Three Words #17

One of my favorite writing games is something I call three words. I post three words and encourage you to write a flash fiction piece containing those three words. If you would like to challenge me – post three words for me and next week I will post a piece of flash fiction using your words. Enjoy!

Flash Fiction

Using the three words: Egret, Grace and Revelry (from WilyBCool) Confession: I had to look up egret :)
White wings spread, feathers quiver in the wind. The egret, a bright contrast to the dark water of the lake, took flight. Its voice echoed through the night.

Mylana watched the bird, its feathers glistening in the moonlight.

"Such a graceful beast." Said a deep voice from behind her. Mylana turned to find Dorrin standing behind her.

"You find my hiding place." She smiled at him, then turned back to the lake.

"Why would you want to hide?" He came to stand next to her. "I thought all this revelry was for you." He swept his arm to encompass the party that was going on behind her.

Mylana shook her head. "No. I am fallen from grace. That is all for my sister, Anala."

Dorrin was quiet for a long time. "Do you have regrets?"

She closed her eyes and shook her head. "I could never regret a decision that came from my heart."


  1. I love your new blog design! Great story. I've done words in a while so let's see... How about Carnival, lunch, and robots :)

  2. Nice piece with some tough words!
    Love the new design btw :-)

  3. Nice flash fiction! Very painterly imagery. BTW, thanks for following me.

  4. Glad you are liking the new look. Struggled for a long time to make my own template and got frustrated. Planning on posting what I learned some time soon.
