100WC Week #19

Check out the new look 5 Sentence Challenge!

Did you know there is a sister challenge to 100WC? It is aimed at emerging writers. Those students who have just started on their writing journeys. Pop over and take a look!

5 Sentence Challenge

Newsletter news

Each week a newsletter is sent to all classes and individuals who have signed up to 100 Word Challenge. Do make sure you click the email as you may miss some exciting news and competitions! Let me know if you do not receive it – usually by midday on Sunday!


One thing that makes 100WC different to other writing challenges are the comments the posts receive. To get those comments we need lots of people to visit. If you take part and have had a comment, do make sure you find someone in your school  who can pop in and leave a comment on posts from other schools and countries.

100WC Showcase

When you comment, you are able to nominate a post to appear on the showcase. One of our commenters told me

It’s a wonderful achievement when their story is chosen from what can sometimes be several hundred entries.  It really boosts their confidence and encourages them to continue their fine writing.

The last showcase had lots of recommendations. Check it out here WEEK #17

Latest prompt

This week I want you to use this part of a sentence:

…as the flame flickered and then went out…

Things to think about:

  • Where is the flame?
  • Why is there a flame?
  • What might be the result of the flame?

Remember – you must use the prompt as it is written and try to get as near to 100 words as you can.

The form will close on 28th May
