In honor of the upcoming Rule of Three Blogfest, I bring you Troika. This word comes to us alllll the way from Russia where it means, in general: three of a kind.
Specifically, it has a troika of meanings:
- a sled or a carriage drawn by three horses side by side
- a folk dance
- a trio
I actually knew someone who used this word in normal conversation whenever they had the opportunity to talk about three of anything… this was my face whenever that happened:
And now about that blogfest…
We have a simple set of rules, an incredibly vivid world, a schedule, and a prompt… and at the time of this writing, 34 writers signed up to take part. Will you be #35? There are prizes! And it is sure to be a ton of fun.
The first posts go up on Oct 5. I hope to have something interesting for you all!
