The clock may have sprung-forward this past Sunday, but the weather has definitely been wintery this week. Luckily I took advantage of a break in the rain Sunday to get some much-needed yard work done. Now I’m back to cuddling up in a cozy blanket and trying to make a dent in my TBR pile.
Yesterday I finished Death at Wentwater Court, a Daisy Dalrymple Mystery by Carola Dunn. The story is set in 1923 England and is a fun, entertaining period-piece. It was just the antidote I needed after exposure to too much current political news. I liked the story so much that I went online and ordered the next in the series as soon as I finished reading reach “The End.”
While I’m waiting for my next Daisy Dalrymple fix I think I’ll take the opportunity to do a little writing of my own. I have a scene in my Regency story that has been giving me fits, so I’m planning to do a little brainstorming and/or free-writing with today’s story prompt to get my creativity engaged.
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.

Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story that includes: a fortune teller
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
