Friday already? How did that happen?
This week didn’t include much writing outside of the day job, but I did do a great job on my “get rid of one thing every day” goal.
At the end of last year Michille posted about the successful completion of her 2019 goal to basically “get rid of stuff.” Inspired by her resulting empty drawers and clean mudroom, I decided to adopt the goal for 2020. I don’t have a mudroom, but I’m visualizing a tidier garage and maybe some empty dresser drawers too.
It’s currently day 16 and I’ve already gotten rid of close to 100 items. True, many of them were holiday decorations that hadn’t been out of their boxes for years, but I’m pretty sure they still count. Next up is the household-goods cupboard in the garage. Since I’m pretty sure I have pots and pans out there that came from my parents house, I’m sure to find plenty of things to part with. I’m visualizing an empty shelf in my future.
Now that I have my tidiness goal well underway, it’s time to turn my sights on writing. I think I’ll start things off by giving today’s writing prompt and/or 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 random words and writing prompt will catch your creative fancy.
What if: “Your character goes on a blind date?
Feel free to interpret the “What if” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
glamorous psycho binge costume
greedy horrors nervous crisis
scientific glacier pearl believable
hope system blockhead sideways
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!
