Weekend Writing Prompt #213 – Galaxy

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!

  16. Hi Sammi, Crispina shared the prompt with me. Here’s my writing, possibly it will become part of a chapter one day.

    Galaxy-92 words
    Astrid smoothed out the ship after the tight turn. She gazed at the Milky Way Galaxy stretched out before her, beautiful and immense. Let’s just avoid those black holes, shall we? She chuckled aloud, but took a stronger grip on the wheel. It wouldn’t do to get caught in the gravitational pull of any heavenly body. She had to make it back to Earth in one piece; and after the unexpected meteor shower, she was sure there was more than one sizable dent. I’ll catch hell from Riley, she thought.
