Word Prompt



wk 311 absolute

Weekend Writing Prompt #311: This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 80 words using the word “Absolute”.

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. Hi all! So… just sharing. I’ve been working on the last few challenges (aplomb, eradicate and absolute) I like the words and challenge, just haven’t made the time to complete my pieces, except for ‘absolute’. I finished it and shared on my pages and realized I didn’t share here. My piece is about mental health, May is mental health awareness month and although it’s late for the challenge, I wanted to share. #BeEncouraged
