Words For Wednesday

WFW is a weekly writing prompt designed to get our creative juices flowing.  It's been around for quite a while now and we are always glad to see people join us.  You can use the weekly prompts any way you like.  Use all some or none of the words.  The idea is just to become inspired to write...anything...poetry or prose, fiction or nonfiction, sci fi or fantasy. Why not give it a try.  Leave your offering here in comments or on your own blog.  Just let us know if you are posting on your own blog so we can come and read and encourage.  
Here are this weeks prompt words:

configuration, blame, jaundiced, spend, destiny, blank
and/or
cornflower, dusting, minced, tasty, afterwards and plump.

Have fun with these.

  1. A light dusting of sugar to make the minced fruit pies even more tasty, into the oven with them and then served up for high tea, with cream cakes and small jellies all laid out in a leasing configuration on the cornflower blue tablecloth. Afterwards, we all felt quite plump.

  3. G'day, one and all...

    "Joe’s JAUNDICED view on life would eventually be his downfall, but he was too bigoted to realise it.

    His prejudicial, hostile attitude towards life and those who played a part in it caused him to always put the BLAME on everyone else...never on himself.

    It meant he would SPEND the rest of his life alone and lonely. It was his DESTINY...one created by him.

    If anyone dared correct him a BLANK look would come over his PLUMP face. His CORNFLOWER blue eyes would turn icy. He never showed emotion, particularly none of the empathy or contrition.

    A normal person with just a DUSTING of commonsense would never be able to work out the CONFIGURATION of his brain or that of his thought patterns. Both would be unfathomable by the smartest of scientific brains.

    Another huge blow-up at the town meeting was caused, once again, by Joe’s rudeness.

    It was clear to everyone in attendance he was at fault. None of the committee members MINCED their words when pointing the fact out to him. Nonetheless, AFTERWARDS, Joe would not accept responsibility for his ill-mannered, bad behaviour.

    However, the following week, the shire mayor stumbled across a very TASTY snippet of information that could, finally, be Joe’s undoing.

    Time and careful, delicate planning would tell."

    1. Hopefully Karma comes in to roost (after kicking Joe's dunny door in) very soon.

    2. Typo alert....I put an extra "the" where it is not needed.....e.g. "none of the empathy or contrition". It should read - "none of empathy or contrition".

      I'll blame the typo on Shama, my female cat, who has insisted on sitting on my lap every time I've been at my keyboard today! And, she is still insisting!!! There's a battle of wills going on here! No guessing who won!!

    3. A dark chapter in his past will come back to haunt him. Good work.

    4. There is a person i know well who is similar to this. He does have the excuse of Autism, though, for a lot of it.

      Delete
    5. Lee; I know a few people just like Joe and they all deserve what Karma has in store for them. I'm wondering what the Mayor discovered about Joe.

    6. So am I, River! But don't hold your breath...because I don't have clue! lol

  4. The judge viewed Rick's defence with a jaundiced eye, saying 'putting the blame on Janice doesn't impress me'.
    'Destiny has nothing to do with it. Describing her configuration as pleasingly plump and beyond tasty did not GIVE you any excuse to cook and eat her, much less to spread a dusting of minced cornflowers and icing sugar over her remains afterwards.'
    'Despite your previously blank record you will spend the next twenty years behind bars' she added.

    1. A mere twenty years? Yep! I guess that sounds about right from our soft-sentencing judges, unless, of course, Janice was a rabbit.

      You've been watching to many horror movies, EC!! :)

      If I have nightmares to night...I'll be blaming you! lol

    2. I'm hoping it was a chicken but....

    3. It sounds like one of our local judges was giving the sentence. Every time she lets some criminal off, he goes out and kills someone (it happened again last week).

      Delete
    4. He ATE her??? OMG!. You gave us a shocker this week, well done.

  5. I haven't participated in this in what feels like forever. In fact, the last time I wrote any poetry was for Words for Wednesday. I guess I need to crawl back out of my crave, dust off my computer and put my thinking cap on.
