Closing Line

by on August 19, 2012

This weekend’s Trifecta challenge was to write a closing line in 33 words. I was thinking ahead to the story I plan to write for NaNoWriMo ’12, and, well….

“Ah-ha!” said Captain Happily Married in sudden realization like the exploding of a potato-chip bag squeezed too hard,  “that’s what the dolphin meant!”

“Yes, dear,” said Super Soccer Mom, who’d known all along.

  1. This looks like it could be a strong ending to a story about a weird relationship among the Captain, Soccer Mom and the dolphin!

    • Captain Happily Married and Super Soccer Mom do indeed have an unusual relationship; I’m not sure where the dolphin fits in. I’ll find out in November, I expect.

  2. I like the analogy of the exploding potato chip bag (I hate it when that happens). It could be a fun challenge to write the story backwards based on this ending 🙂

    • That would be interesting. I hadn’t really had much of a plot in mind, other than explaining how Captain Happily Married became the matrimonial-based superhero we all know and love. But I’m definitely putting a talking dolphin in there now. 🙂

    • I love this idea 😉

  3. What a crazy cast of characters! I love it! Do you plan on publishing your NaNo to your blog so we can follow along? If you have any great ideas on how we can incorporate NaNo into our writing prompts, please drop us a line at Oh, and come on back tomorrow for the new prompt!

    • I hadn’t thought about it, but I just might! my past NaNo’s I’ve waited a bit for editing, but it occurs to me that getting on the spot feedback might be useful too. If I get any ideas, I’ll be sure to send those along. 🙂
