Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #541

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. Proprietary
  2. Commonwealth
  3. Jollification
  4. Squadron
  5. Flogged
  6. Impediment
  7. Predestination
  8. Succore
  9. Perished
  10. Provoking

    The Commonwealth gave succor to the town’s survivors, and the squadron of drones attempted to deliver it on the President’s behalf. Bartholomew Barnes was not having it. He shot another metal bird out of the sky.

    “That’s the fourth one we’ve lost, sir.” Captain John Smythe feared provoking the General, but he’d rather be flogged by his superior than be the subject of jollification for his men.

    “Come, now, Captain. What seems to be the impediment? Can’t those panty-waists handle a joystick? If you lose one more Currawong, your boys are going to wish they had perished in the earthquake!”

    Captain Smythe was seething when he left the General’s office. That old bastard cared more about the Commonwealth’s proprietary aircraft than he did the young aviators and starving citizens. Why couldn’t he see that the disaster was simply a predestination of the civilianization of the military?
