100 word challenge prompt for this week…

This week we have a question for you for the prompt. It will need lots of thought! It is:

…but what if I was in charge?…

Things to think about:

  • In charge of what?
  • Who is in charge?
  • What would the difference be?

I’ve been very impressed with the high quality of writing presented in the previous 2 challenges so I’m looking forward to how you will approach this challenge.

Remember that you MUST include these words exactly as they are written in order to have your writing submitted for the challange.

Good luck!

100 word challenge 2018

Welcome to a new group of students who will begin the 100 word challenge this year. We hope you enjoy the process of writing and sharing your work with the world!

Your first challenge is a picture challenge. Can you be orginal in the way you respond to the picture? You do not need to write a story – it can be a letter, news report, advertisment, explanation, diary entry. poem – any idea that you have which you can make work.

There are only two rules – it must be no less than 91 and no more than 109 words and it must be appropriate for other people across the world to read!


What do you think this family is saying to each other? (By the way, this photo was taken in Singapore).  Good luck!
