Week #24

Please stay safe

Please make sure that you only leave a first name or a nickname when posting as it is important to keep our young writers as safe as we can.


It was good to have the showcase back on it’s own page. If you have had a Terry Culkin toon sent do share them either below in the comments or on Twitter. They are too good not to be seen by the world!

Latest prompt

This week we have part of a strange sentence. It is:

…empty. What a surprise!…

Things to think about:

  • What is empty?
  • Why is the writer surprised?
  • How do they feel?
  • What is the impact of ‘it’ being empty?

The form will close at 23.45 UK time on 16th March

Week #23 (19)

Share your setting

As you know I’m very nosey & want to know all about your work with 100 Word Challenge. I also know that there are classes across the world that are as nosey so do get in touch to tell us how you organise your 100WC sessions. If you are on Twitter you will see some winners of the showcase receiving their certificates but not everyone sees those. So, let’s share them here. You can post in the comments or just email them over. I can add them to the newsletter then. We love pictures!


We had enough nominations to have a separate page this week but there were still not many. Do share any post you think was really good, for whatever reason & they can celebrate with a certificate & blog badge. Send me the ID number by Weds midday (UK time), Check out the latest showcase by pressing ‘Special Showcase’ in the tabs above.
