I have lots of books to be read, stories to be written, and tasks to complete from my ever-expanding ToDo list. Naturally, I decided to stop by the local craft store the other day, just to look around. I didn’t need anything, of course, but they had yarn on sale and I found some that was pretty and super-soft (and did I mention on sale!), so naturally I had to get it.
That is why instead of reading or writing or doing, I’ve spent the last few evenings after work turning six skeins of pretty, super-soft yarn into a pretty, super-soft blanket, courtesy of my trusty “J” crochet hook. Can a person really have too many blankets? I’m hoping the answer is no, otherwise I might have to go into the blanket-fort-building business, just to justify their existence.
Anyway, the weather has taken a turn toward the chilly in recent days – perfect time to curl up on the couch with a my new fluffy blanket, a pot of tea, and get some words on the page. I have a number of stories in progress, not to mention several shiny new ideas floating around, but I think I’ll start out giving today’s random words and writing prompt a try.
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.
Here we go:
“When restoring an old house, a mystery writer finds a hidden passageway ”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
locked dusty cobweb brick
splinter damp artificial haunting
camel curse vision skull
blade avenging amateur paradox
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!
