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:

  1. a sled or a carriage drawn by three horses side by side
  2. a folk dance
  3. 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!

Happy Friday!

  1. Corinne:
    thank you so much for plugging the Rule of Three Writing Challenge. I’m sure my other three co-hosts will be pleased you did this.

    We are really excited and can’t wait for October 5th to happen already. At 10:40pm on 9/16, there are 38 signed up (well, four of them are Damyanti, Lisa, JC and myself).

    I’ll be making a new trailer next week, so look for it.

    Again, thanks.
