My Weekly Writing Challenge

Last week my daughter came up with the words you needed to use in my ten-word story writing challenge (‘discombobulated’, ‘unicorn’, ‘bacon’ and ‘fabulous’). She clearly did a great job as you’ve all been taking up the challenge with great gusto (scroll down to see all the entries). So I thought I’d ask her again. Here’s your challenge for this week:

Write a ten-word story, using the words ‘bamboozled’, ‘banoffee’, ‘Horatio’, ‘afro’ and ‘twerk’.  A special challenge goes out to Jason Moody to see if he can break his record of 16 entries last week!

Here are last week’s entries:

Geoff Le Pard leapt in straight away with an entry, which will get you thinking:

‘Discombobulated is an anagram of bacon and unicorn. That’s fabulous.’

Steve Walsky sent in a witty entry:

‘The chef’s fabulous whimsical Unicorn Bacon Sandwich discombobulated the diners.’

Keith Channing sent in two corkers:

1) I wrote a story with discombobulated, fabulous, bacon and unicorn.

2) A discombobulated unicorn tastes fabulous with bacon – so I’m told.

Now it’s over to Jason Moody and his 16 stories:

1) “A discombobulated, fabulous unicorn, with bacon? What’s funny about that?”

2) “Can I help you?”

“Discombobulated fabulous Unicorn with bacon please.”

3) A discombobulated, fabulous unicorn eating bacon. A strange day indeed.

4) “Garçon. Discombobulated fabulous unicorn with bacon. No onions, thanks.”

5) Kevin Bacon rode in on a discombobulated unicorn. That’s fabulous!

6) “Discombobulated? Fabulous sweetie. Bacon roll please,” cooed the young Unicorn.

7) The shop sign discombobulated Ted. ‘Bacon-like unicorn. Fabulous value!’

8) “Hello. I’m a discombobulated unicorn.”

“Fabulous. I’m bacon,” said Pig.

9) “No,” said Kevin Bacon. “No fabulous, discombobulated unicorns. Bad idea.”

10) “Unicorn? Bacon?”

“Apologies. My fabulous list has discombobulated you, miss.”

11) “Have you a copy of ‘Discombobulated Bacon Unicorn?”



12) He felt discombobulated. A unicorn made of bacon? Spectacularly fabulous.

13) The stall owner was discombobulated. “Bacon flavoured unicorn. Fabulous entree!”

“Fabulous. Bacon, eggs and unicorn.”
