Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #537

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. Insurrection
  2. Triumphantly
  3. Laurels
  4. Withered
  5. Entrenched
  6. Auster
  7. Irritable
  8. Usurpation
  9. Stalwart
  10. Evangelical

    The somnolent auster carried the fragrance of laurels into the First United Separated Baptist Church. It had one task: quell the incipient insurrection being fomented from the pulpit of the entrenched, evangelical egomaniac.

    The breeze triumphantly turned even the most stalwart supporters of usurpation into irritable, withered zombies who barely had enough consciousness to check their watches surrepitiously.

    The charismatic preacher vowed to get the air-conditioning fixed before next Sunday.

    • Mitch – Sorry for my absence. Family obligations as the primary caregiver of my 80-year-old dad whom just got a new left knee. But what a treat to have some time to come, read and… head to the dictionary because you have used a word I did not know. “somnolent”. Thank you Mitch! okay… now I will read on. :]

      And then a chuckle escaped my pipes. Thank you.

      I, for one, am glad you Write On,

        Kathleen, no need to apologize for having your priorities straight. I hope you dad adjusts well to the knee replacement. After the pain of therapy, he should find relief from whatever pain caused him to get one. My mother had an arthritic knee replaced and used a cane for a year, but afterward, she bopped up and down the steps like a woman half her age.

        I’m glad you enjoyed the ditty.
