Weekend Writing Prompt #76 – Unlock

OK, OK, so I’m cheating.  It’s no longer the weekend but now is when I can so, now is when I do.

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




Words brought them together

His, swirling and provocative, coloured in metaphors

Hers, straightforward but honest, not given to fluff

Mutual admiration expands for the other’s style


This exchange of words, innocent and light

At times a comedic or snarky repartee

Becomes an exchange of ideas, a baring of souls

Trust given and received sans fear

Unlocking the possibilities

For so much more

  1. Hi D – I really liked the way “she” was not given to fluff – I find that sometimes it is the other way around and never to gender stereotype – to have the man’s words “coloured in metaphors” was just a fresh approach for moi.

    and nice words on words here (sorry I had to) and fav tres:

  2. Q,

    Well I have to confess something to you here. I completely relate to this post! Like, it’s mirror image scary-like!

    This is (what’s another word for brilliant?) . . . perfect! Strong, bold, fearless and passionate. Okay, that’s four other words for brilliant. And four ain’t really ’nuff either!

    Ya know? You have a real talent for this whole writing thing.

    To unlocking the locked up places.

  3. So many good words about your words, those before me leave me none to say without I shamelessly repeat them. So … just read the previous comments through again: that’s what I want to say. 🙂

  4. I will comment before I read the others so apologies for repetition – Dale, this is a lovely piece leading the reader through the unfolding stages of communication with a stranger who becomes something more important. Snarky – great word.
