Wait . . .. what . . . it’s Friday? Next thing you’ll tell me is that the kids have all gone back to school and football season is in full swing.
Huh, will you look at that. Okay then, hold on a second while I go out and take the patriotic decorations off the porch and haul out the autumn wreath and pumpkins.
Great, now that that’s taken care of, it’s time to focus on all those unfinished things on the schedule to accomplish this year; specifically, the thousands of words, still needed on the current manuscript. Far fewer words would be needed if I hadn’t spent so much time recently reading my way through my TBR list, exacerbated by just how easy it is to check out an eBook from the local library.
Today I’m determined to put down the book and make a serious attempt . . . oh look, squirrel! . . . just kidding.
Playing with the writing prompts on the last few Fridays has been such fun, not to mention reading the creative results that others have posted, that I think I’ll start my writing session with today’s story prompt. Who knows, it may trigger an idea for my own story.
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 month our story prompts are inspired by the Amazing Story Generator©.
Here we go:
“After being left at the altar, a reformed hit man makes a deal with the devil.”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
fugitive mission enforcer captured
frigid deception poisonous confuse
boundary charismatic glutton hat
kingdom gold dancer kitten
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!
