Don’t Mind Me While I Trifecta

So someone just told me about the Trifecta Writing Challenge. And I do love a challenge, even when said challenge is ending in a matter of hours. The task was to write exactly 33 words inspired by the following quote:

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” ― Paulo Coelho, Alchemist

And here we have my attempt at keeping to 33 words. XD

She lay back in the grass, counting the stars and trying to imagine her life as something better. In her dreams, she would be like those nameless, numberless stars shining in the darkness.

 

And in conclusion: 33 words is HARD. But I did it! Yay me.

    I really like this. I’ve always known since I was little that I’d like to be “happily unknown” than someone (happy or not) famous. Shining in the darkness makes it even dreamier. Nicely done, and welcome to Trifecta!
