Every Sunday a Prompt will be posted and you will have 1 Week to write 100 words inspired by the Prompt. Prompts can range from a few words to a picture image, and will unique each week. The challenge is to write 100 words every week and get 10 EASY points!
At the end of each week, we will run a poll for all participating entries and the winner will get additional Points!
Weekly Challenge Rules:
No critiquing. Please refrain from giving feedback, as these challenges are to inspire creativity.
Positive Enthusiasm is welcome! But save it for when Voting has started.
CAN NOT vote for your own entry, and doing so will disqualify your submission.
Remind me, does the entry have to be fiction-like, or can it be an anecdote from personal experience, memoir-like? And does it have to be a complete "story" in that 100 words? I so cannot remember. Cuz I wanna try this, but I don't want to screw it up. And the words themselves have to be included, right?

I've also forgotten one of the rules. Does the story have to be 100 words exactly or can it be less? And if less, is there a minimum? So delighted to see this challenge again. I always loved trying to come up with a complete tale within the word limit.
Aaaaaach! My brain is seizing up on this. Whyyyyy? I read the first entry, and it was so good, I friggin' froze! Sheesh, you'd think I'd been writing for all of two days, not two decades. Gimme a break, brain.
*sob again* I thought I had my entry, and then I didn't. Ugh. It's beautiful, all 200 words of it. LOL, I got this word count confused with the 200 Words word count, yep, I so did. So, it's back to the drawing board for me. At this point, don't count on me having one done in time. Maybe next time I'll have the proper word count in mind.

RAVENEYE: Dang it, I didn't get my snowfall entry written in time. Ugh, what an exhausting weekend. Either my niece's costume project seriously wore me out, or I was fighting off a germ. Maybe both?

Caulder Melhaire: Dagnabit, but I forgot to update the dang thing! Two days in a row I set a reminder and both days got distracted by recruiters
Dec 5, 2023 14:51:47 GMT -6
Caulder Melhaire: Welp. Lucky y'all, we're just gonna extend snowfall by one more rest of the week
