It’s that time of the week again – yes, it’s nearly the weekend and it’s also time for my new writing challenge. Your three options are:
Option one: Write a limerick with the word elephant in it somewhere
Option two: Write a poem on the theme of love
Option three: Write a ten-word story using all of the following words: Syzygy, Rupert, fish and plastic
Last week option one was to write a limerick with the word nosey featuring in it somewhere. Here are your wonderful results:
Jane Basil is first up and has written four brilliant limericks. Here’s a taster…
The chicken-bellied parson of Aldershot
Was a nosey, backmailing, wicked lot
Even when in repose
The parson’s nose
Could weazel out secrets, and plot.

Steve Walsky always produces something good:
The bird sat safe on a limb
Eyeing a cat with a hungry grin
Then there was a loud bark
Giving the cat a running start
Thankfully a nosey dog had stepped in.
Ladyleemanila took up two challenges including the limerick and poetry options:
Graeme Sandford has gone for something a bit different with his limerick. Enjoy:
Nosey, I am
And Nosey I was
I looks into things
If they’re there – just because!
With my eyes
You ‘could’ say I spies
But, my excuse is; I’m the Wizard of Oz!
A big welcome back to David Harrison. Here’s his entertaining limerick:
When I took round a Valentine’s posy
It was my fault for being so nosy
Wasn’t my amour’s house
It belonged to a Scouse
who went by the name of Red Rosie.
Option two was to write a poem on the theme of hope.
Please read Jane Basil‘s painful, heart-felt poem:
The final option was to write a ten-word story using all of the following words: Collywobbles, pink, wasp and cheese. I love seeing where your minds take you with these challenges:
Smelly pink cheese gives wasps the collywobbles and scary nightmares.
Jane Basil took up all three challenges. Here’s her ten-word stories and a six-worder for good measure:
Pink cheese for dinner, wasp souffle for dessert. Colliwobbles later.
In: Cheese-battered wasp.
Out: Pink stomach lining.
Make pink cheese and collywobble pie. That wasp deserves it.
(and the obvious six-worder…)
Pink cheese gives the wasp colliwobbles.
Carol Campbell wanted to try something different this week so chose the ten-word option:
Finally, here’s David Harrison with his amusing story:
Bunter’s collywobbles rumbled.
“Yaroo! A wasp in my pink cheese!”
