Elizabeth: Friday Story Time and Sprints

Today’s dose of adorable came via a photograph posted on Facebook of a row of eight comfort dogs waiting to greet the Stoneman Douglas school kids on their first day back this morning.  I felt calmer just looking at them and hope the kids felt the same.

I was at a conference in a big hotel a few weeks ago, and one of the other conferences there at the same time had a room set aside where attendees could pick up and cuddle with puppies and kittens.  I kind of wished I had been part of that conference instead of my own.  I’m sure that would have improved my conference experience substantially.

For now I’ll have to keep the cuddling to my own (no longer a kitten) cat and look forward to the time (in the not too distant future) when there is a new puppy here to cuddle as well.  While I wait for that, I think I’ll try to kick of my new Day-Off-Work /  Friday-Writing-Practice” with a little creative writing.

Care to join me?

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 we go:

Write a story that includes:  a cuddly puppy

And includes any (or all) of the following random words:

gaget               forest                    dimension          brimstone

boast               adrenaline          vampire               hangover

fool                  coincidence        bell                        flash

rubber            charisma             badge                   drowsy

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!
