There are currently six raccoons on my front porch – it looks like a mom and her kids – so fluffy! That explains all of the thumping I heard in the backyard a few minutes ago. I’m afraid they are destined to be disappointed, however, if they are looking for something to eat. I’m pretty sure the skunk and the opossums cleared everything out when they stopped by a while ago. Meanwhile, my cat is sitting here on the other side of the screen door looking baffled.
Once the “Wild Animal Kingdom” portion of my day comes to a close, I’ll be curling up with a book and relaxing for a bit. After that, it’s on to the enjoyment of a four-day weekend. I’ll be kicking it off by sleeping in and enjoying a leisurely breakfast. Once I’ve gotten that taken care of, I’ll be flexing my creativity-muscles by playing with today’s writing prompt and random words.
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, motivated by Michelle’s story idea post yesterday, today’s story prompt comes to us via the Amazing Story Generator©
Here is today’s writing prompt:
“Having poisoned the soup, a disgruntled nanny thwarts an assassination attempt”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
corruption severe healer aftermath
subsonic photograph memory chamber
brainwash furious festival autopsy
innocent battle zebra panic
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!
