Sammi Cox’s Rules:
The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:
•your poem/prose must contain this week’s word. The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
•the length of your poem/prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.

Dawn looked at adam. Her blue eyes pierced right through him as she stared intently at him.
But adam, she said, with a huge sigh, you know I am right! I am far more sapient than you are!
Women are way more sapient!
Adam kept disagreeing with her! No! He shouted, It isn’t so!
Oh yeah? well then, give me 3 good reasons why it isn’t so!
Adam couldn’t give even one. So after much thinking, he gave in and walked off.
Dawn had won the argument, see?
She always knew women were more sapient than men.
They had all the answers to arguments about that too!
She decided to go see what all her friends were up to and to tell them I won an argument!
Meanwhile, Adam was busy trying to think of reasons for why men and women differed so much.
I suppose I’ll never really know, he said, as he stared glumly into his cup of tea.
#NDRW – #60
I descry a guy
In the morning sun
What is he doing
Where is he going?
Who is this guy?
Can he see me?
Does he know how curious I am?
Does he know I want to know
What he’s up to?
That is what I like to do
As I descry
In the distance
The same guy
Making his way
In my direction
Now picking up his pace
He’s getting closer to me
I think its time I duck now
Before he accuses me
Of being a spy!
#NDRW – #59
shaking, I sit here
another bad dream
will this ever end?
And as my eyes spring open
And my dream fades
What is the message?
The longest day of my life was…
When I spent the night in O’Hare airport! Oh my god was that a long night!
My flight had gotten grounded due to the snow, it was Christmas time and I was visiting my partner Jess in Illinois.
I had to wait in a room all night! I guess I was lucky I had a room to wait in!
However I was on my own for the majority of it as the staf went off duty at 10 pm!
I didn’t sleep a wink! Instead I was on my phone texting Jess all night!
Being blind and alone in a big airport was so scary!
I never want a repeat of that again!
To top it off, when I finally did get on the plane the next morning, they never put my luggage on so I had no bag when I got to my destination!

For another day
Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You
don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where
your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below
so others can find you.
Today’s prompt: surgeon, Chicago, doorknob
The surgeon lived in Chicago. He loved where he lived. He worked in a leading hospital, and he loved his job. He saved peoples lives every day, what could be a better job than that!
He had gone down to the hospital café to have breakfast. He sighed happily as he sipped his coffee! Suddenly the doorknob turned and another surgeon walked in.
Hurry, hurry he said! Your needed upstairs!
Quickly they both left their cups on the table and rushed out of the room!
