Creative Copy Challenge #100Posted: December 13, 2010
Can you believe it! This is our 100th challenge. I’m so proud of this site and the people that made it what it is. Can’t thank you all enough for the joy this site brings to my crazy life.
And as you know, our own Cathy Miller has been welcoming new CCC folks with personalized welcome messages since I can remember. I didn’t ask her to do this, yet she creates wonderful welcomes to everyone who submits. Nothing more perfectly explains what the CCC is about better than these, and this is why I asked her to pick for this special occasion. Thank you Cathy for all you do here. Now, onto the show.
BET YOU CAN’T do this writing prompt. Take the 10 random words below and, in the comments, crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story tying all of them together! And remember: after (if) you finish, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed previous writing prompts, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.)
- Unmitigated – not diminished in intensity, severity; (intensifier) an unmitigated disaster
- Who knew
- Plethora – an excess; An excess of blood in the circulatory system or in one organ or area.
- Swagger – strut, brag, or boastful; to bully
NOTE: Don’t copy and paste from MS Word. Use a program like notepad that removes formatting or just type in the comment field itself. Also, finish your submission, THEN bold the words. Thanks. (And don’t forget to tweet this and share it with your friends.)
