My Weekly Writing Challenge

I think I’m going to re-name this ‘My Daughter’ s Weekly Writing Challenge’! Her five compulsory words for you to make into a ten-word story for next week are:

  • Spider-Man
  • Catastrophic
  • Shrimp
  • Malodorous
  • Callipygian

Happy writing!

Last weeks words were:

  • Maraca
  • Flabbergasted
  • Ventriloquist
  • Pensive
  • Obama

Here are the results:

Sacha Black kicks us off with this story to make you laugh out loud:

Obama’s not pensive, just a flabbergasted ventriloquist shaking a maraca.

Geoff Le Pard sent in two highly witty stories:

1) The ventriloquist flabbergasted a pensive Obama with her talking maraca.

2) Obama flabbergasted a pensive Senate with his maraca-eating ventriloquist act.

Melissa Barker Simpson‘s story will make you smile:

The flabbergasted ventriloquist waved a maraca at a pensive Obama!

Jane Basil sent in a wonderful variety:


“Why so pensive, Obama?”

“The ventroquist stole my maraca. Flabbergasted!”


Obama ducked, flabbergasted. The ventriloquist, pensive, retrieved the maraca.


Pensive, Obama the ventriloquist plays maraca.

Flabbergasted, his subjects stare.

There’s no pensive in there, but I was thrilled Peter Wells gave it a go:

Obama, the gifted ventriloquist, was flabbergasted by a crying maraca.

Keith Channing brings the challenge to a close in fine style:

For the pensive ventriloquist: Obama’s maraca will leave you flabbergasted!

  1. Great words, and extremely challenging! I can’t wait to see what people come up with. I gave it a shot:
    Spiderman: ‘What a catastrophic, malodorous mess.’
    Shrimp: Showing off, Callipygian?

    The saddest thing is, I have a whole scene playing out in my head! ;-D

  2. MJ Brodeck says:

    I admit, I had to look up the word callipygian. Looks like a fun challenge. MJ 🙂

  3. You daughter gets meaner every week! Here’s my effort:
    Spiderman’s callipygian form writhes.The malodorous shrimp churns within. Catastrophic!

  4. Sacha Black says:

    Hope this makes sense:

    Spider-man did a catastrophic malodorous shrimp fart from his callipygian.

  5. Sacha Black says:

    Spider-man did a catastrophic malodorous shrimp fart from callipygian buttocks.

    There that should actually make sense – didn’t realise callipygian was an adjective – your daughters vocab is HUGE!
