Happy 20th day of NaNoWriMo or, as others call it, Friday!
I hope your week has been a good one or, failing that, at least not a bad one. Mine was a 4-day work week, to be followed with a 3-day weekend, so that’s good. However, the refrigerator sprang a leak the other day, and I didn’t discover the fact for a few days, so that’s not so good.
Who would have guessed something as simple as water could cause so much trouble. Looks like that kitchen remodel of mine that I’ve been thinking about and putting off for years is about to become a reality. If nothing else there is a new floor in the works since water+wood is not a good combination, especially when the wood is particle board, which soaks up water like a sponge.
I love the freedom of having my own house but . . . sometimes . . . it’s not as delightful as one would like. Ah well, now I have an excuse to browse through all of those kitchen remodeling magazines I’ve accumulated over the years and a reason to drop by the local home improvement center to look at options–in a socially distant way, of course.
Between browsing magazines for ideas and waiting for the insurance agent to call back about my claim, I think I’ll 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 has something unexpected happen?
Feel free to interpret the “What” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
experiment vibrator shrimp ark
hopeless carrot anonymous pearl
magnet basket chalk whisper
gutter nightmare aroma hotel
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!
