The pool

This is an excellent writing exercise. Thanks to Elusive Trope for alerting me to Hbhatnagar’s Two Phrase Story Challenge #29 

The sentence to finish: “His feet touched the icy floor…”

and my ending: “and he wondered how long it would take before the chilling liquid would freeze his lungs.”

Your turn!


I would like to present a challenge, a word challenge. Thanks to Elusive Trope for encouraging me to get off my lazy ass and actually try to get more readers involved in this weekly game. I would never have attempted it if you had not pushed me ET!

The premise is simple. I provide one phrase every Thursday, an incomplete string of words, and it is up to you to complete it in your own, inimitable way. However you like, taking it in any direction you want.

If you like the concept, please play along and post the complete challenge on your blog and leave a link in the comments section below.

I love the mental exercise, I hope you do too!

This week’s phrase –

“His feet touched the icy floor……..”

My attempt

“……….but his hands held something icier still.”

Your turn!
