Weekend Writing Prompt #124 – Barter – by Sammi Cox


Weekend Writing Prompt #124 – Barter – by Sammi Cox

Sammi Cox’s Rules:

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem/prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem/prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

*continuation from last weekend and a couple of months worth

 (Last Weekend I wrote) 

“Linda, I am being delicate here, but you just aren’t receiving the message,” Ron said.

“Oh, I receive it, you don’t follow through on your promises.”

“Listen, when we were discussing what we wanted, I was expecting my wife to leave me, but as it is she is willing to give me another chance and I am going to take it, and that means you and I are finished.”

“Well, she just might change her mind when she hears that I am pregnant.”

“Ron,” Connie says, “Is this true?”

“I don’t know with her, but she will have to prove it for me to believe it.”

********This week!********

Here’s a barter for you. Not your baby? We’ll stay together.

***********11 words**************

Not sure if this is a great use for barter, but wanted to keep my story going and 11 words are not much.
