Weekend Writing Prompt #91 – Helter-Skelter

I was in such a rush to publish, I forgot my preamble!!  Thank you, 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.

Word Prompt

Helter-Skelter

Challenge

There are those who like their days organised, scheduled down to the last minute, no surprises.

Others like to fly by the seat of their pants, helter-skelter style, loathing regiment of any sort.

While I have my structured moments, I’m also a carpe diem woman.  What does that mean?  After my appointments on Friday, I received a text from my friend, Linda:  “OK. You, me at Industria in an hour.”

I looked at the time of the text, saw I had a half-hour to change and join her.  It was unexpectedly crowded.  Why?  Unbeknownst to us, it was “Singles Night”.

What did that mean for us?  Dinner, conversation, and a show!!

  1. Dear Dale,

    I’m so not surprised that you nailed helter-skelter. I’m with you. Organization? I can hardly spell it, let alone get it together. Loved this and love the pictures. Well done, my friend.

    Shalom and hugs,

    Rochelle

    • Dear Rochelle,

      I just realised I was in such a rush to publish, I had forgotten my preamble! But that has been fixed 😉

      Thank you. Nailed, eh? I am not what one would called organised but I do manage 😉

      Dale

  2. Q,

    Two single gals doing it up! You go ladies! Woot . . WOOT!

    Nicely done challenge, but you already know you are the mistress of mayhem when it comes to doing these things, dontcha? This particular piece of writing did not leave a . . . wait for it . . . a single word out of place. Sorry (less) but . . I had to!

    To the challenges, all of ’em. And to toasting them up with friends!

    • B,

      Sometimes this whole single chick thing is a hoot and a half! Always fun when you have a partner in crime 😉

      Thank you, kind sir. I wasn’t sure about this one, to tell the truth. The mixing a prompt with a share, if’n ya know what I mean – and why I had so much trouble getting this to sound half-assed decent. Sorry(less) uh huh…

      To sharing good times with friends!

  3. I’m totally into spontaneity! Unfortunately, it has to be my spontaneous. 😀
    I can’t help thinking about the Manson Murders with the term Helter-Skelter, also, the Rolling Stones.
    I’m not going to look to see how many takes on that there are.
    I like your take, and I’m going with it!
    Well done, Dale!

    • Why am I not surprised? I can go either way.
      I know! I did everything on my power to avoid those and so did most of the participants! There was lots of murder, though.
      Glad you liked mine. 🙂
