Elizabeth: Friday Story Time and Sprints

The cat is curled up next to me, I’ve got a tasty espresso beverage nearby, and a Georgette Heyer book just waiting for me as soon as I finish this post.

Life is good.

Unfortunately, my Friday will bring a longer than normal commute and a very long all-day meeting.  Not so good.  No doubt I’ll be itching for a nice workout at the gym or maybe a nice long walk when it is all done.

One thing that will definitely be on the agenda, assuming I have some functioning brain-cells left by the end of the day, will be getting some words on the page.

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:  a surprise party

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

spirits                 arrival                 mongrel           twin

candle                propellant          jewel                 ambulance

martyr                undersea            morsel              confrontational

peepshow          balcony              castle                blabbermouth

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!

One thought on “Elizabeth: Friday Story Time and Sprints

  1. Hmm…I need to change a scene in my WIP where the protag is upset about a surprise visit from her mother. It’s currently at a diner, and I’m revising it to be at a yoga class, so the surprise isn’t a party or even at a party :-). And I might be able to work in 3 or 4 of these words at most, but if I get to it sometime this, week, I’ll post it (or at least a truncated version of it).
