Welcome to Friday – also known as Day 3 of the prosecution in the president’s impeachment trial.
If you had told me months ago that I’d be spending time glued to coverage of the trial in the Senate, I’d have called you crazy (and maybe suggested therapy).
And yet, here I am, spending far too much time with the dial tuned to the news. I’m sure the Hallmark channel is devastated by my current lack of viewership. Hopefully their WinterFest will survive without me. The fate of democracy, however, isn’t quite so secure.
With the trial in recess for the night, it’s time for me to do some work on my To Do list. First up is 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 makes an unfortunate discovery?
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:
collar gum confidence assassination
flawless pill cardio dart
strange tiny balance coat
hollow bayonet affair guidebook
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!
