Sammi Cox is the host of Weekend Writing Prompt.

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Word Prompt





Zombie like movements

Eyes open but unfocused

They talk but don’t make much sense

Unlocking doors, stepping outside

Or a daytime nap turning into a sleep walk

It’s dangerous sometimes being a somnambulist

It’s something out of their control

But when someone acts like one

With their brains awake and working

It’s something to be concerned about won’t you agree

Following unthinkingly what others tell them

Not using their minds but following in trance

Is it still somnambulism?

Word count; 78
