Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints

I can’t beleive I almost forgot it was Friday.  Pretty ironic since all day Wednesday I thought it actually was Friday.

I blame it on the pandemic.

To be fair, I’m in the midst of a few days off from work, so it’s not as surprising as one might think that I can’t keep track of the days.

As always, I’ve had big plans for taking care of ALL OF THE THINGS during my time away from the day job but, alas, that hasn’t quite happened.  Somehow, working remotely and still keeping my social distance means it is very easy for work issues to find me, even when I’m “off”.  Plus, there was that long nap I took this afternoon—I’m sure I’d have accomplished tons of things if I had only stayed awake.

I did at least organize my TBR pile and found my next new read, as well as a few books that I didn’t even remember I had, so that’s something.  Whether I accomplish anything else today is debateable, but I do at least plan to give today’s writing prompt and 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 either today’s random words or writing prompt will catch your creative fancy.


What if: “Your character is planning a virtual vacation?

Feel free to interpret the “What” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:

propeller         noise                loyal               advertisement

hunter              hideaway       application    raspberry

spirits               thunder           flutter             mission

diplomacy       adventure       frogs               challenge

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!
