Weekend Writing Prompt – Rectify

Published September 12, 2020 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 Sammi’s Comment Section.

This seems to be a recurring theme for me. In fourth grade my teacher nicknamed me “Messy Bessy.” My mother kept my bedroom door shut. I envy those neat-nicks who have a place for everything and everything in its place.


Is it the artist in me?

Or is it the writer?


Mission Impossible.

Try as I might I can’t line up all my ducks

They scatter in all directions

Can this situation be rectified?

    • Dear Dr. Crystal,

      My husband is more organized than I. Although I’d say, in many ways, his environment is as cluttered as mine. Fortunately, we both individual places to keep our disorders separate. 😉 Thank you for your understanding.




  • Dear Disorganized Rochelle,

    No. Some artists are quite anal and meticulously organized. My Drawing teacher today is such. I should have known when a t-square ruler was required equipment. I’m not an architect for Pete’s sake.

    • Dear Bill,

      Your drawing teacher sounds like a must to avoid. 😉 There are times I’ve used a ruler. While i’m somewhat impressionistic in my painting, some things (like the typewriter) can’t be fudged.
      Actually I have a friend who’s a brilliant artist who is disgustingly organized. He says he can’t create in a messy environment.
      I could create in an organized environment, but it seems like cleaning takes too much time that could be used for art.
      Thank you for braving my disorganization to leave a comment. 😉

      • Hey Rochelle,
        Oh, she will be fine. I am the joking and teasing type. Besides, she may be a rule maker, but she is also a rule breaker. I need to loosen up my art work. We’ll see.

        Peace, Bill
