A week ago, the sun was shining, spring had sprung, and I was getting my sprinkler system ready to go back into action. Today, however, it looks like winter is not completely done with us just yet. It’s been intermittently overcast and rainy most of the day and I’ve been quite glad I didn’t pack away the cozy blankets just yet. Even the cat hasn’t wanted to go outside and has instead been curled up asleep on the couch for much of the day.
Since it looks like I won’t be working out in the yard on my day off tomorrow, I guess I better find something to do inside instead. Fortunately I’ve got three stories just waiting for me to buckle down and get some words on the page, not to mention a set of random words to play with. Writing will definitely be on my Friday agenda.
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 today’s writing prompt will catch your creative fancy. This week we’ve got a situation and some random words to work with.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story with the theme: interviewing for a job
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
clairvoyant charisma horrific bent
french thief disfigured clever
elite delicate pragmatic bloodlust
dismal naïve companion robot
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!
