Weekend Writing Prompt #223 – Pre-loved

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



wk 223 pre-loved

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. Pre-Loved Weekend Writing Prompt #223 (71 Words)

    The precept purposefully folds the prenuptial marriage agreement,
    pretending not perusing the previous parchments and contracts,
    pardoning all involved prior to this perfectly planned union,
    each professing permanent love.

    Performing the posthumous divorce ceremony of paradisiacal partnership,
    citing the pre-loved prospect of retaining proprietary property and goods.
    Pastor verifies the possessorship of material gains prior to the permitted joining.
    Professing life long love and commitment papal vows are pontificated proudly.
