How’s everyone out there? Still doing okay?
I’m doing fine though even I, introvert that I am, am about ready to go back to the office for a little human interaction. I was thrilled to get to the grocery store yesterday so I could pick up some milk and assure myself that I’m not staring in an episode of “Last Man Standing.”
I was online chatting with a co-worker yesterday who is working from home along with her husband and has apparently had just about enough “togetherness.” I guess no matter which end of the spectrum you’re on, after a month you start to wish for something else.
I’ve been going for a walk in my local park before dinnertime every day–socially distant and with my mask–which is a nice chance to get out and about and at least see people from a distance. Everyone has been pretty good about keeping far apart, except for Sunday when there was some Easter egg hunting going on.
I had fun with Wednesday’s short story (you can check it out here if you missed it). I think I’ll see if I can build on it, using today’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 either today’s random words or writing prompt will catch your creative fancy.
What if: “Your character tries to make bread for the first time?
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:
pretend monochrome glow copper
uprising chemical blood victory
scheme headstrong fatality hollow
debris vision burning pragmatic
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!
