The end of another week already? This one has sped by without my completing nearly as many tasks from my ToDo list as I was hoping. On the plus side, I didn’t wind up adding too many new tasks to the list, so that’s a win . . . of sorts.
The focus this week has been on taxes (why yes, I did put them off for quite a while). While the taxes themselves were fairly straightforward, the process of making sure I hadn’t overlooked anything meant I spent a fair amount of time sorting through all the papers on my desk and getting my files organized. Sadly, it seems the last time I engaged in that particular exercise was just about a year ago. Ah well, better late than never.
With the paperwork and taxes taken care of I can enjoy my day off work with a clear conscience. Judging by the height of the lawn in the backyard, my day better include a little lawn-mowing. After that, I’m planning on some dedicated writing time, starting out with either a run at the 200-word writing contest Kay mentioned yesterday, or an attempt at the random words below. Whichever I choose, words on the page is my end goal.
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: on a cruise ship
That includes any (or all) of the following random words:
ebony celebrity dream blackmail
guilt corrosive chocolate experiment
honeymoon frustration glamorous puppet
feather drunken buffet overboard
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!
