I am definitely happy to see the end of this week. I spent most of it in “Leadership” training at Ye Olde Day Jobbe. Long days of talking, networking, group exercises, and more networking are draining, especially for an introvert / non-people-person like me.
Fortunately, I’m all done (for now) and can look forward to a relaxing weekend and (maybe) a visit from the Easter Bunny . . . well, as soon as I take care of some of the work that accumulated while I was out in training I will.
After I catch up on work, and before I start thinking too much about chocolate bunnies and colored eggs, I’m going to carve out a little time for some writing. Though I keep getting distracted in the midst of my efforts, I’m determined to give today’s story prompt and random words the old college 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:
chewable hoodwink sauce binocular
guilty money apocalypse stun
freezing camel collusion afterlife
scream crash grotesque alcohol
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!
