Welcome to the end of another week. How was yours? I spent most of mine at a conference in Nashville, so I’m a little blurry-eyed (late-night flight) and worn-out today.
It was a great week though and I got a chance to visit somewhere I’ve never been before. As one would expect, the city has more than its fair share of bars, restaurants, honky-tonks, etc., with music coming from all of them. The one street I walked down must have had live-music coming from twenty or so spots, all within a 2-block radius. Fortunately I’m a fan of country music, otherwise I’d have undoubtedly run screaming away after a few days of hearing it 24/7.
I also got to fill the creativity well a bit when I took my camera out and did a city walk-about. Like many major cities, Nashville has bridges, parks, statues, and works of art scattered about. It’s always fun to search them about. The best part, of course, was the local dog park which, when I passed it was full of happily playing dogs.
Now that I’m back and the suitcase is unpacked, it’s time to do a little writing. I think I’ll start by giving today’s writing prompt 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 came up with a great new invention?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
bonus herd confuse bitterness
fanatical electrode sparkle blankly
bottomless identity parallel enlarge
gunk lucky cough experiment
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!
