I have five pages of prompt words, and I select each week's using the highly technical method of picking a page at random, shutting my eyes and letting my finger drop onto the list. Then I use whichever word it lands closest to. I confess, this week's prompt word had me stuck for a while. I frowned and pen-tapped, and eventually came up with this:


50-Word Vignette #23

Prompt: Competition

We lined up at the chalk. Racing is character-building, teacher said, good for the health. But in my satchel was a half-complete short story, and the deadline was tomorrow, so I left the chalk and walked away. I had more important characters to build; better competitions to fill my time.


Anybody else like to join in and write their own? Just post it in the comments. All welcome.
