More Fun with Prompts after Writing Challenge Ends


The February #write28days challenge is over. I missed four prompts – Days 23, 24, 25, 27 – common, saver, problem and favorite. Hmm, could I have more fun with prompts even though the challenge is over? What if I could use all four of these words in one post, or maybe even in one sentence? So, I stopped to do just that!

Is it a common problem to be a saver of favorite things?

Next, I wondered if I could use them in the order they first appeared.

At the common garden, the seed saver had a problem and couldn’t find her favorite flowers.

Then, I thought I might have more fun with prompts and see how many sentences I could come up within 15 minutes. So, I’m setting the timer. Let’s see how well I do! No promises that they will all make sense.

  • The saver of bottle caps couldn’t find his favorite ones, which was a common problem.
  • The problem was I could not be a saver of all my favorite things, because there was no common place to store them.
  • He was a saver of every common thing, but the problem was that she only wanted her favorite ones.
  • Common problems can become easy when we are savers of favorite solutions.
  • He’s a saver of all his favorite tools, but she thinks it’s a problem because there are too many of the common ones.
  • Somewhere, two common people are savers of both their favorite things, and there is no problem.
  • A problem comes when each wants to be a saver of their own favorite choices and not share what they have in common.
  • Common ground is shared with no problem by all who are savers of favorite joys.

Did you enjoy my little adventure of combining words? Maybe you could try it, too!


It’s good to have fun with words or activities that bring joy, don’t you agree? When we share our laughter and our tears, we show that we have things in common. Our smiles or words or even patience in trials can help bring encouragement to others. We may not enjoy all the same activities, but we can cheer each other on.

As we go through our days, let’s be thankful for what God has given us. Even in the hard times, His presence goes with us to comfort and sustain. May these scriptures encourage you as you read and take to heart their words.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb: sweet to the taste and health to the body. (Proverbs 16:24)

Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer. Share with the saints in their needs; pursue hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. (Romans 12:12-14)

A joyful heart makes a face cheerful, but a sad heart produces a broken spirit. (Proverbs 15:13)

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17)
