Twenty-Word Tuesday

Writing short and word-limited pieces for a prompt always helps to get over the writer’s block and it gives a momentary (and much needed) escape to your mind to let those creative juices flowing, freely. Also, writing 20-words doesn’t take much time so you can always go back to your work with a refreshed mind.

Hence, a weekly get together called “Twenty Word Tuesday“. As the name suggests, it will involve writing a twenty-word story for a 1-word prompt given by me. I will post the prompt along with my take on every Tuesday and you will have until the next Tuesday to share your version.

This Week’s Prompt:


His reality was different; his day began when she saw him in her dreams nightmares, always lurking in the shadows.

Come, join in! All you need to do is:

  • Write an exactly 20-word story (excluding the title) using the prompt (the prompt word may/may not be present in the story).
  • Ping-back/link your story to this post, so that everyone (including myself) can read your version.
  • Use the banner given below and the tag- TWT on your post, to help locate the story in WP reader.

Until next time, Cheers πŸ™‚

      (PS: Sorry for the late reply, somehow your comment ended up in the spam section, I didn’t see it sooner)


        1. You are absolutely bang on! These shorter pieces are much trickier to get but they are also so much fun!
          I am very glad that you had fun, I did too. Thanks again πŸ™‚


    1. I have found the shorter the piece more difficult it is to weave a complete story in it.
      So glad to have you on board with this, really appreciate this! Thank you for joining in, Harsh.
      I can’t wait to read your take.

      1. I totally agree with you. Shorter pieces are more difficult to write.
        It was my pleasure. It was something new for me, so I thought I should give it a try.
        Hope you like it.

    1. Thank you, Kate, I am glad that you like it.
      Me too, working on the same story takes the fun out of it. I hoped this would provide an escape.
      It would be super great if you join in! πŸ™πŸ’™πŸ‘β˜ΊοΈ


    1. Thank you so much, dearest Lia! I am so grateful to have your support. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ€—
      I am excited as well, lets see if anyone joins in. Nonetheless, I had super fun writing it. 😁
      And not that I need to mention it but your 20 word poetry would be more than welcome, if you feel like joining in (no pressure at all).
      Much love πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸŒ»πŸŒžπŸŒˆ
