If you’re reading this on Friday, then congratulations for making it through another week. Only a few more and then it will be time to start a whole new year (ack!).
My Friday will include lots of Day Job stuff, but at least no Day Job Commute. I’ll be comfortably working from home – probably in my new flannel jammies – with the Christmas tree twinkling over in the corner and a delightful warm beverage close at hand. I should be spending the afternoon at a Christmas party, but it’s being held quite a distance away and would entail a 3 hour commute back home afterwards, mostl likely in the rain. It would take a pretty great party to make that worthwhile.
I have lots of other things on my Friday ToDo list, including a visit to the dental hygienist, but I’m going to do my best to make sure “writing” is one of the things that I check off as successfully done. I’ll have plenty of time while I’m at the dentist, so I think I’ll use it to warm up my creativity with a little brainstorming about today’s story prompt.
Care to join me? (For the writing, not the dentist).
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:
“Bitter rivals meet again for the first time at their 20-year high school reunion”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
crown contagious fake destruction
ghost velvet whisper ageless
bait different perfection sadness
awkward trust menace tuba
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!
