Summer Sizzle – Word Prompt

This is my attempt at a short story from the word prompt: Sizzle that I posted earlier.

See the link below:

The Young man lay on his back and looked at the sun through his slightly open fingers.

He laid on an old blanket, a tartan of blue and yellow, on the warm sandy beach. Only the sound of the sea lapping on the shore and the gentle breathing of a beautiful young woman lying beside him.

He reflected that life doesn’t get much better than this. The smell of the salty air, with just a light odour of seaweed, mingled with the coconut smell of the suntan oil his girlfriend was wearing.

She lay on her front in her blue bikini bottoms, her top lying unlaced to expose her oiled skin to the suns rays.

He could smell the sizzle of her skin.

“I think It’s time you turned over darling, or you’ll get sunburn.”

She lifted her head and lowered her dark rimmed Jackie O sunglasses and lazily replied “Oh just a few more minutes. It feels so good to have the sun on my back after that awful winter we had.”

Looking back on those moments of blissful joy they were bittersweet now as they waited in the clinic for the results of the biopsy.

The Doctor called them into his room. His beautiful wife of seven years looked very apprehensive as he squeezed her hand.

“I am sorry Mrs Clarke, the moles we took from your back are cancerous. Hopefully we have caught them early enough. You will need to undergo radiotherapy as soon as possible.”

The End

Daily Post – You should feel Guilty

I was Flabbergasted when I heard about the demise of the Daily Post, and the Daily Word Prompt. It was an excellent way of stimulating those creative juices and reaching out to a wider community of bloggers, thus attaining more followers.

I think you should definitely feel guilty.

Please see my post below.

WORD PROMPT – Pilot Exercise

Due to the sad demise of the Daily post word prompt, I have suggested that I do a Word Prompt a couple of times a week. 

Dee Kelly at Thriving not Surviving has also said she will start posting Word Prompts

See link below:

We will never have the same scope and outreach as the Daily Post but we can only do our best.

If you share our posts around to reach a wider audience, it may just work.





The Demise of the Daily Post Word Prompt

I find it so incredibly sad that the Daily Press is closing its doors. I will miss the Community pool and the First Friday thingy they did. Most of all though I will be absolutely bereft that they will no longer be doing the Word Prompt of the DAY!!!!!

I can’t let this demise happen, I rely so heavily on the word prompt for Inspiration and also for distribution….

I have access to a Random Word Generator, so What I plan to do is a couple of times a week post my own word prompt. 

What do you think? Is this something you would be interested in taking part in? 

If you want to take part, please let me know, and then reblog so it gets round to as many people as possible. 

All the best
