A knock on the door.
Ernest peeked gingerly out of the window.
Oh, great!
Another mob had come to badger him, wanting his help. That was the third this week.
How long could he hide for?
He cursed himself for losing his precious amulet.
Without it, he was nothing but a coward.

WRITESPIRATION #125 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 30 – Pie

Sacha’s #Writespiration prompt this week is

Pie

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

I hate maths.

Why on earth would I need to know that the circumference of a circle divided by the diameter is always 3.1414 – also known as π (or pi)?

Let’s be honest… I’d much rather be learning about Pie not Pi… Lemon meringue… Apple… Or a nice shortcrust pastry chicken pie….

For Sacha Black’s #Writespiration Challenge!

Tell me the story of why this room is empty!

Everything.
They took everything.
Not one fixture or fitting left to adorn the walls of this now bare shell of a room.
“If the bank are chucking us out, we aren’t leaving a thing, not even the carpet!” Rhys exclaimed.
They left, but not before unearthing a floorboard…that would make them think!

WRITESPIRATION #115 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 19 – The Right Place To Write

Sacha’s prompt this week for #Writespiration.

This week, I want to get to know you. Pretend money is no object, describe your perfect office or writing location, or make it up, make it random or describe the craziest place you’ve worked.

I wrote this 52-word piece first… Maybe the craziest place I have written…

23bcaa4d-748a-48d4-a2be-76318a7697f4

Sitting here, right now is probably the loudest writing spot I use!
For the last two years, I manage to squeeze in an hour’s writing time at my children’s Dhol Lesson!
Imagine… Between four and twelve large drums beating, often not in time, providing me with inspiration… and often a headache too!

Then the drums provided me with inspiration to write a 52-word poem too! (Hope this is allowed Sacha!)

As a writer I have no home
I have no writerly fixed abode
In the dining room or on my bed
I scribe the stories in my head
My phone, tablet, laptop too
Occasionally, while on the loo!
But to have a space that’s truly mine
Now that would simply be divine!

WRITESPIRATION #112 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 16 – Backwards -sdrawkcaB!

Oh Sacha, you evil task master!!!! What have you got us doing this week??

writespiration-2017

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.
Backwards.
BUT, in addition to that, I want you to write your story backwards…!

Seriously??!!

Ok, so I wasn’t sure, word for word backwards? Sentences backwards? Reflected backwards???

Here’s what I came up with, in several forms! And all 52 words!!!!!

Backwards sentences…

The discussion about changing her surname was always going to happen, but there was no way she was going from Portia Peters to bloody Portia Carr!!!!!
The marriage proposal came soon after.
It had been a few years since they started dating.
Tim stared back sullenly.
“Jeez! You’re so backwards!” Portia huffed.

Word for word backwards…

And in case that made no sense whatsoever… The original!

“Jeez! You’re so backwards!” Portia huffed.
Tim stared back sullenly.
It had been a few years since they started dating.
The marriage proposal came soon after.
The discussion about changing her surname was always going to happen, but there was no way she was going from Portia Peters to bloody Portia Carr!!!!!

OMG Sasha, that was tough!!!
