Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Happy Friday!  For those in the U.S., this is the start of a long holiday weekend (for most).  Somehow, celebrating the country’s independence this year is  somewhat bittersweet with the constant barrage of attacks on democracy and basic freedoms that have been going on.  The holiday is a good reminder to not take anything for granted.

On a happier note, the puppy, who is growing by leaps and bounds, is currently asleep and looking her adorable best–curled up like a little chocolate croissant with one ear flipped inside out.  Later she’ll be back to racing around the yard like she has a booster-rocket strapped to her back, but for now, all is peaceful.

Taking a nap sounds like a great idea — maybe I’ll join her once my work is done. Fortunately, I have the day off work today, so napping is definitely on the schedule.  Working in the yard is also on the schedule today, but first I’ll be 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:   Let’s celebrate!

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

nightfall             boardroom           zipper                  drama

horses                confidential          blended               eating

massive              corduroy              chapter                 thumb

guidebook         flirtation               complicated         art

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!
