Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #200Posted: December 12, 2011
What an amazing day today is! We celebrate our 200th writing prompt challenge. When we started this site, we were not sure we’d make it more than a month, but we’ve had over 300 submitters , 21,000 comments, and two years of fun that keeps coming.
I wanted to celebrate this great day, by having Cathy Miller choose the words. Cathy is our Welcoming Queen. Each time a new person did a submission, she’d use the challenge words and create a welcome message. They’re so cool, I created a page to collect them. Check them out, as no better way exists to demonstrate how special this place is. Thank you Cathy, and thank you CCC Family. Don’t know what I’d do without you all.
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.)
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.)
