Funeral – Weekend Writing Prompt

Funeral 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

Click here to hear the author read his words:


I’ve travelled twelve hundred miles to be here.
Most people are surprised to see me.
‘Thought you didn’t like her’ is the most common remark.
I shrug and agree.
She was easily the most asinine creature I ever met.
I never understood what he saw in her.
But they stayed married, raised a family.
We never spoke.
So why am I here?
I just want to see someone drive a stake into her heart.

    So, you were not convinced of her demise? I’ve found that stake driving is best done by one’s self in order to ensure a proper job. 🙂 Nice, CE.

  2. I would walk five hundred miles … but twelve hundred?

    Just to see that last nail driven into her coffin ought to have been enough, but noooo, you wanted a stake driven into her heart too, eh? 🤣


  4. Ouch! That hurt! And made me laugh. Good one, CE




  5. Oy. Well. I guess we know why the long travel, then, eh? Sheesh. 😉
