Two words are offered each week for consideration. Each word has a similar definition, but one is more expressive. You can pick either word, or both, to use in your story.


  1. Go write something using the prompt: fiction, poetry, thrillers, fantasy, romance, personal memoir... anything.
  2. You MUST use one or both prompts, in any tense or form, as long as it's grammatically correct.
  3. Try to keep your missive to 700 - 1,000 words.
  4. Come back here to link up in the comments section below. Include the URL to the specific post and not just your homepage.
  5. Deadline to enter is Sunday, midnight CST (5 a.m. Monday GMT)
  6. One entry per person.


Ersatz and/or Artificial

[adj] made or used as a substitute, typically an inferior one, for something else; made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally 

 In case you missed last week's submissions for “Profundity” and/or “Wisdom”:

Jonah, “The Wisdom of Job?
Tara, “Behind doors of steel
Nonamedufus, “Traveling Along Singing a Song

Feel free to self-promote your submission by adding a link to it on the Studio30Plus Facebook prompt post.
