WWP #284: Rules

This time I am trying my hand at Sammi’s Weekend Writing PromptRules – and the rule is to write a piece is exactly 16 words.


Framed and hung

For all to see and quake

Those who couldn’t read

Take the cake

I am not quite sure if the word count includes the title or not, so here’s another piece which is 16 words, including the title 😀


One for you

One for me

Just how long can it

Go on that way?

Thank you for visiting and reading. If you have a few moments to spare, do share your thoughts and preference, if any – have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Hi Dahlia,
    Both are good.
    First one has humour – who can’t read the rules can’t follow them, can they?
    Second one has emotions – One for you one for me as long as it lasts. Most probably it has to end one day.
    You too have nice rest of the weekend.

  2. Nicely done.
    Most other challenges that I participate in do not include the title in the word count. However, if the first line is the title, as in some poems, I suppose it could be counted.
    I suppose it is up to us. I usually include a post script which I also do not count as part of the challenge. 🙂
