Happy “National Donut Day” (if you’re reading this on June 4th)–definitely one of my favorite days. I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be doing in the morning. If you’re not a fan of donuts (crazy, but possible), it’s also “National Cheese Day” and “National Cognac Day”, so there are definitely options.
On a more serious note, it’s also the “National Gun Violence Awareness Day” along with “Wear Orange Weekend.”
“The effect of gun violence on our communities is pervasive, long lasting, and impacts everyone uniquely. Wear Orange is an opportunity to demonstrate our collective power as members of the gun violence prevention movement, bringing together a broad spectrum of organizations, brands, and influencers working in different ways to curb gun violence.”
For me today will be a regular work day–a bit of a change after several weeks of taking Fridays off. I’m hoping to be able to fit in a visit to my favorite donut shop before work–to help them stay in business, of course. Whether or not that plan turns out, I’ll definitely be increasing the resistance setting my elliptical machine another notch (I’m at 6 out of 10) and giving 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.
Prompt: Indulging in a treat
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
sweet decadent blurt honey
savory adorable patient cream
sticky healthy diva ripe
warm contagious drowsy spirit
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 writing prompts. Ideas are always welcome.
Happy writing to all!
