Toxic Lucidity: The End

Toxic Lucidity: The End
August 17, 2012 16 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Her words were a blessing, though many called them a curse. When she finished, she smiled softly, tapped her staff on the ground three times, and vanished in a swirl of midnight sky.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This weekend’s Trifextra challenge: Last month we asked you to give us a killer opening line in exactly 33 words.  This week we’re asking for an equally amazing closing line.  It can be the ending to the story you began in the previous challenge or a completely different ending altogether.  Just make sure it’s exactly 33 words.

This is the ending to the novel I enticed with for the opening lines prompt a month ago.

This novel is important to me. Please share your thoughts on the closing line in a comment.

Thanks for stopping in and reading!!

    WOW…..WOW! I love it. it’s a great ending and it’s open enough to have a 2nd book.

    I have missed being over here, I plan to spend a whole lot of time here tomorrow.

      thanks, lumdog. while this is the ending, there is still a lot of middle and end parts to write.

    I feel the need to buy myself a cane just so I can tap it three times. Love it!

    I love the picture you painted here. Stamping the staff, a happy twirl, and “poof” she’s gone.

    I love it when people vanish in a swirl of anything . . . especially a “midnight sky” Perfect! 😀

    (P.S. What a great blog tagline you thought up!)

    Nice job with the prompt. I, too, loved the tapping three times. I’m left wondering what her words were. Thanks for sharing this.
