Fridays are normally a day off work for me (or at least that has been the case for the past few months), but this week Friday means a pre-dawn wake-up call and a high-profile morning meeting with local corporate executives. It’s all part of a really great project I’m working on, but dragging myself out of a warm, comfy bed will be a real challenge. If everyone has a super-power, then sleeping is definitely mine.
The promise of a Starbucks “Unicorn Frappuccino®” after the meeting might be just the extra motivation I need to get up and out the door on time. When I was getting coffee this afternoon, the woman next to me had one of the Unicorn Frappuccinos®. I asked her what it tasted like and her (whimsical) answer was: “hopes and dreams with a sprinkling of sunlight.” Seriously, who could pass up a beverage with that kind of promise?
Early morning wake-up and delightful beverage notwithstanding, what better way is there to close out another week than with a round of Random Word Improv?
Care to join me?
Whether you’re heads down in your latest manuscript, enjoying the lovely spring weather, or wondering just exactly what “hopes and dreams” taste like, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. After my early morning wake up, I’m pretty sure I’ll need a nap, so feel free to start writing without me, with or without the assistance of your own delightful beverage.
