Welcome to the end of another week. The days are getting noticeably shorter, which makes my after-work walks a bit of a challenge. At this rate, I’ll be taking my walks at lunch time. On the plus side, at least I won’t have to worry about melting in the heat.
Shorter days also mean that November and NaNoWriMo are both on the horizon. Looks like I have about a week to gather the Fall decorations from the garage and outline the story I’ll be working on for the month. I’m cautiously optimistic about the success of both activities, though there is a definite chance I might be distracted or sidelined by one of the books in my TBR pile. Especially one of the mysteries. I don’t know about you, but I have the devil’s own time putting one of those down once started.
Providing I manage to log off work at a reasonable time and avoid the lure of the TBR pile, I 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 wins a big prize?
Feel free to interpret the “What” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
landscape flight evidence crazy
ambitious dozen cryptic recent
parrot nightfall limousine comfortable
diamond cottage divine 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!
