Sorry, no challenge today

I have some nagging health issues that are dogging me so I’ll just see you all on Thursday.

Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #275

Mitchell Allen is choosing our words today. (I’m on vacation this week, so you guys take care of each other while I’m gone. And be good. Just kidding; go nuts!)

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.)

  1. Diocese – the district under the jurisdiction of a bishop
  2. Anthropologist
  3. Judge
  4. Fish
  5. Baker
  6. Chromosome
  7. Derby
  8. Handicapped
  9. Drum
  10. Parliament – An institution whose elected or appointed members meet to debate the major political issues of the day and usually to exercise legislative powers and sometimes judicial powers. (also: a collective noun for a flock of owls or rooks)

NOTE: Don’t copy and paste from MS Word. Use a program like notepad that removes formatting or just type in the comment field itself. Also, finish your submission, THEN bold the words. Thanks. (And don’t forget to tweet this and share it with your friends.)


Happy Memorial Day 2012

No challenge today CCC Family. Get some rest, enjoy family and I’ll see you on Thursday.

CCC Google+ Hangout

Hey all. I was just wondering if anybody would be interested in having a CCC Google+ Hangout. I’m thinking we could have one once per week, perhaps on the weekend. Let me know in the comments what you all think of this. I’ve done some hangouts, but I’m not sure how many people it can hold. Let me know what times would be good for you. I think it would be cool if we just hung out and talked CCC and writing and such.

Happy Labor Day – No Challenge Today

Have fun. Enjoy your families. Get your game face on for Thursday.

You all are the best!


Happy Memorial Day 2011

Hey all. I forgot today was Memorial Day so I’m going to push Writer’s Digest’s words from today to Thursday. That means you guys just enjoy your day today without a challenge ( but hopefully surrounded by those you love).
