If you’re reading this on Friday the 1st, are you celebrating National Wear Red Day?
Celebrated annually on the first Friday during the month of February, National Wear Red Day is a holiday in which men and women wear the color red to raise awareness about heart disease. It’s also a day in which women are encouraged to find out their five most important health numbers: Total Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure and BMI (Body Mass Index). By knowing these numbers women can find out their risks for developing heart disease and take measures to prevent it.
I’m sure I’ll be red-in-the-face after I finish my workout at the gym – I wonder if that counts? Maybe I better wear the red-sneakers, just in case.
Since I already know my Five Most Important Health Numbers, I think I’ll focus on writing instead. Once I finish with work, the gym, and dinner, I’m going to give today’s “what-if” and random words 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), if you’re not feeling random, 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, I hope today’s story prompt and/or random words will catch your creative fancy.
What if: “Your character found a magic lamp?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
dreamless cocoon eyetooth forest
guilt halfway stun key
mad academic hot queen
blame cuddle treasure flamboyant
I look forward to seeing your stories in the comments. If you’re not feeling in the writing mood today, or don’t have time, feel free to post suggestions you might have for future “what-if” prompts. Ideas are always welcome.
Happy writing to all!
