Saturday Mix — Lorraine 15.04.17


Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lorraine’s version. Using an abecedary approach to this week’s blend of flash fiction, poetry and shadorma. Lots of A, B, and Cs to had. Feel free to try any or all of the challenges.

The flash fiction this week is another columnar event. Choose a word from columns A, B, and C then write a piece of flash (25 to 150 words) using your three choices. If you’re really adventurous, pick 2 from each column. Other forms of the words are acceptable.

Column A                 Column B             Column C

banker                       activate                 box

accountant               bounce                  address book

call girl                      cuddle                   butter

collector                    curse                     chair

antiques dealer        bury                      apple

butcher                      annul                    anchor

body builder             curl                       curtains

car washer                bludgeon              bath tub

assistant                   approach              cheese


Learn your abcs: choose a poetic form from the glossary of forms, poetic terminology and literary devices (on the side bar) that begins with a, b, or c. Create a poem using that form.

Or create a poem using the rhyme scheme abc

The familiar shadorma uses the non-rhyming syllable count/beat 3/5/3/3/7/5. It can comprise one or multiple six line stanzas. Choose as your shadorma theme, topic, “story” an a, b, or c “word/phrase.”

      Very stark and dark — a shadorma with bite. Well done.
