Friday already – how did that happen? This week seems to have just raced by, but the number of things on my to-do list doesn’t seem to have decreased at all. I’m pretty sure that two more things were added for every one that I crossed off.
Fortunately I have a little down time now, so I’m going to make some hot cocoa, cuddle up with my favorite quilt, and see if I can make some progress on the mess-in-the-middle of my current manuscript.
Sound like a plan?
Hopefully you have had a little time for yourself and your writing this week too, whether it’s a few stolen moments or a luxurious block of time.
For those of you working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication), we’d love to hear a bit – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with.
If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, feel free to give our weekly writing prompt a try. This week we’ve got a starting sentence and some random words to work with.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story that begins: “One day, Helen hung up her stethoscope and joined the circus.”
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
flexible heights lion emergency
scarf crowd teeth riddle
hideout deception injury risky
associate window frustration escape
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 today’s Story Time.
Happy writing to all!
