Weekend Writing Prompt -IMPRESS

Published April 21, 2019 by rochellewisoff

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Thanks to Sammi for the challenge.

A few of my high school class mates and I friended each other on Facebook. One day someone suggested we all meet at a local café for lunch. I hedged. Why would they invite me? We never hung in the same social circles. With great apprehension, I went.  

The visit wasn’t what I expected. As teenagers we all worried about what everyone else thought of us. Today we’re simply women of a certain age with more in common than not—adult children, grandchildren and imminent retirement.

We’ve left high school and its emotional baggage four decades behind us. Who do we need to impress?

  • You? A serious student? Not! Lol. I believe most of us can relate to this story. I didn’t believe most of my classmates even knew who I was. Although I admired all the jocks, Nerds, Kings & Queens, I was nine of those. Now, many of us have reunited through Social Media and Class Reunions and we find we all have shared interest of one kind or another. It’s a great story of “I wish I knew then what I know now” kind of thing. Good job. But, that face.


  • Dear Jan,

    I don’t believe I ever said anything about being a serious student. :p Times and people do change, don’t they? Thank goodness. I do know some who’ve never progressed beyond those times. How sad for them. Thank you. ❤
