Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #585

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. Albeit
  2. Banalabound
  3. Spector
  4. Spine-chilling
  5. Pile
  6. Teeming
  7. Compilation of tables
  8. Devilish
  9. Intake
  10. Plague

    We ditched the intake forms about 700 patients ago. The spine-chilling spectre of death hovered over the cough-wracked, shivering bodies. I worked like a devilish undertaker, albeit a less efficient one: triage was not my forte, and, as I stepped around each teeming pile of exudated blood and phlegm, I simply placed a black X on every third forehead.

    To think, just twenty-four hours ago, I was sweating the details srrounding the compilation of tables for my new clinical trials.
