Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Happy Friday, Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine’s Monday, or whatever you feel like celebrating! 

I’m just glad it’s the end of the week and the start of a 4-day weekend.  I’m definitely looking forward to a few days away from the office–or from the corner of my couch that has been serving as my temporary pandemic office–since I just wrapped up doing annual reviews for my team at work and that surely deserves a treat.  My team is great, but the review process and paperwork leave much to be desired.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with my time off.  Last week I spent my day off removing some plants, relocating some others, and planting a few new ones for good measure.  My arms are still sore.  I think maybe I’ll find something that doesn’t involve quite so much digging this week. 

The weather has been beautiful here these past few days, with blue skies and short-sleeve temperatures.  Maybe that’s a signal that I should make sure the automatic sprinklers are working and ready to be turned back on.  I’d hate for my new plants to wither away if there is no rain on the horizon.

Regardless of whatever else I decide to do, I definitely 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.


Prompt:   You’re fired!

Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:   

headache            demon         prefab              corporation

automatons        fire               blush                prior

ballistics             cunning        abandon           contradiction

identical             clear             daydream         judgement

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!
