither sometimes are birthdays. But one thing is for sure-these 33 words are intriguing and clever and full of Kymm goodness!!

  3. I'll bet that nobody ever consulted Marge about this! Great setup--this could be the beginning of so many different paths.
