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.”
Here’s a barter for you. Not your baby? We’ll stay together.
Not sure if this is a great use for barter, but wanted to keep my story going and 11 words are not much.
