You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words are:
The Shimmering Globe
Written by Tessa Dean August 2021
I walked across my parents front yard as the moon shimmered brightly on the globe that set atop a stand. The night was dark except for the glow of the moon directly on the globe. I put my hands out to rub it across the globe and the smoothness that was usually there was missing. I cut my hand on something sharp. The moonlight was too dim to see what happened, but I felt a sharp pain.
I hurried inside to check out my hand and was surprised to find a large cut across my palm that was bleeding profusely. I headed to the bathroom to clean the cut and bandage it before getting a flashlight and heading out to the globe to see what had cut my hand. I was astonished to find the globe was almost upside down and the base of it was shattered causing me to cut my hand. I took it into the house to examine it, but I couldn’t find a reason for the globe to still be intact when it had been partially shattered. Why didn’t the whole thing just disintegrate into hundreds of little pieces. And more to the point, what had caused it to shatter? I set it on the table to show my parents in the morning. I know my mom loved that globe and it would be hard to replace.
