Friday again – how did that happen?
This has been a busy week at Ye Olde Day job, with the arrival of this year’s batch of summer interns. That, coupled with my meeting with a group of GenX staff members, has left me feeling positively archaic. And tired. They’re all so bright and eager and energetic.
My Friday looks to be filled with meetings (oh, what fun!). When I get home there is a slow leak in the outdoor sprinkler system that needs to be located, which means digging up a bit of the front lawn, and a rapidly disintegrating back fence that needs propping up.
Before I get started on my delightful home-repair projects, I’m going to open up my writing journal, take the story prompt below, and get some words on the page, since I’ve been doing far more reading than writing this week.
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 character to go along with our random words.
Here is today’s writing prompt:
Write a story featuring: a misanthropic bartender
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
bully mysterious insanity horror
cadaver royal chameleon horn
void gin award ambidextrous
vixen buffet collision assassin
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!
