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.
ISN’T IT IRONIC?
What were we laughing about with my in-laws’ when “they” came? My infant son’s antics perhaps?
Two faceless Air Force uniforms. “We’re sorry…”
A light snuffed out too soon.
One call turned the world upside down.
Would we ever laugh again?
I know it’s a sad one, but I have to go where the muse sends me. My husband’s brother, Jerry, died in a car accident when he was in the Air Force, stationed in Turkey in 1974. He was one of the funniest, sharpest people I have ever known. If this sounds familiar, I wrote about him for another weekend word prompt in 2019. Click here to read that one.
