100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #28

Please read first!

Many of you know about the 100 Word Challenge that is run from 100wc.net. It is the original 100 word project and is for children under 16. We desperately need some more folks to comment of these brilliant pieces of work. I would be really grateful if you could ad a note and a link on your blogs to encourage your readers to get involved. Many thanks! 

Many thanks to those of you who did enter last week’s ‘Critique’ prompt. I know it was challenging but it’s there in the title of this weekly journey into the life of a writer. A special thank you must go to Snellopy over in Hanoi who did a critique of every entry from Week#26. Do go and read his ‘Full House’. I’m hoping it will give you some ideas for the next time this sort of prompt is posed!!

Now, after all the grumbling i’m going to let you really have fun! It is my 60th birthday on 26th January. It is the one ‘Big – O’ birthday that I’ve had a problem with. That is probably to do with all the adverts I’ve had for stair lifts and walking aids!

Anyway, I thought I’d put reaching this milestone to good use. your prompt for this week is

…you bought her what…

I haven’t put in any punctuation because I don’t want to influence any of you. Normal rules apply – only 100 words, suitable for PG certificate and in by Monday 30th January.

Now don’t you agree I spoil you!

  4. Hi Julia. I looked around and couldn’t find where the instructions said to use the words. Is that a standing rule? I couldn’t find it on the page explaining the challenge either. Am I proving my novice standing? Does “prompt” imply direct inclusion? Thanks for the first timers grace and I’ll be sure to comply next time. I think this is quite fun, by the way.

    • Apologies Ryan! We’ve been doing it for a while so I forgot to put in the ‘you have 104 words all together 100 + the four in the prompt’. You’ll know next time! ;)

  8. Hi Julia.

    Enjoying this prompt so much I’ve posted a second story. Hope this doesn’t infringe any rules.

    Happy birthday for tomorrow. As somebody who hit the 60 mark last year I can tell you it’s great fun. I’ve even got myself a free bus pass! Haven’t used it yet, but hoping that when I do the driver will tell me I don’t look old enough to have one. We can but dream!

  14. It is a real pain when people do not put links back to this site. It takes so long to post replies and then you cannot do so many . . . . .

  16. Does that mean you’re limited to 100 words or less? (104 with the prompt?) Can the prompt be included as part of the copy? Can it be a poem or is it prose only? I have a poetry submission if that’s allowed.
