I don’t know about you, but I’m a little hazy on what day it is right now.
No, I’m not losing my mind (fingers crossed), I’ve just been off on a business trip all week being bombarded with new ideas and having to *talk* to people. Shudder.
Fortunately, after a smooth and uneventful flight home, I’m currently curled up on the couch with a cozy blanket, a bowl of cafe au lait, and a sleeping cat. Apparently the world did not come to a crashing halt just because I was away from the internet for a week. Color me surprised.
Now that I’m back, having traded in sunny skies for possible rain showers, I have quite a few things to catch up on, including making some progress on my current manuscript. Here’s hoping I didn’t accidentally leave the Girls in the Basement back in the hotel. If I did, they’re no doubt lounging down by the pool, ogling cute guys.
With or without the Girls, I think I’ll get things started by giving today’s 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), 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 was mistaken for someone else?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
crooked emotional hacksaw coward
mask daisies gloomy complicated
paradise scheme fingertip allergic
light flaming moan melody
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!
