Based on this news story.
Octo-Grandmother expecting quads. Brave woman.
24 hours left to submit a six word story for prompt: Grandmother (see previous post).
Loved the Princess stories, I think it is a word that can imply lots of others. Another similar word in that sense is Grandmother; it is often used in newspapers as short hand for female, of certain age with children and grandchildren. What can you do with prompt:
Use it with 5 other words or consider it a title and pick 6 of your own words to tell a story. It can be done! See some tips here!
45year old clubbing with Granddaughter.
All are welcome to take part in writing stories or voting for them,which occurs each week between 9pm Thursday and 9pm Friday. If you are new to the challenge here is some more information.
* N.B it is all times are approximations, we have busy lives alongside blogging.
Well done all writers.
Knighthoods (badges) this week have been conferred as follows.
‘Off with their heads!’ Ordered princess 👸
Ruled men’s heart 💓 ; until midnight struck.
Check out the illlustation that went with the story.
Tiara 👸 by day; cowl by night.
How many newspaper headlines and articles, say Grandmother or Grandfather. It is a lot less words than saying 65year old woman with two grown up daughters and 4 grandchildren. Yet is still tells you gender, gives an indication of age and tells you she is a Mother. Often it is used to emotively to suggest vulnerability.
Similarly Princess as six week stories for that prompt have shown, can imply femininity, status, power, diva like behaviour… Yet if you talk about princesses from yesterday which are you talking about if say:
Princess was not a Mother of a princess?
It could be any from toddler Princess Charlotte to Princess Anne who chose not to accept titles for her children.
Princess can imply youth and Grandmother age yet, both words can describe Grandmother Princess Anne.
Using words not typically associated can create extra layers for Princess was enjoying HIS birthday.
Words that reference literature can be used as shorthand for other words. During princess week, have had stories referencing Princess and the pea and Cinderella. Or if say forlorn Romeo – what do you assume he is sad about? The prompt for the coming week is superstition, words like black cat and thirteen are words in that context that can be used as short hand. If you can come up with a 6 week story for SUPERSTITION, pop over to Kirsty’s blog to submit it.
Just over 12 hours until Princess Eugenie marries. Will that be a fairy story? Can you write a 6 word story about princesses? So far stories about powerful princesses, divas, true to life princesses and more.
You have until first thing tomorrow morning to submit, when voting will begin.
