This has been an odd week, what with the US 4th of July right smack in the middle. We may have been celebrating our nation’s independence, but I really think of it as a holiday celebrating some really good collaborative writing.
I hope you’ve had a good week, whatever yours involved. Mine will be ending with more of a whimper than a bang, due in part to an 8:00am meeting. Who schedules 8:00am meetings on a Friday? Probably the same people who schedule them at 5:00pm.
Anyway, once things are wrapped up a Ye Olde Day Job, I’ll be heading home for a relaxing adult beverage (or maybe a root-beer float) and then heading off to Ye Olde Writing Desk for some quality (or maybe quantity) writing time. I think I’ll start off with today’s writing prompt and see what happens from there.
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.
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 with the theme: the butler did it
And includes any (or all) of the following random words:
decorum gloves basilisk upright
blank competent sneaky devoted
friendless statuesque risky bourbon
headache ink coffin coil
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!
