Are you in the holiday mood yet? I can hardly help it myself, having been watching the Hallmark Channel holiday movie marathon for weeks now. I figure it’s better for my piece of mind than watching the nightly news.
My house is definitely getting in the holiday spirit, though not very quickly. There is a holiday tree in the corner, but it’s still awaiting lights and ornaments. Guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.
Right now I’m just focusing on making it through one final day of work before calling this week done. I was off at a conference for a few days, so that made the week fly by. As a bonus, the conference was near a favorite New Orleans style restaurant, so my week included Jambalaya and Beignets – a definite win.
Now that the leftovers are gone, it’s time to turn my mind back to writing, which has been on the back burner lately. I have some revisions to do, but first I think I’ll flex my creativity a little by giving today’s story 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. Thanks to all who have been playing along – keep those stories coming.
Here we go:
“A stranger walked into a bar . . . ”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
fog gargoyle academic naked
gold blindly carnival brilliant
bait abduction perfection hitchhiker
billionaire crazy loner princess
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!
