Ms Quickly is continuing to inspire us daily with her quirky prompts.  My first line, except for the last word,  is the prompt.


I have here in my hand a list of words
long words, short words
defining words describing words
active words and passive words
rude words and buzz words
jargon, slang and swear words
but without a zing of creativity
they’ll never tell a story
make a poem or sing a song


All poetry, prose and pictures posted here, except where otherwise stated, is my own, and may only be used elsewhere with my expressed permission. Please don't be inhibited from correcting my bloopers and making suggestions: Most of what I post here is instant, ill-considered and off-the-cuff, in serious need of editing.

  1. Ah, but your creativity made a poem out of nothing at all.

    I love what you did with the prompt! Not only has that zing of creativity, but the sounds are wonderful!

    This is great, Viv. I love the lack of punctuation at the end…as if the story is just beginning. 🙂

  4. The Zings do the trick. This was fun.
    My novel should be available on Kindle in France, too. I elected that. Let me know if you can’t get it.

    Thanks, Viv
