Writing Challenges

I Had Nothing To Do With This Prompt

I guess I should take some responsibility for the horror of today’s prompt, but really it’s mostly Ziva‘s fault. And Nicky’s.

Anyhow, “The Day I Met Abraham Lincoln” is a fantastic prompt if you enjoy the feeling of writer’s block. Aw yeah. You feel that? Feels good.


Anyway, St-Patrick’s Day is in a month or so, so here’s a limerick :

I’m back at the bar and I’m thinkin’
‘Bout the day I met Abraham Lincoln
Now I must be on crack
‘Cause the idea is whack
So instead I’ll just get back to drinkin’

That’s all I got.

Now go see what everyone else wrote for Day 12 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing.

    Boy, no shit, CheesyMike. This prompt blows. If it’s Ziva’s fault, remind me to borrow Ziva’s crop and whack her with it next time I get chance.

    More limericks should utilize “whack” in a non-sexual way.

  • Cadeaux

    I am all for the word “whack”…you know I think this Limerick could be about Santa’s reindeer, too.
