Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope your week is ending on a positive note.  The weather here is beautiful with just the right balance of sunshine and light breeze, and my case of COVID is over, so things are definitely ending on a positive note here.

Welcome to all of the new followers who have found this blog in recent weeks.  I hope you are enjoying the Writing Sprints and have been able to get some words on the page–whatever you may be writing.

My writing these past months has been focused primarily on white papers and articles for my day job, but I’m hoping there will be a lull soon so I can get back my various fiction projects.  Who knows what my characters have been getting up to in my absence.  One can only hope they’ve managed to untangle a plot problem or two.

Regardless what else I wind up writing today, I’m going to take at least a few minutes 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:   A change of scenery 

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

wreck               fragment                   hairless           hope

search              communication         appetite         glow

architect          flamethrower            burnt              enemy

hoof                 badger                       silver              friend

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!
