Weekend Writing Prompt #121 – Teapot

Just a quick note:  I’ve scheduled a week away from the computer – I have a lot of writing and editing planned for the next few months and I’ve decided it would be wise to rest my brain beforehand 😉  This means there might be a delay in approving pingbacks and comments, responding to emails, etc. Thanks for your patience 🙂

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!

  17. Pai Mu Than in the morning,
    Early Grey in the day,
    And a Roibos light at night.

    These, the teas of my teapot,
    Fill my days with joy
    As I pour each cup anew.

    Tea beside the yoga mat,
    A cup after lunch,
    A steamy drink for sleeping.

    (Word count: 48, Haiku)
