So, did you make it through the week without access to Facebook and Instagram on Wednesday?
Did you even notice they were down?
We use some related apps here at Ye Olde Day Jobbe, so Wednesday included lots of browser-refreshing and refrains of, “is it up yet?” On the plus side, we were probably more productive than usual that day.
Now that everything is back to normal (relatively), it’s time to turn our thoughts to the weekend. The persistent rain here has finally taken a break and it’s been beautifully sunny (though chilly) for a few days. I see some lawn-mowing and weed-pulling in my future.
I also see some writing in my future, though I may procrastinate my way through the weekend before I actually get to it. Like Michelle, I am a permanent resident of Procrasti-Nation. I will pull out my pen and paper eventually, however, and once I do I plan on 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 if your character ruled the world for a day?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
overboard flirtation bleeding bloom
muscular sideshow ghoul tennis
hustle festival sparkler crushing
photograph serum peepshow zipper
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!
