Charlie – Weekend Writing Prompt

not an oak 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:


Charlie’s attitude was like his followers, somewhat cavalier.
He had a rather bizarre idea about his divine right to tell everyone what to do.
This included how to worship.
You could only worship his god, in his way.
Some folk preferred a more flexible approach.
And with less taxes.
In later life Charlie became a dendrophile.
That was before he completely lost his head.

  1. Wow, you are the second or third post for this word that I have read that has included, at least for me, a new vocabulary word. I think Charlie needs to take some lessons about how to be more cavalier, from his followers, he sounds like a control freak.

    There have since been many good-time Charlies to make up for that one. Enjoyed it.


  3. I hugged a tree this morning. It was quite exciting!


  4. Dear CE,

    It seems we took a similar route this week. I like where you took it. As far as I know my “Charlie” is still leading his sycophants (although not as many as long ago) by the nose.

    Becoming a dendrophile was a surprise. I was expecting him to lose his head 🙂
