Three Words #21

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!

Three Words

  • Silence
  • Hope
  • Danger

Flash Fiction

Using the three words: Branch, Olive, and Swing (from last week)

Julie plopped another black olive into her mouth. Chewing happily she danced back over to the swing and jumped onto it.

She stepped back until only her toes touched the ground. Then with a squeal of glee she lifted her feet and swung forward. The branch from which the swing hung groaned in protest.


  1. Ouch! Hope that branch doesn't break :-)

    I haven't made any suggestions for a while, how about heaven, record and sponge? :-)

  2. Short and sweet. :) Ooo, I like Sarah's words! :)
