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.
Thank you, Sammi! So impossible to resist, I’ve done this in the airport!
I do not know why this post won’t allow comments! I can’t seem to fix the issue on the mobile version. If I figure it out… Fixed…
We give a name to

Will be called
When I think back
I don’t usually post anything particular on this day. There are no vets in my family on either side. It almost feels weird that is it so. Not a one? That does not mean, however, that I do not purchase my poppy every year, that I do not respect what all our vets have done; that I do not feel pain that so many find themselves pushed aside, suffering from PTSD and other malaises.
I do, however, have friends currently in the military or who have retired from service so for them as well, I share this beautiful song by Trevor Guthrie. Proceeds to this song go towards raising funds for Wounded Warriors of Canada
Another Thursday, another CCC prompt!
I admit to being a very bad employee. This is the third day in a row that I find myself writing a post on none other than my phone!
I have set up my bar, I have polished every surface as well as my glasses; I have even polished cutlery to busy myself. I have chatted with a member who sat at my bar to eat his lunch.
So, now, bored to tears, I found myself looking at Crispina’s lovely photo and suddenly hearing my father’s voice saying “Red right returning” and a haiku was born. So NOT the way I was gonna go but hey…why not?
Red right returning
When coming in from the sea
Must be respected
Good Wednesday, my peeps. Let me begin by apologising for not getting to all the fictioneers’ stories last week. I shall still try to catch up, if I can.
Our leader Rochelle has chosen J.Hardy Carroll’s interesting pic this week. Care to see what you can come up with? Click on the frog below and add your 100-words worth!
Whatcha doin’ lyin’ on the floor like that?
Contemplating your potential death should that contraption fall on ya?
Hah! No, but yes.
What? Yes or no?
No, not worried about the contraption but thinking of death in general.
Why on earth would you?
Is there something you need to tell me?
Oh no! I’m not dying. Not yet, anyway.
Jeez. Then why would you?
I went to see this cool show called ‘A Night of Grief and Mystery’.
Optimistic title. I can see the attraction. Not.
It was fascinating.
More about the journey we will all take.
My go-to buddy, Julie and I went to see this show last night. It was so fascinating, combining Stephen Jenkinson’s story-telling with Gregory Hoskins Band. Could not help but make one think and want to discuss it afterwards!
And honestly, we did NOT know we were gonna be the dynamic purple duo!
