Wednesday Words for second week of November

Wacky Wednesday book cover.jpg
Talent stretches across decades.

Last Wednesday brought some great writing!  It was, like, a gift.

This second week of November provides two sets of words and a sentence prompt. Choose one set, both sets, sentence prompt, just a few words--it is yours for the taking! See what you can make from them:

Wall, mail carrier, cool, flourish, wedding, creep

And/and or/Or

Poll, graduate, floor, message, break down, exclusive

The sentence prompt for this week:

Half the names on the list had already been crossed off.

Write!  Take a leap in the world of words!  Start with one word and let your fingers do the walking!

You may post on this comment space below, or post on your own site.  Please post back to this site so writers can find you!


Wednesday’s words are being posted on Tuesday, 11/10/2015, because tomorrow is Veterans’ Day. On November 11th, my own blog will be dedicated to remembering and honoring brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for their country.

  1. Why were they crossed off?
    Because they had a cough.
    They could creep the wedding.
    They may soil the wall or bedding
    Then germs would flourish all day
    That would not be cool, I say
    Newly weds need some lovin
    Don't listen to what the mail carrier is shovin

    1. Lying be with a mound of soggy tissues makes the wedding night a different experience, for sure.

  3. She leaned against the wall and glanced out the window. The mail carrier would arrive soon. She had to keep her cool. One more to add to the list. With a flourish, she grabbed her knife and waited by the door.
    Soon all of her ex's wedding party would be dead.
    The creep deserved it!
    (Sorry, went in a dark direction with this one!)

    1. Excellent! Moving over to the dark side is an expression of your day. Thoroughly enjoyable. Poor mail man.

      Delete
    2. I liked it though, it was easy to do with the word creep inserted! More funny (knowing where your words arrive from) than dark!

  4. Drowning, a fall, machinery malfunction, a car crash... Half the names on the list had already been crossed off, but it was getter harder and harder to make it look accidental.

  5. Hello Susan....here's my little story using all of today's words....

    "I was up against the WALL from the moment the MAIL CARRIER dropped off the WEDDING invitation in my letterbox!

    I couldn’t believe that CREEP John from Kate and Brad’s engagement party thought he was going to be my partner during their weekend of celebrations; that I would be EXCLUSIVE to him during those days! He just doesn’t get the MESSAGE through his thick skull that I am not in the least bit interested in him. I certainly have no desire to go to Bali with him to attend Kate and Brad’s big day!

    I’m going to have to BREAK it DOWN for him in slow, precise, concise words. I’ll do it with a FLOURISH, but I will be COOL about it, too.

    I really don’t enjoy hurting anyone’s feelings, but, for goodness sake, everyone has a limit - and I’ve reached mine!

    I’ve given him no encouragement, but the way he’s ignoring all my so far subtle messages, I’m going to have to GRADUATE to harsher, more direct methods. Perhaps I’ll create a made-up pointed, direct Opinion POLL filled with pertinent questions, and give it to him to complete. That might wake him up to the realities of Life!

    I wonder if then he’ll finally get over his fanciful dreams about him and me getting together.

    It ain’t gonna happen, John...not in your wildest dreams; and most definitely not in mine!!"

    1. Love it Lee. Mind you, some people are slow learners...

    2. If I were that guy, I'd get the idea. He must be really dim, or dangerous. Excellent! So excellent!

      Delete
    3. This was totally a fun riot of a read, your graduating to harsher words often necessary for some folks, which John very well could be in need! Great use of all words in your little story.

      Delete
  6. And here is my completion of the sentence....

    "Half the names on the list had already been crossed off...so I couldn’t help but feel confident about getting the promotion I so badly wanted. However, not to count my chickens before they were hatched, I tried my hardest not to let my confidence run riot.

  11. Count me in this round! Here's mine.
    Half the names on the list for the exclusive wedding of Baron Peabody and Lemon Cove's only female mail carrier, had already been crossed off. Yet a running poll lingered in hurried scribble across the lunchroom wall. Not cool being bias, but which graduate or member of parliament along with an endless list of his past girlfriends warrant scratching off the list? Of course anyone omitted might boldly creep through the cracks and crash the reception dance floor. Certainly those eliminated deserve a cool message of apology, so their understanding can flourish before a break down of ill nature strikes randomly.

    1. Go, Baron Peabody...ill nature will strike, and he would likely be the one to do that.
      Such a wonderful story! More, please?

  12. Baron Peabody and the female male carrier is a wonderful twist. I would love to hear more of their story. How did they meet? How will wedded life go...
