100 Words

Each 100 Word Challenge prompt link-up is open for one week, however; submissions can continue to be added as a comment on each specific prompt post, or as a link to your post in the comments. Please, remember to link back to the original prompt post so other Wordsters can find you, and so your readers can find us.

What you need to know:

  • Posts on Wednesday morning (around 10:00 UTC); deadline midnight the following Tuesday
  • One word prompt; you can use the word in your submission or it can be implied
  • 100 words – no more, no less
  • Any genre – fiction, memoir, poetry, thriller, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, your choice…
  • Hyphenated words count as one word
  • If posting on your own website, please link back to the prompt page
  • Add your post URL to Mr. Linky (link to the specific post, and not just the homepage)
  • If you don’t have a website, you can leave your submission in the comment section
  • One submission per person
  • Find the current prompt on the homepage

The following is a list, in descending order, of the most recent prompts.
