Happy Summer Solstice (depending on when you read this). What did you do with all of that daylight? I’d like to say I made good use of it, but the truth is I spent an extra-long day at work and barely got out while there was sunlight left.
Definitely poor planning on my part.
At least I was able to enjoy a pretty sunset and I’ll have all day tomorrow to make up for today’s lapse. While I’m happy to see the arrival of summer, I’m less thrilled to realize how much of the year has already passed by. I have a long list of To-Dos for the year from back in January and the arrival of summer means I better get cracking if I’m going to complete them all.
One of the To-Dos that has been languishing is finishing my current manuscript-in-progress. While the other Eight Ladies all sound to be making excellent progress, I cannot say the same. I’ll be doing my best to get my manuscript back on track tomorrow with a morning of coffee, croissants, and creativity (writing, that is).
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. Seriously – feel free to share. I’m going to keep asking until someone does. 🙂
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 deserted island
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
sand current azure brush
wild navigate shadow determined
dusk ordeal future damage
hunter aftermath scheme lizard
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!
