Weekend Writing Prompt #96 – Seashore

I promise ya’all, when I have a new house bought and signed for, I shall let go of this obsession… Or will go on and on about my new digs.  So, maybe I cannot make any promises, after all!  Thank you, Sammi, for giving me reasons to work a little harder!

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



Trying not to feel woe is me

Mother, sisters, their families

On a cruise, taking in the sun

While I’m at home, not having much fun

I may feel a little bit sore

Not playing with them by the seashore

But! I might have missed the sale of my house

Now that would be something about which to grouse

    • Dear Rochelle,

      I figure I’ll make that into a margarita shortly – how ’bout that?
      Sorry I missed out on being with Mom and sisters and bros-in-law… next time!

      Shalom and Lotsa love with lotsa hugs!

  2. Q,

    If I may add . . . since you had the constraint of 59 words.

    Once settled into the new locale,
    You’ll have some loose change and travel you shall.
    To dine and wine and dance with glee,
    And settle down in Tuscany!

    I’ll never be up to these challenges, not like you . . Mistress of Mayhem! Another winnah . . replete with chicken dinnah.

    • B,

      For a supposed “not up the challenge like me” those 28 words are perfection.

      You may have to reconsider your self-denial.

      MoM – is that my new moniker?

      Gracias. Glad you enjoyed 😉

      • I don’t know about perfection. I think you’re being a tad bit schweet. But I’ll take it. 🙂

        Seriously, you are the Challenge Queen. You take a limited number of words and turn it into a novel. You might want to consider running for political office with skills like that.

        Never mind. They don’t deserve ya . . .

        It can be. You’ve quite a few of ’em . . .

        De . . . Nader! Loved it. 🙂

        • To me, yes, perfection because you went and added my dreams to the poem.. In a most enchanting way so take it.

          Aww. Schtopp! Oh hell no. I don’t have the thick skin necessary to be in politics. They’d eat me alive and spit me out.

          I do, don’t I?

          Glad you did. Really, really.
