Wicked Word Wednesday No. 1

Blogging 201 challenged me to create a blogging event.

So, it is with greatest pride and deepest pleasure that I present to you

Wicked Word Wednesday Logo 3As this is the inaugural Wicked Word Wednesday, I’ll take some time to explain the rules. If you’ve already read the rules, feel free to jump to today’s Wicked Word.

Each Wednesday, I reveal a new Wicked Word.

I choose the Wicked Word based on a few mathematical algorithms and the New American Heritage College Dictionary.

Then, it’s up to you to compose a post around that word.

Be creative with your poetry, prose, or photography.


! YOU !


Create something that will move and inspire!

I welcome all forms of prose, poetry, and photography; however, please avoid graphic/excessive profanity or overtly disturbing mental images.

Use common sense: what would you want children reading or viewing?

One entry per person regardless of category.


Post your entry on your own blog.

Please link back to the current challenge

Post a link to your entry in the comment box of the current week’s  prompt post.

From the home page, click on the current Wicked Word Wednesday.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your link in the comment box.

Indicate which category your post falls into (Prose, Poetry, Photography)

Include your Twitter handle if you have one.

No social media?

Leave a name or nom de plume so I can give praise if you’re a winner.


A prompt will post on the home page of this blog on Tuesdays at midnight (Eastern Time).

You will have until midnight (Eastern Time) on Wednesday to link your entry in the comment section.

Any entries time stamped after midnight on Wednesday of that week will not be eligible.

For sake of clarity, I am on New York Time.

Still confused? Check the World Clock!

Winners are announced Saturday or Sunday here on the blog as well as on Twitter and Facebook.


Get those creative juices flowing.

Read other blogs and comment. I hope to grow a Wicked Word Wednesday community.

Furthermore, most everyone enjoys feedback!

The life of an artist can become cloistered and lonely without a network of positive creative types.

Invite others to join in. This is for fun, creative inspiration, and a great way to connect with other creative types.

Did I mention you get bragging rights and a cool badge to post on your site (or original blog post) if you are a winner?

Enough with the minutia; what’s the Wicked Word?

This Wednesday’s Wicked Word is . . .


The Game is Afoot!

I am deeply indebted to Grace Black of Three Line Thursday for the Event Guidelines
