Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Technically it’s still Friday in some time-zone, so this post is coming in just under the wire.

Today’s delay was caused by about a million ants that decided my kitchen was the place to be.  Counters.  Floor.  Stove.  You name it, they were all over it.  I can only thank my stars that I was foresightful enough to put my half of a leftover danish in the refrigerator the night before rather than leaving it in a bag on the counter.

On the plus side, the kitchen is now super clean and I didn’t need to resort to the use of toxic chemicals to get rid of the invaders.  Now I just hope they’ll stay gone.

Whether or not my kitchen is overrun again in the morning, I’m going to plan on starting things off with today’s writing prompt and random words.

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:   Unexpected visitors 

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

caterpillar        coastal            fighting            blame

tyrant               blaze               cradle               flutter

popular            horses             anyone             badge

crawl                fierce               fathead            expression

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!
