How much can you say in 200 words? Surprise yourself!
- Write 200 words (tops) of fiction/essay/poetry, inspired by the word prompt. You must include the word prompt itself, or at least a recognizable form of the word.
- You have 1 week to post your entry as a reply to the word prompt post. Multiple entries from the same writer are welcome. Original works only!
- Please keep it classy (PG-13) – nothing gratuitous.
- The person who contributed the word prompt will select 1 winning entry. The winner contributes the next week’s word prompt and selects the next winner!
Writers retain full copyright over their work, of course. If you like, use a screen name to keep your entries anonymous.
If you would like to revise your entry, simply re-post your entire entry with the revisions made, and the Write200 admin will remove your original draft.
This website was inspired by an ongoing 200-word informal writing exercise/competition that used to be held in the forums at BeWrite.net.
