Weekend Writing Prompt #67 – Haphazard

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!

  1. Hey Sammi, Namaste 🙂

    The weekend’s here it’s Saturday,
    No work this day but chance to play,
    Hoping all is well in every way,
    Here’s my scribble for today.

    ~ Haphazard ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
    Haphazard life rife with strife, but yet,
    By way of hap or fine fortune,
    Hazards haven’t happened at all.

    Have a great week.

    Namaste 🙂
