Ridiculous Writing Challenge #3

Writer’s block has made itself a lovely nest in my brain. Attempt number three to inject some inspiration into my grey matter.

Challenge #3

Write a 25-word story based on today’s Daily Prompt: Symptom


Exactly 25 words. Not 24. Not 26. 25.

My Attempt


Doctor Google

Milly typed her symptoms into Google. Bad idea. She either had PMS or she was in the throes of demonic possession. Similar symptoms. Different treatment.

Ridiculous Writing Challenge #1


In an attempt to break through my writer’s block, I decided to make up some pointless writing challenges, using ridiculous rules that serve no real purpose.

Challenge #1

To write five alliterative six-word stories.


All the words in each story have to start with the same letter.

My Attempt

1. Seven snakes slithered silently, seeking solitude.

2. Masked maniac meets match. Matrimony, maybe.

3. Coroner caught casually caressing cold corpse.

4. Fishy fireworks. Fragile flesh. Flamegrilled fingers.

5. Dishonourable demagogue deliberately defrauded downtrodden devotees.
