Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #526

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. Pithy
  2. Give-and-take
  3. Backcountry
  4. Drunkard
  5. Bewigged
  6. Assailed
  7. Erudition
  8. godforsaken
  9. Unrivaled
  10. Birthright

    The pithy drunkard‘s sharp banter was unrivaled amongst the citizens of the godforsaken backcountry known as Ink Spot. He regularly assailed obnoxious visitors, especially those so-called dignitaries who peacocked about the campsites with airs of erudition wafting about their bewigged pates like thought bubbles.

    There wasn’t much give-and-take, either. As the outsiders looked down their noses, the little wino spat out his vitriol in an unrelenting, rapid-fire succession of insults, mockery and attacks on their birthright. They barely had time to snap back against the hot breath that scorched their nostrils and their pride.
