Hi there and welcome to the end of yet another week. Keeps happening, doesn’t it?
This week, among other things, I spent some time in San Francisco. While walking off a day’s worth of stuck-sitting-in-meetings”, I encountered the whimsical Museum of Ice Cream, which my son tells me is “an Instagram hot spot.”
The museum is “an experiential installation inspired by ice cream” and among other things, visitors can jump into a pool full of sprinkles.
Well that sounds like fun.
According to the museum’s website, it was born “under the premise that ice cream is a universal symbol of joy, a personal pleasure, and a transportive vehicle for anyone’s imagination.” I love that, as I do their “anything is possible” tag line.
Speaking of “anything is possible”, we’ve got a brand new writing prompt and sixteen random words just waiting to be turned into an entertaining story. Our Friday sprints have inspired some fun entries and I’ll be doing my best to add one of my own this week.
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 opened their own museum?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
lovesick recluse project illegal
couch electric blindfold bite
riot industry aficionado confidential
brute felt exquisite philosophy
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!
