Before We Begin
I thought that I would just post a quick note at the start of this weekend’s prompt to mention that #105 is the first prompt of Year 3! Woohoo! To celebrate I’m currently rustling up a batch of light and fluffy scotch pancakes…yum 😉
When I started out posting these writing prompts I never imagined it would still be going strong after so long. And it is…new participants are joining in regularly – a BIG welcome to you, if I’ve not already said it 🙂 Each week I’m in awe of the amazing talent that’s to be found in this community. You Scribblers are inspired and inspiring. Thank you for sticking with me!
At the end of Year 1, I decided to mix up the format to keep things fresh and new, but I’ve not really had time to do that for Year 3, and besides, from the comments I’ve been receiving and the response posts I’ve been reading, many participants seem to like it the way things are at the moment. So for the next year there will be no changes to the WWP. Of course, if you have something to say about this, either for or against it, I always welcome feedback and encourage you to share your thoughts, so please feel free to contact me, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave me a comment. I have however, in honour of a new year of prompts, slightly altered the design of the graphic for the challenge. I hope you like it.
Now we can get on to more serious business…the reason why you’re visiting my blog today…
Weekend Writing Prompt #105
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!
