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.


signal  ::  resolution  ::  aggressive  ::  gunpowder  ::  fashion


There are no rules, but here are some guidelines:

  • 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.

  1. Morning, all.

    My effort for this week is over here: Eyes Only

    I’m away from tomorrow so I may not be able to comment on other people’s work as much as I’d like. However, I’ll do my best! Looking forward to reading everyone else’s stories.

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Their leader was an aggressive type dressed in typical bandit fashion right down to his red bandana. Belief in the cause and a fervent resolution to fight to the death shone from his dark eyes and the air seemed to crackle around him with dangerous energy. At any moment he could give the signal and the fireworks would start, but this would be using serious amounts of gunpowder.

  3. She is aggressive. Anything sets her off: if he makes dinner, if he doesn’t; if he laughs, if he doesn’t laugh; if he talks, if he doesn’t.

    He believes it is his timing that needs to be better. He is working on that. He looks for the signals, swoops in if he sees her eyes fall on something he hasn’t done, or worse, something he has.

    He watches out for instruction. Half formed sentences. Toolbox on the table. A page turned down on a fashion magazine. Shopping lists. Letters lying without stamps. A condom on the pillow. A pillow on the couch. His alertness tires him, but dark rings around his eyes (the ones she says age him AND her) indicate many sleepless nights.

    When will he ever get it right? He promises he’ll get it right. Where would he go anyway? He can’t leave. Who would have him? Only she would put up with someone like him.

    Prompts: signal :: resolution :: aggressive :: gunpowder :: fashion

    Giving Up for Lent
    I have made this Lenten resolution that I will drink no alcohol for forty days and nights. Of course after seven days everyone is expecting some aggressive demon will emerge demanding his daily fix or else. However there has been no such effect on my behaviour, nothing to signal ‘beware he must be on the edge’. But I am perfectly able to make my own gunpowder and should I wish I could easily fashion a bomb that nobody could easily detect. Nobody would know it was me. I’m hoping it won’t come to that though despite the fact that I still have five weeks to go.
