Happy “I hope your internet is up” Friday. As I write this, painstakingly on my phone, mine is not.
I guess I should be grateful that I have a phone to type on and that the internet did not go out until after my morning meetings, but I’m mostly frustrated at not being able to do all the things I needed to do today. Life in “the cloud” has its definite drawbacks.
Whether I accomplish anything else 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’s internet connection is down?
Feel free to interpret the “What” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
accountable hack harm greed
desolate expansion binge social
absurd apology spider boast
abattoir future afternoon bankroll
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!
