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.
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!

Hey Sammi, Namaste 🙂
Hoping all is well and your weekend away a joyful experience.
Here’s my entry for this week’s challenge.
~ Fusion ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
Two stood to stare at his silver machine,
Bright in sunlight she all but gleamed,
Though old her hold on gazing eyes,
Still teased and pleased and gratified.
He’d seen the ad and number-plate
One of two came to investigate,
Had popped her hood and tailgate,
To prod and poke and deliberate.
“Genuine mileage,” said one to the other,
“Wonderful times we’ve had together,”
“Did I mention she’s never been a bother?”
“Starts first time whatever the weather.”
“Hmm,” said one concluding inspection,
“There’s something you’ve failed to mention.”
“My critical eye can’t deny she is incomplete.”
“Her allure hides what lies beneath.”
“She’s a chop-shop piece merely illusion!”
“Three cars as one in welded confusion!”
“To try to sell her is absolute delusion!”
“I’ll not be buying your fabricated fusion!”
Enjoy your weekend.
