Weekend Writing Prompt #192 – Tenacious

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 (see note below).  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.
  • A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc).  If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap.  Remember, this is supposed to be fun! 🙂

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!

  18. Visiting again this week. Thank you C.e Ayr for the invitation and Sammi for the prompt.

    The Plan

    A fairy-tale princess?
    I’m supposed to wait around to be rescued from terrible danger by a passing frog.
    Who’ll turn into a handsome prince and we’ll live happily ever after.
    No way.
    My dreams involve a hunky woodsman I spotted in the forest.
    I managed to ‘stumble’ and fall into his arms.
    Which I do every day now – without stumbling.
    He doesn’t know I’m the princess.
    And I have a plan…
