Elizabeth: Friday Story Time and Sprints

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!
