Creative Copy Challenge #111Posted: January 20, 2011
Today we have Sara Schmidt, a freelance writer, activist, artist and homeschooling mom, choosing the words for our writing prompt challenge. Her lucky number is 11, and she was born on 11-11, so it’s cool that she’s choosing for challenge 111.
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.)
- Lactose intolerance
- Kiss the Rain
- Pusillanimous – characterized by a lack of courage or determination
- Larkspur – plants of the genus Delphinium, with spikes of blue, pink, or white irregular spurred flowers
- Castrate – to cause pain to any male reader reading this.
- Poplolly – an affectionate term, little darling
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.)
