Welcome to the Wednesday Write-in!

Welcome to the Wednesday Write-in. This event runs every week to help any and all writers take control of their productivity and imaginations. Please join in; we’d love to read your work.


sore loser  ::  nothing  ::  handwriting  ::  slam  ::  melody


There are no hard and fast rules, but here are some brief guidelines:

  • You can use the prompts as inspiration or try to work them into your story somehow. Use as many as you want.
  • When your story is done, post it online (your blog/twitter/in a comment here), tag with #wednesdaywritein if you like, and comment with a link so we can read it.
  • Please take the time to read and comment on as many other stories as you have time for (but we won’t shout at you if you don’t).
  • If you want to write a poem, a script, or something completely different, feel free.

      • I think that’s what happens when the silence starts to talk and reveal everything that was hidden – you can see emotions clear as day. Thank you for reading, much appreciated!

      • Thank you for support, it means a lot to me. English is my third language, in fact 🙂 at first it is tough, but when you have that finished piece of writing in front of you – you know that it is a first step of a long road, full of hard work and joy!

  1. A bit rushed and rubbish today, but here it is:
    The Game
    ‘I have nothing more to say to you. You’re a cheat.’ Ed slammed down his mug and kicked out at the cat.
    ‘Sore loser!’ David jumped up and down and did a little war-dance. ‘Sore loser, sore loser, who’s a sore loser!’ he sang out, to the melody of an annoying TV advert. ‘I want an IOU in your own handwriting. It’s three billion.’
    ‘Not a chance.’
    ‘I’ll tell Mum!’
    ‘Tell her then. I’ll tell her you were greedy and sold off the railways just to build more hotels and then you went broke.’
    ‘Boys! Boys!’ their mother’s voice called. ‘You’d better hurry. The car is here and the driver says there’s a lot of traffic along the Embankment.’
    Ed and David dropped the Monopoly money, grabbed their briefcases and pushed and shoved at each other to see who could get through the door first.

  4. Hi, this is mine. I loosely used ‘handwriting’ and ‘melody’. Not really sure how I ended up with this, but here it is:

    His signature was a score of musical notes,
    and his hair was a rhythm of waves.
    Brass buttons tinkled and shone from his shirt
    and he swished to the music of cord.

    So they were far from home
    and the world they knew
    on discovering
    the silent movement
    of shoes.

    • Interesting use of the prompts. I really enjoyed both pieces and how you guys have a very different approach to descriptions. Lots of great details to choose from. 🙂
