Happy “National Cherry Tart Day” (if you’re reading this on June 18th). It’s also “International Picnic Day,” so if you pack your picnic basket with charry tarts, you can celebrate two things at once.
If you’re looking to get out of the house and to something a little more active, June is also “National Great Outdoors Month.”
“National Great Outdoors Month in June reminds us to explore our nation’s abundant wildlife refuges, parks, and natural beauty. No matter our preferred mode of enjoying the great outdoors – hiking, biking, kayaking to name a few – nature is calling. Pursue the beauty and majesty of the big skies and open spaces the outdoors offers. This month also raises awareness of the accessibility of the great outdoors.”
For me, today will be “Preparing for Tech Changes Day” as I get ready to have both my laptop and my phone from work “refreshed” next week. Thus, I’ll be spending the day making backups-of my data backups, in an attempt to minimize unexpected disruptions. Fingers cross that all works out well.
After my fun-filled day in the office, my Friday will also include spending some time lounging around the house while trying not to melt; spending some time on the elliptical (once it cools down a bit); 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: Too Darn Hot
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
insanity coconut abandon truth
blessing bastion diamond grainy
apology encounter undersea project
goat bumble ranch baby
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!
