Thirty words …

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Syzygy and the limit just 30 words which is a bit of a challenge for flash fiction writers such as I!




‘Hello, Syzygy darlin’ slurred Bob.

‘You’ve been drinking’  said Suzie. 

‘Oh no I haven’t’.

‘Oh yes you have’.

‘Look, three moons all in a row!’

‘Oh yes, you definitely have!’




Syzygy : the straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies such as the sun, moon, and earth

    More of Keith’s squashing a challenging word, too much to drink or not. Well done.

        True! There’s the etymology. That’s when the sun and the moon and the stars align.. :p
