May is shaping up to be a hectic month at the Day Job with lots of deadlines, deliverables, and things to do. This week I got to interview candidates for a summer intern position on my team. It was amazing the resumes the group of recent college graduates had. Almost made me feel like a bit of a slacker.
With the interviews done and the candidate ranking completed, I can at least cross one item off my to-do list as I prepare to enjoy my Friday day off.
On the schedule is running some errands, including a trip to the lumber yard and the fabric store (not both for the same project). Before I get started with my errands though, my pen, paper, story-in-progress, and I will be getting together for a little focused writing time. I’m determined to check “get some new words on the page” off my to-do list.
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 theme to go along with our random words.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story featuring: winning the lottery
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
intruder martini sabotage grandiose
encryption genetic swarm blank
stun hustle paradise addict
bloodstain hell hoax heartbroken
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!
