Weekend Writing Prompt #87 – Ignite

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!

  5. Afternoon Sammi, Namaste 🙂

    Whilst hard at work, or at idle play, 17 words, for your challenge this day.

    ~ Ignite ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
    White Knight ignite your light,
    Smite blighting shade!
    Flaming bright, do what’s right,
    Burn the Devil’s brigade!

    Have a great weekend. Take care.

    Namaste 🙂

        Most kind, thank you. I’m part-way through a slightly longer poem, which undoubtedly influenced my approach here.

        Appreciate your comment. Have a great weekend.

        Brightest Blessings. Namaste 🙂



      • Namaste Sammi, how are you? 🙂

        An excellent turn-out for the challenge this week! The diversity and quality of individual responses is superb. It pleases me no end to read them: I’m sure many found enjoyment as well 🙂

        Thank you for reflection on my 17 words…I hadn’t considered it light-hearted, but perhaps that is because I broke from writing Pit-Stop, which is a little heavier, and enjoyed penning the poem for your Challenge.

        I’m just back from a long walk around the local area and have returned home with 5 long white, wooden golf-tees. Not quite sure why they interested me as they did, but i’ll give it some thought later…perhaps in their finding is a poem of some sort waiting to appear! 🙂

        Thank you for comment and Challenge in equal measure 🙂

        Namaste 🙂
