Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints

Welcome to the end of  another week; hopefully yours was a happy one.

Mine was definitely a busy one, probably busier than it should have been because I spent too much time reading when I was supposed to be working on other things (like work and studying).

In my defense, someone on another blog mentioned a series of what could best be described as Regency Cozy Mysteries, and reading them turned out to be a lot like eating chips – difficult to stop after just one.  The stories aren’t great (which is why I’m not mentioning the titles), but the characters are just interesting enough for me to want to continue to read about what is happening to them.

I’m determined that the current story I am reading will be my last in this series, but I’m not sure I believe me.  After all, I’m pretty sure I said the same thing during the previous book.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

For now, I’ve set my reading aside and am about to pick up my notebook and pen and give today’s writing prompt and random words a go.

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 gets involved with a reality TV show?

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:

shackle         brilliant        shameful         crooked 

blaclklist      blossom        wig                    picnic

bronze          guilty              horseback      crowd

drone            exorcism       confession      crayon

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!

One thought on “Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints

  1. These are always so fun! I’m saving a few for a rainy day when I don’t have anything to do but write on a new project. Did you stop at “just one more” Regency Cozy? It’s so hard to stop once the good feelings start coming in from a nice read.
