Weekend Writing Prompt #156 – Home

This weekend’s prompt is the last prompt of Year Three!

I can’t believe how long we have been doing these prompts, and how the little community around it has grown!  I wish both returning participants and new, a big, warm heartfelt welcome! Thank you all for your support, even when I have been a pretty terrible prompt hostess!  In the next few days I will be putting together all the prompts for Year Four, so if you have any thoughts on what you would like to see (such as, if you prefer the longer or shorter word limits), please let me know in a comment or via the Contact Me page.

I hope you enjoy this week’s prompt and challenge.

Stay well and keep safe,


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!
