Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #471

This is a writing prompt. Bet you can’t do it! Take the 10 random words below and crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story! And remember: after (if) you finish entering your submission into the comment field, 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.) NOTE: Our bolding plugin is gone, so you’ll have to put before and after each of your challenge words if you want them to stand out, but NOT REQUIRED THOUGH! Or, as cleverly done by a CCC-er you can CAPITALIZE the challenge words in your piece.

  1. Windbag

  4. Purpose
  5. Sore looser
  6. Inaugural
  7. Innumerable
  8. Hostile
  9. Spoil-sport

    Three-time badminton champion Percy O’Lear gets fragged in a hostile article in the inaugural issue of Spoil-sport Illustrated:

    O’Lear is an old windbag and a sore loser. His latest outburst, at the Las Vegas Pyrite Invitational, was an unprovoked verbal assault on the umpire after being given a warning about his innumerable lewd gestures.

    O’Lear claims that his sponsors want him to wear tight shorts and, therefore, he must be allowed to make an adjustment after every point.

    He further stated that the umpire recently got divorced and that was the reason for his picking on O’Lear. “He was doing it on purpose! No wonder his wife left!”

    The umpire had no comment.
