This meme was started by Delores a long time ago. Computer issues led her to bow out for a while. The meme was too much fun to let go, and now Words for Wednesday is provided by a number of people and has become a movable feast.
Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write. Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or an image. What we do with those prompts is up to us: a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore... We can use some or all of the prompts, and mixing and matching is encouraged.
Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog. I would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme, which includes cheering on the other participants. If you are posting on your own blog - let me know so that I, and other participants, can come along and applaud.
The prompts will be here this month but are provided by Alex J. Cavanaugh
Alex rarely plays but has very generously provided us with with some intriguing/testing prompts.
This week's prompts Alex described as 'odd and funny' words. He gave me extra and suggested I could leave some out. I didn't. Use as many (or as few) of them as you like.
His selection is:
Have fun. And huge thanks to those who come back (sometimes time and time again) to offer encouragement to others.
Thank you Alex. I have really enjoyed your prompts - and seeing the myriad of directions they have taken us on. Words for Wednesday will be here next month as well, but the prompts will be provided by Hilary Melton-Butcher.
