Some weeks can’t come to an end quickly enough and this has been one of them. Once again we have families here in the U.S. trying to understand the latest act of senseless violence. Even here on the other side of the country, there is talk of little else.
Needless to say, creative writing isn’t currently high on the list and even trying to read the current ARC that I’m reviewing has been challenging.
However writing can be a good way to work through issues and even figure out what you think about things. Better yet it can sometimes provide a needed distraction, so after work tomorrow I’ll be giving this week’s writing prompt the old college try.
Care to join me? (I completely understand if you’d rather not.)
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 and would like to share.
If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, maybe our weekly writing prompt will catch your creative fancy. This week we’ve got a theme and some random words to work with.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story where: they all lived happily ever after
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
hopscotch photograph promise daisy
couch whiskey nectar blissfully
charm believe vision contestant
sunshine homemade flawless luck
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!
