Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #482

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.

I am beginning to invite others to be the author of a week’s list of words, that means you too! All you have to do is email me at TheHandMaiden_Kathleen@hotmail.com

    The CONUNDRUM of my imminent reincarnation has me PREOCCUPIED with the thought of my own REBIRTH.
    I know my STRENGTH and RESILIENCE will persevere. I too know my STAMINA will carry me down the right path this time, and forsure to my FORTHRIGHT destiny.
    Yet still, I pondered the worthiness of my own existence.
    Therefore, I announce HEREONTO you that in this next life I will taste victory . I will feast triumphantly on spickets of slain HAM. And my hillsides will glow white with spoils from my fat hard LAMB.

    There’s a book in the Library of Caverns called huu ni mfano wa ukweli. According to legend, it contains methods for solving any conundrum. Ironically, after John the Scribe passed away, nobody else could translate the Swahili. Thankfully, John took copious notes and wrote his own series of books, based on the ukweli. If only the factions would have taken the time to read his works…

    The Forest Dwellers are too preoccupied with wresting control of the commune from the pompous, but powerful Ham Lords. The Science of the Lamb faction are busy exploiting the only domesticated beast remaining on the Post-Apocalyptic planet. And the poor Orphans spend all their time stealing, just to survive.

    John the Scribe wrote about the rebirth of Democracy. He praised the resilience of the doctrines; the strength of the population, from which Democracy derived its power; the forthright manner in which it is exercised. He lamented the fact that its only weakness was the stamina of the people. Since they were the engine, if they faltered, Democracy had no choice by to sputter to a halt.

    During such a lull, anarchists rushed in, launched nuclear and chemical bombs and hereunto set their hands a new declaration of dependence.

    The dust lies thick on the huu ni mfano wa ukweli. Deep in the Caverns, it inexorably joins the other great tomes of humankind in the mists of time.

    It was a CONUNDRUM that had PREOCCUPIED him since his ceremony of REBIRTH, here at the commune. He prayed for the STRENGTH and the RESILIENCE to meet the challenge honourably. He so loved life here at the commune, under the direction of the wise fathers. He adored being a man of the sun, in his linen tunic, expected to rule the women, to give them direction and to one day perhaps join the wisemen of the council. He had the STAMINA to meet the challenge. He was FORTHRIGHT and steady. “How did Moses survive 40 years in the desert?” After long contemplation and fasting and abstaining from the plentiful sex on the commune, he solved the riddle. HEREUNTO is my answer. As a LAMB unto slaughter, Moses survived 40 years in the desert in the exodus from the land of HAM because, because, because the sand which there nourished him.
