Weekend Writing Prompt #139 – Devour

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.  I always enjoy these challenges, so thank you, Sammi!

Word Prompt




They planned to meet at lunchtime which would give them a chance to dispel any butterflies they might feel.  They walked hand-in-hand, both trying to ignore the electricity that ran up their arms while they walked and searched.  They discovered a cool joint with a hippy vibe that served excellent beer and simple, yet fun food.

The decor was perfect to get them talking about this and that while they each surreptitiously stole glances. The chilled beer barely managed to cool their inner thoughts, though.

As soon as they exited, he pulled her to him and kissed her passionately. “I could devour you right here and now,” he growled.

  1. Q,

    This feels so real. Their thirst quenched in a most vicarious pose, their hunger sated temporarily . . but for the primal abandon whose thrust advances certainly. Both of these things, in torrents.

    You’ve painted a sexy piece of mystery dancing in sync with the mayhem of horizontal resolutions. The pace, a perfect rhythm whose melody branches off into divine stanzas while the lyrics get written with each wild new movement of two dreams, being remedied into one.

    Devour? Yes . . . God yes.

      • I don’t think so. It’s the first piece I have had a feeling about. It’s because you are so romantic, and I am too, and I would devour.
        I would also devour the secret message, if the CIA cornered me. 😀
        HEY, Project was a hilarious surprise.

        • Oh good (though I didn’t really think so… not really!) And yes, romantic and sensual all the way.
          He he he! Love it!
          And yes, I got that from the mile-long laugh (loved it!)

          • How sweet are you? Have no fear, I can’t seem to stop!
            Ugh. Paperwork… something I’ve been avoiding but will have no choice but to tackle.
            Don’t you just hate when reality comes and interferes with your creative time?

          • YES!!
            Is there a prompt for that?
            I can hardly wait to start the next Art Gown.
            That will happen after all this paperwork is fait complete!
            Anyway, I just turned Holly, PBH into a dragon. So many creative things to do, so many interferences.
            I want to read another Shehanne book, so why am I struggling with a Dostoyevsky book?
            Ok…. I’m drawing…now!

          • I wish!
            Good girl – doing the dreaded paperwork first.
            Oooh… Didja know I’m a dragon in the Chinese horoscope 😉 ?
            Dostoyevsky – I have to admit I’ve not read him… Russian authors are not easy as they are soooooo descriptive. I’ve read some Tolstoy and Nabokov… eesh.
            Enjoy your drawing!


  2. Well, that scene’s only ending one way! It was a long time ago but I remember that feeling, though it was frightening too – that sense of losing control, of being carried along by something. Passion can be as painful as it is wonderful.
    Lusciously written, Dale
