What a difference a few days makes. Last week at this time it was cold and windy and rainy. Today, there was sunshine with blue skies. Well, okay, it’s still windy, but it’s a definite improvement.
Sadly, I’ve spent most of the week inside in front of my computer or on conference calls – which gave me much little chance to enjoy the spring-time weather.
I’m hoping to change that this long holiday weekend. If nothing else, all the rain has caused my yard to sprout like crazy, so my new lawnmower and I need to spend a little quality time outdoors before things get completely out of control
After that . . . who knows what I’ll find to keep myself occupied.
Oh, who am I kidding. I have a stack of books just waiting for me to power down the computer and open them up. Before diving headlong into the new library book I picked up just today however, I plan to give this week’s writing 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 adopted a new pet?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
signal coincidence tree dismemberment
corduroy lantern protest exhibition
challenge mutant hormonal graveyard
fortuneteller cyclops benevolent 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!
