Writespiration #130 52 Weeks in 52 Words Week 35

writespiration-20172017 brings 52 challenges over 52 weeks.

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

Submit your entries in the comments or on a blog post and I post them the following week with the new prompt. You have until Sunday to enter.


But first, some announcements.

I am due to announce the winners of the writespiration competition by the end of August. My intention was to announce today. There is a slight delay, due to a bout of badly timed shingles. I will announce no later than the end of September. 

I think it’s also time I faced the fact I can no longer run the writespirations effectively. I have been struggling for the longest time to just keep up with the normal blog comments writing/ reading blog posts as well as reading the entries for writespiration. The number of blog posts I’ve posted has declined radically over the last few months and it’s because I can’t do it all… Clearly, I can’t, I have shingles. I’ve been fighting this decision, thinking that eventually, I’d get more time, I’d find a way to fit it in. But this isn’t a time limited thing, I’m not going to magic up another 4 hours a day to fit everything in. This is a life pandemic and I need to reprioritize or I won’t be publishing anything.

Therefore, I have decided to keep the comments fields in writespirations close permanently. I understand that many of you will not want to continue to participate and trust me, I understand. No hard feelings here. For those of you that do want to participate, I will leave open the pingbacks, and if I can, I will pop along, but for now, at least, I’m taking my hat out of the arena until I’ve published a few more books.

I will continue to post prompts until the end of the year as they are already scheduled.


This week your challenge is to write about the Pyramid.
