Hope today’s post finds you happy and well.
I’m currently watching the news and listening to the plans for the gradual re-opening of my local area. Though I’m not particularly eager to be in close contact with other individuals, I do have a longing to aimlessly brows the aisles of the local bookstore or the fabric store. For now, the online library app will have to do.
Regardless of what happens next week, I’ll be doing Ye Olde Day Jobbe from my house for months to come (since office buildings are some of the last places to re-open) and dutifully wearing my mask whenever I leave the house. I’m surprised how quickly it has become second nature to slip on a mask as I pick up my keys and purse.
Since heading out to paint the town is not on the agenda any time soon, I think I’ll pour myself and refreshing adult beverage and give today’s writing prompt and random words a try after work today.
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 if your character ruled the world for a day?
Feel free to interpret the “What” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
feelings parade blossom clock
parcel wonder crown canvas
fashionable ocean arrows hinge
country beginning disputed bonus
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!
