Challenge Accepted #34

Since I found that asking people to link their entry to the challenge on their blog actually reduced the number of people participating in it, I though of doing a u-ey and posting their entries on my blog. I don’t know if some were lazy or thought that… well let’s leave it at that. I am thankful for all of you who took the time and effort to link this challenge and those of you who replied to it in the comments section.

I am posting the entries for the TPS#32 that was posted on the 10th of March. I plan to give 10 days for you guys to take up the challenge and then link the replies the Saturday after next.

Last week’s phrase was –

“Click, click, click………”

The replies (in no particular order)

  1. Elusive Trope – “by the end of the meeting he had driven me mad with his ball-point pen.”

2. Jane – “The sound of her heels was cut by a high-pitched scream as she fell down the lift-shaft—nobody had thought to tell her the lift was off-limits for maintenance.”

3. Rivrvlogr – “…as my camera freezes this moment in time.”

4. Kathryne – “The death beetle mercilessly ticking down my life, second by second.”

5. Victo – “… In short order, the lock was picked and she was inside.”

6. Jen – “…BOOM! I sat up in bad, scared & disheveled, after dreaming of a car explosion”.

7. William Lee – .” Snap, snap, snap……..Dooowop, doowop……dooowop,doowop.”

8. Aadhira – “The beauty of the moment was lost,
to the naked eye,
as it was viewing through the view-finder,
to freeze them forever in pictures!”

Thank you all for joining in the weekly game and I hope you continue enjoying it! 🙂






About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. I see that I am constantly going beyond a phrase. I am not to blame, as the prompt is too good, just for one phrase.. 😛 😉 In fact, I deserve to be appreciated for not making a bigger post 😛 (Did you notice that I can’t even give a short comment? ) So, the conclusion is thanks for bearing with my longer posts and thank you so much for those very interesting phrases.. 🙂 My entry for this week will be posted tomo.. 🙂

  4. I have noticed that I have been receiving fewer posts to read on my reader. Maybe folks are not writing as much right now. ? ; )
