Happy Friday. It’s grey and rainy here, which means instead of looking out my office window at boaters on the lake, I’m looking at a sheet of drizzle. It was rainy and sunny earlier today so I was hoping for a rainbow or two, but no such luck.
On the bright side, the flowers that I planted in the backyard this past weekend are no doubt enjoying all the water. The cat, however, is not amused.
I’ve been busy all day trying to catch up on a backlog of work here at Ye Olde Day Jobbe, after last week’s travel and this week’s vertigo. Tomorrow looks like another day of the same, but I’ve scheduled in some writing time at lunch, before my brain completely turns to mush. I plan on giving this week’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 finally sold a screenplay?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
firecracker tactic brilliant doctor
liberating creeper clever loophole
devil decode dolphin affair
ankle booze vision centaur
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!
