Seedling Challenge #69

Oh my, what strange times everyone are living in right now. Really hope all the VSSers and Seedling Challengers are well and don't get impacted too badly with this virus. Stay in, stay well. And wash your hands.

Also maybe use some of the time to get on with some writing. So have you done a #VSS365 this week that you think would be worth expanding on? Where have this week's prompts taken you with your wee Tweets? The famous VSS365 Prompt Baton for April was held by your's truly and he, I mean me, had a great time with it. The baton for the prompters in the merry month of May is held by Margaret @fhaedra. So follow Margaret to get the prompt promptly.

So what is the Seedling Challenge? Simple: Just take one of your VSS365 tweets from the past week and expand it into a story of up to 365 words, that's a shed loads of words. If you want to, don't take one take a few of the words. Hell, use them all! But remember to wash your hands.

This week's words were:

  • baked
  • bathos
  • angle-bargle
  • horses
  • shoelaces
  • chimera
  • nine

You don't need to include your original VSS tweet as written within the text of the story (though feel free to), just use it as the seed for your imagination - take your tweet for a walk.

If you haven't had a chance to do VSS this week then you could write a few tweet length lines using the prompts above then pick your favourite. Or hell, be a rebel and just write a story based on one of these prompts.

Give it a go and see where your words take you. You'll find 365 words can take you a surprising long way. Looking forward to reading your stories. If you read the others up here (even if you're not posting your own story) feel free to comment about the ones that are up there; writerers like a wee bit of feedback.

Please include within the post your: Twitter Name, Word Count and Title (if you have one).

And remember to wash your hands!
