Write Anything Wednesday #27

Sorry I’m late! Ironically, being late, either myself or others, is a huge pet peeve of mine.

It’s Wednesday, you know what to do. Write something. An outline, a paragraph, a list. If you have time, write a short story or a few scenes. Revision counts. A blog post, or even better, write a few posts to save for times when you’re so busy you don’t have time to write. Do ten minute sprints. You might be surprised at how much you get accomplished.

Change up your routine if you normally write every day. Go outside, or to a coffee shop. If you normally use a computer, grab a journal or notepad and see if inspiration hits, and vise versa.

TURN OFF YOUR WI-FI!! Don’t worry about emails or Facebook or Twitter or anything else. All that matters is writing.

The important thing is to write. Make it a weekly don’t-mess-with-my-writing-time thing. If not today, then pick a day that works for you.

If you would like a prompt:

  • Write about a pet peeve. Even better write a scene where You do the thing that annoys you the most.
  • Write a scene where you and one of your characters have a conversation. In the scene you find out the character doesn’t like you very much.
  • Do a flash fiction piece. (This is what I’m doing today)

Happy writing!


  1. Nothing Cocoon.

    Black clouds hang heavy,
    Glutinous, they seem to drip,
    Like treacle, dark custard,
    Enveloping all around.
    Cloying, no cutting through
    With blade or hachet.
    Weighed down,
    Pushed from above.
    Unlighted, seeping endlessly.
    Where is that soulful purpose?
    That kindly word
    That splits the void?
