Happy Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day or Friday or whatever your preference is.
I’m afraid the holiday has caught me a bit by surprise. I usually like to do a little holiday-themed decorating, but this year the assortment of random sized and colored hearts never even made it out of the storage box in the garage. To be completely honest, there are still a few random Xmas decorations up around the house. Guess I’ll just go directly to Marci Gras or St. Patrick’s -whichever comes next.
Though I don’t have any Valentine’s decorations around the house, I do have my writing notebook and pen ready and waiting for me to put them to use. I think I’ll start with today’s writing prompt and/or 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 random words and writing prompt will catch your creative fancy.
Note: Today’s story prompt and random words come to us from a comment Kay made on my Wednesday love story post. I hope you have fun with them.
What if: “Your character takes Valentine’s Day into his/her own hands?
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:
murder cook poison smother
feckless police chocolate rose
boyfriend finally strawberry pillow
husband smack frozen champagne
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!
