~~~Contest~~Triolet with Zeugma~~~


Blog Posted:8/9/2014 10:01:00 AM

Whoa!!! I have received two entries one was mostly what I wanted and the other no way near or even close..It was not a Triolet nor had Zeugma lines..If you entered it, you might want to rethink it then rewrite it ..

Great that I have already gotten two entries with this challenge or at least I was hoping would be a challenge to many of us..It was to me..Not so easy to write a Zeugma for I had to stretch my brain or get the thinking out a rut..

There are plenty of examples of Zeugma lines on the internet if you just type in Zeugma Examples in your search engine..

Have a great Saturday and have fun with the contest..There is plenty of time to write your Triolet with at least one of the repeat lines being a Zeugma..

I am really excited to do your contest. It is right up my alley, Sara. And I just need to research the zeugma aspect to get a good idea. Thanks for hosting this kind of contest. I have not been too inspired lately. Hope you have a good run with it.
