Weekend Writing Prompt #63 – Crumble

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Word Prompt



The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!

    How are you? Enjoying the weather?

    Thanks for setting the challenge this week. Here’s my late entry – 88 crumbling words. Not quite a true story, more an exaggeration of truth 🙂

    ~ Crumble ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
    Grandma once baked fresh apple crumble:
    Intending to serve it to a family of five, but,
    Returning to the table she took a stumble, and,
    Her crumble took a swift nose dive.
    Said fumble of crumble due to a stumble,
    Launched her dish high through the air,
    All became jumble as hot flying crumble
    Landed still steaming in granddad’s hair!
    “Quick or he’ll scold!” grandma said:
    Whilst he howled louder as crumble spread
    When then mother grabbed a bottle of red, and
    Poured it all over granddad’s head!

    Congrats on your poems being published. Enjoy the new week ahead. Take care.

    Namaste 🙂
