My Weekly Writing Challenge

This week’s challenge is short and sweet. I’m looking for a ten-word story, using four of the following words:

  • Serendipity
  • Illicit
  • Dollop
  • Hullabaloo
  • Shrubbery
  • Squelch
  • Priministerial
  • Gargantuan

I think they’ll be some interesting results!

Last week, I gave you a single word for your challenge: Fear.

Here are the results:

Keith Channing sent in a super story:

Jane Basil always produces something a little different:

Geoff Le Pard says he’s cheating a bit as his  dad recited this to him when he was a child. I’ll let him off as it’s so entertaining:

‘The Fear’

It was a dark and stormy night
The roads were dry and clean
And I was walking backwards to the place where I had been
Suddenly I saw a noise
Stood on my face and looked
There is was
It came again
I did the splits
Had 15 fits
And left myself wit

Bharul Chhatbar sent in two brilliant pieces:

Random behaviour.


A fear is not a fear until you fear
A fear is not a fear until you face
A fear is not a fear until you chase
A fear is not a fear until you overcome
So do not fear,and let the FEAR come near!

  6. Priministerial? Really? It’s not in any dictionary that I can find, but there’s no law against poetical licence. Here’s two from me:
    A gargantuan dollop of illicit sex in the shrubbery? Priministerial!
    The gargantuan dollop of illicit icecream toppled; squelch. Such hullabaloo!
