Beguile – Weekend Writing Prompt

artwork 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:


Just seeing the word reminds me of you.
You could charm the birds from the sky.
If you smiled at a building-site, the men stopped whistling and clapped softly.
A brief glance could beguile any man.
But you used it once too often.
It doesn’t work now, does it, my love?
