Weekend Writing Prompt #167 – Nuance

Had been hoping to squeeze this into my weekend during work hours but that was not meant to be. Sometimes you just can’t create, even in the ebbs of the regular flow.

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.  Click on the box below to join in on Sammi’s challenge or read other takes on this wonderful word.


Simple beauty painting the sky

in subtle and nuanced palette

the softest of violets and blues

morphing into brighter pinks and oranges


of love’s journey, where

A chance encounter turns into a friendship



into love

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Thank you, my friend. I have to tell you, I’ve been putzing around with this one for two days! So, I am all the more pleased you thought it wonderful.

      Shalom and lotsa glowing love,

  1. That is a striking use of color, if I may say that when the prompt is nuance. Well done, Dale.
    And the photo… Reminds me that I need to get out for a sunrise walk this morning.
    And yes, sometimes playing potter with the clay of our thoughts gets welcome results such as this.

    • Well, coming from one who has suddenly become an amazing photographer himself, I know not of what you speak!
      I just keep trying, hoping I don’t suck 😉

  2. Q

    A beautiful post, Q. Serene and rhythmic in its brevity. Which is always the goal, I think. To make the words count for as much as you possibly can, and you did so with this challenge, no doubt about it.

    And yanno, it’s way, way easier on the eyes than Joe’s version of Nuance . . which he pronounces just a little bit differently . . as if New-Ants.
