Bridges – Weekend Writing Prompt

Bridges by C. E. Ayr

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s Comment Section Click here to hear the author read his words:


I build bridges.
I go where I’m needed, create my masterpiece, and move on.
On a visit to my home town I met a wonderful woman.
We married, and had children.
She was loyal and loving, but eventually life as a nomad just wearied her.
I left her, kept moving.
Other women came and went.
Now that I’m old and alone I realise the truth.
I burn bridges.

    Shalom and good health,
