Three Words #28

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: Paper, Ice, and Sun(from last week)

Ice and frost rimmed the panes of the window. Ashley scrapped away as much of the obstruction as possible and succeeded in letting a little sunlight through.

Ashley looked through the window at the sun as its yellow orb lifted over the snow covered world. Then, wrapping her shawl closer around her shoulders, she turned back to the desk.

She pulled a pen and slip of paper from their storage place and laid them on the desk. Sitting, Ashley took the pen in her hand and started the letter that would seal her fate.


  1. Well now I'm just tempted to put the silliest words down I can think of, like scallywag, boggle, and hiccup. :))

  2. Well you would have to make it hard for me -to wouldn't you :)
