Happy Friday; hope your week has been a good one. It’s been cold and periodically damp here in my part of the state, but down south the areas that were battered by flames a short time ago are now dealing with flooding and deadly mudslides – a definite reminder not to underestimate the power of Mother Nature.
Hopefully you are safe, comfortable, and dry, wherever you may be.
As we said in last week’s post, we are inviting those working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication) to share a bit with us on Fridays – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with.
For those without a story in progress, or those who just want to work on something new, we’ve also got our weekly writing prompt, loosely based this week on an old exercise I found when reading through my writing folder looking for inspiration.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story that begins: “Had I but known what evil lurked in Marybeth Anstruther’s heart, I never would have bought that salamander.”
And includes: the town sheriff
Whether you’re sharing a bit of your current work or writing something fresh based on the writing prompt, we hope you’ll join us for Story Time.
Happy writing to all!
