Wordy Wednesday!


This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is;

Peripeteia


- A sudden turn of events
- An unexpected reversal
- An abrupt change of circumstances

This word would have originated from Greek around the years 1585 - 1595.

'Dan sat in silence in the small farmhouse kitchen, stirring a lukewarm cup of tea and mulling back over the events from the past few days. He still could not take it all in, the peripeteia had left his mind swirling and confused, unable to focus, unable to decide what he should do next.' 

Challenge;


Comment a short piece of prose, flash fiction, or even just a sentence, using this word. It would be great to see what you come up with!
