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 Sammi’s Comment Section.

This prompt is one that has me reflecting. 😉 64 words, not including title.


TV shows I loved as a kid are retro footage on YouTube. My favorite toys are displayed in antique malls. 

I still adore listening to the Beatles. To this day, Paul McCartney’s brown eyes or Man from U.N.C.L.E., David McCallum’s baby blues make my heart flutter.

Somewhere along the line I stepped through Alice’s looking-glass. I’m a child stranded in an older woman’s body.


  • Dear Rochelle,

    Isn’t it disconcerting to discover our youth suddenly in the antiques section? What in the blessed f*** !!

    This was brilliantly done.

    Shalom and lotsa love filled with fabulous memories!

    • Dear Frances,

      David McCallum is the reason I started watching NCIS. 😉 What bothers me more than our music on elevators is hearing my sons’ music on elevators. Oy. Thank you for reading and commenting, my friend.




  • Oh my gosh, I’m a stranded child too!! I’ve been hosting a first sentence prompt for a while now and ran across this prompt so I joined in with my own 64 words.

    • Dear Dee,

      I think if we’re honest, many of us are stranded children. 😉 BTW, I host Friday Fictioneers a a 100 word flash fiction challenge. Glad you took the time to read and comment. Off to read yours now. 😀
