Robert Frost and Trifextra

This weekend’s Trifextra challenge is a little different. I’ll just quote it for you.

Robert Frost one said, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”  We want you to do the same.  Sum up anything you want, but do it in three words.  Your response should mirror Frost’s quote by beginning, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about–.”  And the last four words are yours to choose.


In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about careers. I must write.



In other news, Trifecta is going to start offering critiques. I’m a guest editor to offer critiques, along with Lisa and Joules and another guest editor, Shevaun Boatright.  I really want to see the program succeed. If you have a piece that you are struggling to tweak, then please, consider submitting it. Rules can be found here:

Yes, I am looking at you.

  1. Nice, Jessie! Those three words can probably be said about your career as well as your heart and soul. Congrats on being a guest editor for Trifecta Critiques! You’d be great at it.

  2. I identify with this because, so far, I can’t find a “legitimate” career that speaks to me. I haven’t even found an employer who will take a chance on my (they think) meager skills in another career that’s even close to being a good fit. Instead of giving up on life, I write. It’s one of the last two things I have, and both of them are hard to become successful at. Except for the physical expenditure, a lot of the time when I write I feel like I’m trying to farm in the Depression’s dustbowl.

    This one was for many of us, Jessie.

    • It’s funny – I felt guilty putting this one up because it seemed so obvious. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have fallen into a community of others who live like this.
