Week #3 ’18

Lincolnshire gets a visit!

Last week I had the pleasure of working in Rauceby C.E Primary School, near Grantham, Lincolnshire, UK. It was super sharing writing with all the classes as they start to blog and use 100 Word Challenge!

This is what they said:

If you would like a visit, just get in touch!


The first showcase of the new year has been published. You can find it HERE. Don’t forget to claim your certificate and blog badge if you are listed!

Latest prompt

This week we are going for five words. They must all be in your writing but can be in any order. The key is to plan beforehand so you get them all in and it tells a story.

The words are:

Professor    Crocodile    Purple    Twisted    Difficult

Obviously, your story will need a character and I think these words give you a couple to choose from!


The form will close on 30th September  at 23.45 UK time
