Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #172Posted: August 29, 2011
Note: Today’s words are tough. If you’re doing a series and can’t work them in, skip your series and do a regular submission today.
Larry Brooks of Storyfix choose today’sÂ words. Show him how to crush a challenge!
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 youâ€™ve missed previous writing prompts, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.)
- Matriculation – admission to a group (especially a college or university)
- Exacerbation – The act of making a bad situation worse; intensifying
- Personification – A figure of speech in which inanimate objects or abstractions are endowed with human qualities
- Elation – joyfulness or exaltation of spirit
NOTE: Donâ€™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.)
