This post was written in response to Sacha Black’s second weekly prompt for 2017. 

52 weeks in 52 words.


Sacha will post one prompt a week for 52 weeks, and the challenge is to write a story in just 52  words exactly. Sounds like a fabulous idea. The value of conciseness for a writer is invaluable, as Sacha herself reminds us: ‘The art of being concise is nothing if not a muscle flexing ‘write’ bicep curling device’.

This week’s prompt is to write about the badly timed trump!! Oh dear 😦

Here goes my take.


‘Heard about Liberty’s new husband?’

‘Tall, dark and handsome, knowing her.’

‘Overweight, blonde, ugly and rude.’

‘But she’s beautiful, generous and kind!’

‘Go figure.’

‘What’s his trump card?’

‘Perhaps she was lonely and depressed.’

‘So he popped up at the right time?’

‘Badly timed, you mean.’

‘Whoever introduced them?’

‘His Russian friends.’
