100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #39

Fair writers plying your craft here with me

I bow to your imaginations shown

The words, ideas and creativity

Are ere too much for one sonnet alone

The stories that you regaled on this space

Were of battles glorious and victory bought

Of George the hero who did the dragon face

Whilst maidens did look on for  love so sought

The Bard who was the other fellow too

Was here in some respect of prose as well

The rhymes and rhythms of his pen we knew

Would seek us out way beyond  the school bell

My thanks I give to all who did take part

My admiration to all comes from the heart!

If you are new who and feel you have wondered into a very strange place please look at WEEK#38 where hopefully all will be explained!

After last week, I need the equivalent of a lie down in a dark room so hopefully you will not cringe at this very straight forward prompt.

….I’m exhausted. Shut the door behind you….

So, to remind you of the rules you have an additional 100 words to complete your piece making 107 in total. Please make sure it is suitable for a PG certificate and please visit the other entries as that is where we can get ideas as well as support and challenge each other.

If you need to be reminded of what this nonsense is all about please read ‘What Is 100WCGU?’ Leave a comment below if you are still unsure.

The link will close at midnight on 30th April

  1. What a fabulous piece of poetry from you Julia! Last week was certainly a challenge bit it was fun to see what everyone did with it. Happy to be back to a more straight forward prompt this week though!

  2. I love your sonnet, Julia! I wish I had been able to participate last week – and not yet sure of this week, though I’m intrigued by the prompt – will give it a try if I can. And now that I’ve read your sonnet, I really want to find time to go read a few of the others.

  6. A friend told me about this place last week, and although I loved the idea immediately – what a great way to practise writing economically – as there’s no way I can write a sonnet I waited until this week to submit my first 100WC…
