Risk Versus Reward


The best way to take my mind off of a heartbreaking visit to the vet is to write something. So here you have it.

Trifecta says complete the following story in 33 words:

 ************************************************

'It wasn't the first time.'

Book obsessed and reenacting plotlines in real life. 

It’s only a game, isn’t it? 

Trickier, scarier and riskier. 

Exciting beyond expectations. 

Does she have it in her this time? 

Stopping would be wise…

    1. We have to make a decision really soon in all fairness to Ellie. We will not be in agreement (so far, the big guns, me and him, aren't agreeing) and it won't be unanimous so I don't know. Thanks for the thoughts.

    1. I get completely sucked in by characters and story lines.I NEVER want good books to end. So today I thought, what would happen if someone desired to live out a book, be a character and live, for a period of time just like that.

      My original thoughts were thrillers or spy type novels, then I thought about romance novels set in Italy or Europe somewhere. Of course, my mind then wandered to the "Fifty" side of things. Who knows?

    2. Well then...to be more specific and said below...I'm definitely envisioning a very romantic love story written by a young, never before published, up and coming writer who could write this story perfectly!

    1. I wonder which one too. So many read and stuck in the brain to pick just one. Would love to re-create many! Spy thriller? Awesome love story? I do know which one I would truly pick...

    1. Thanks loverofwords. I will come over and visit you.

      Initially, I was thinking sexy espionage. Now I'm definitely envisioning a very romantic love story written by a young, never before published, up and coming writer who could write this story perfectly!

      There goes my imagination again!

  8. Oh, but wise isn't always interesting...

    Hope that you make it through whatever's going on with the vet soon and in one piece.

    1. That thing "Wise"...I call it the fun stopper! It hardly leads to interesting, in my book. However, I couldn't live without it considering my impulsive nature. It has stopped my fun, with good reason, many, many times. I'm thankful for that! Usually.

    1. Thanks, Mags! I think it would be really cool to actually do. Or write a story from that angle.

  11. It would be fun...for a while. But the problem is that characters in books often get into bigger messes than we do in real life :)

    1. Of course they do. That's why it's fiction and we live in real life. Just thinking crazy stuff!

    1. Sometimes I feel like I could become the story. I can feel it that much. Wonder if many people do?
