trifextra : week seventy four – henry james


Trifextra Week Seventy-Four “s prompt is to play around with the following quote by Henry James…


Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
–Henry James

We want you to follow the same general structure of the above quote.  Feel free to change the subject–tell us what’s important about coffee or houseplants or whatever you’d like.  Or else change up the modifier–instead of telling us what’s important, tell us what’s sexy or overrated or pernicious.  Your last three lines should closely echo James’s, giving us the same answer three times.

For instance, a post might look like this:

Three things about Trifecta Writing Challenge are amazing.  The first is the community.  The second is the community.  And the third is the community.


Here’s mine 🙂


There are three amazing beings in my world. The first is one of my children. The second is one of my children. And the third is one of my children.
