Weekend Writing Prompt #72 – Shell

Could not resist this one.  Shout out to Sammi Cox for hosting this weekly challenge.

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.

Can crack it open

    • Thank you, Andrea! Much appreciated…. I actually originally wrote a first one which I realised would work much better with mask rather than shell. So I had to revamp it!

  1. Q,

    “I’ll take ‘Literary Limbo Dance’ for a thousand Alex”
    “This exclamatory word, most often used in sporting events, best describes what Dale does with a 12 word prompt,”
    “What is ‘Scoooorrrreeee!!!!'”


    So you were not content with a hundred and fifty words . . or even a hundred. Nah, you had to go and do it, didn’t ya?! Well . . you didn’t just do it, you DID it girl!
    A romantic capture of the heart, in twelve words . . . BRAVA!!!!

    Let’s see Frank top THAT! 😉
