If this is Friday, it must be Belgium.
Wait, that’s not right. It does make me think I want to go watch a light-hearted rom-com/caper-movie though. Luckily I have many options to choose from.
First, however, I have work to finish, some pre-publication ARCs to read/review, and two library books that are due to go back on Saturday. Really, the days are just packed.
This has been a busy week catching up on all kinds of odds and ends, including *finally* remembering to book my flight for this summer’s RWA conference. I booked my hotel in November, the conference in February, but completely forgot about the flights until Tuesday. Fortunately, all worked out well and now all that’s left is reading through the conference workshops and picking out all of the “can’t miss” offerings.
Before I get further distracted with conference planning however, I need to spend a little quality time getting some words on the page. My creativity seems to still be in winter hibernation mode, so I think I’ll try to wake it up with this week’s writing prompt and random words.
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 long-lost relative?”
Feel free to include any (or all) of the following random words:
gossip colors python endless
alarming ambush contestant heartbeat
wilderness director horoscope invisible
junkyard coma accomplice contempt
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!
