Kaleidoscope – Weekend Writing Prompt

kaleidoscope by phil burns

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

I call her Kaleidoscope.
She thinks it’s because she is beautiful, a treat for the eyes.
Whereas really she’s continually, annoyingly, mindlessly, changeable.

  1. Now I can’t help but wonder what she calls you … 😉

    Yes. Well crafted. I find the short to be the most difficult. But I managed to prune off words to meet the task.


  3. Reena Saxena says:

    I hope your kaleidoscope is not reading this 🙂


  4. Ah, a lover of fine adverbs! And humourously, tersely witty as well. 🙂


  5. Blimey, you know her too!


  6. Dear CE,

    As I was mindlessly, pointlessly, aimlessly perusing the internet at numpty o’clock I read your kaleidoscope of 23 words and laughed out loud.

    Nice. Do you need the last comma (the one after mindlessly)?


    • ceayr says:

      Thank you, sir, glad you enjoyed.
      I find I rarely need a comma, but I do, very often, take pleasure from their inclusion.
      Debates on the Oxford Comma, for example, have raged for centuries.
      I find such discussions continually, annoyingly, mindlessly, pointless.
      But I like your question.
