100 Word Challenge: Blank

For the longest time, my writing mojo has been on the fritz. I just couldn’t get my brain to come up with any stories, or at least any that I wanted to pursue.

That was until today. I’ve been taking notes while watching documentaries on Netflix. There are a lot of good fictional story ideas meandering through those real-life events and people.

I got an inkling of an idea and started making story notes. I played it over in my mind for a couple of days, thinking I could, perhaps, flesh it out into something.

Today, I finally sat down to get my thoughts down on paper, or rather on my laptop, and wrote nearly 1600 words… that ’s about half of a NaNoWriMo day!

I’ll be posting bits and pieces of that story over the next few days, until then, let’s get to this week’s 100 Words.

“You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.” – Jodi Picoult

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “Blank” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

  1. Lost love, what would I say how could I explain? Everything I feared was coming back to haunt me. I couldn’t even utter a word, I was to afraid of what I would say. All I could think of is the sacrifices I made. I grabbed a blank sheet of paper and expressed my frustration in black and white. How could this of happened I thought it was real? I was no longer in love! What I once felt was turned upside down, a blank canvas with a bucket of paint and no muse. So I continued to write nonstop!
