A recent challenge from WordPress is to write a post in which no three-letter words appear. That first sentence constituted a challenge in itself as there were at least three three letter words that I wanted to employ when I first started writing it. (I’m really having to think hard about my word choices here!)
Anyone noticed that many threes appear in fairy/traditional tales? Goldilocks plus Three Bears, Three Little Pigs, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Three Blind Mice to name several. Then within some stories groups of threes appear – three wishes is a popular theme, or three attempts at something.
I think three short paragraphs is appropriate for a post about threes, so this is a good point at which to stop – while I’m still winning!
