I can’t believe I forgot it was Friday!
In my defense, I have the day off work today, so all I was thinking about was the various projects I would have time to work on (theoretically) and that I could sleep in instead of joining the commuter rush this morning. Sadly, “post” and “write” didn’t make it to the initial list.
Now that I’ve come to my senses – thanks to a jolt of caffeine – I’m rethinking my erring ways and making sure there’s a spot for writing on the list, right there between a trip to the hardware store and baking oatmeal pecan cookies. To get things started, I plan to warm up my creativity with today’s story prompt.
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. Thanks to all who have been playing along these past few weeks – I’m always amazed with the stories that come out of a set of random words.
Here we go:
This week we’re revisiting the story prompts from past weeks for those who didn’t get a chance to play along or had additional ideas to try. Here are our potential story starters:
“After receiving a life-changing prophecy, a temperamental sculptor must decide between love and money.”
“After being left at the altar, a reformed hit man makes a deal with the devil.”
“When restoring an old house, a mystery writer finds a hidden passageway ”
“A scandalous family secret is uncovered during the reading of a will.”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
innocent corpse vulture haywire
poet estate emerald cheating
ballroom serum logical blame
ornamental hatchet dove warning
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!
