Weekend Writing Prompt #229 – Caboodle

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 229 caboodle

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!

    Snoodled Caboodle
    By Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris
    Response to word prompt #229
    CABOODLE in 78 words

    A caboodle is not like a noodle
    It can never be less
    But I sorely digress

    A caboodle can mean lots of oodles
    Not a wee little mess
    It’s a seriously gigantic abyss

    The best is a snoodled caboodle
    And a snoodled caboodle is not a mess
    It’s not under the legs of a desk

    If you find a snoodled caboodle
    Take care not to bite or even to eat
    It’s not really there and isn’t a treat

  17. Hi bit late but here is mine and I remembered the word count!!


    Come see this bundle set before your eyes
    Amongst this assemblage are memories I consider quite a prize
    Before you start thinking I have completely lost my mind
    One thing I have to say it’s been accumulated it over time
    Ok, it may not be everyone’s idea of a superior collection but
    Don’t consider it fit for immediate rejection
    l love everyone of them their imperfection to me calls, so
    Enjoy my precious assembly of one-eyed Barbie dolls!

    and on my website with pics 🙂 https://poetisatinta.wordpress.com/2021/10/03/weekend-writing-prompt-6/
