The Mix ‘n’ Match Mini Writing Challenge – Week 1

I’ve decided to join in with The Mix ‘n’ Match Mini Writing Challenge on Susanna Hill’s blog. Every week for the next 7 weeks, Susanna will post a new writing prompt to write a 100 word story from.

For the first challenge, I chose the prompt words camel, cranky and beach and wrote the following 100 word story:

Mr. Camel Needs a Break

Mr. Camel was cranky.

“What’s given you the hump?” asked Mrs. Camel.

“I’m tired of life in the desert…

The endless sand…

Searing sunshine…

Relentless heat…

I need a change. A break from the norm. A vacation!”

“A vacation!” cried Mrs. Camel, excitedly. “I’ve always fancied the city.”

Mr. Camel groaned. “Far too busy.”

“The mountains?”

Mr. Camel gasped. “Far too dangerous.”

“The lakes?”

Mr. Camel grumbled. “Far too wet.”

“So… where then?”

Mr. Camel grabbed a travel brochure.

“I was thinking here.”

Mrs. Camel peered at the picture…

Endless sand…

Searing sunshine…

Relentless heat…

“The beach!” she said. “Perfect!”
