100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups -Week#38

Thank you all so much for taking up the double Alice challenge over Easter. It was great to see how those Alice, rabbit and egg pieces moved into all sorts of other, sometimes dark, places! If you haven’t popped into the WEEK#37 do as there were some great ones towards the end!

Now for this week I’m staying topical! Those historians among you will know that 23rd April is a special date for the English. It is St Georges Day and the date of Shakespeare’s birth and death. No doubt there will be lots of red crosses around and another excuse for a party over the week-end.

Your mission, should you wish to take it up, is a BIG one. We are going to celebrate the Bard by writing sonnets! I can see some frowns! Don’t worry it will stretch your creativity.

  1. You MUST write 14 lines only
  2. You can use 10 syllables per line (choice)
  3. You could use the following rythmn – a-b-a-b, c-d-c-d, e-f-e-f, g-g. (choice)

So, the least you have to do is write 14 lines. Limit is around 100 words. You may need to go over slightly if you choose to do 2 and 3. The topic is of your choice but of course if you fancy including George and that dragon he is supposed to have slayed then feel free!

If this is all a complete mystery to you, do look at ‘What is 100WCGU?’  for some clarification or get in touch. The link will close on 23rd April. Please make sure you visit the others and keep your pieces suitable to a PG certificate.
