Welcome to another Friday! For those who had Monday off in observance of Independence Day, I hope you enjoyed your short-work week. I had both Monday and Friday off, so this week just flew by.
Currently, summer is in full swing here and yesterday I filled up the doggie-wading pool for the puppy, who instantly jumped in and did her best to splash out all of the water.
She had a grand time.
I had less of grand time when she then ran through the dirt and in through the house, but it was nothing that a mop and a towel couldn’t take care of. She is now busily dropping balls into the water and batting them around.
Simple pleasures are the best.
For me, today’s simple pleasures will include diving into the latest library book that finally appeared in my queue after weeks of waiting and making a big pitcher of lemonade now that the lemon tree has some ripe fruit on it. Regardless of whatever else I decide to do (or not to do), 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: Summer fun!
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
endless beekeeper terrific door
glider south backyard rattle
sweat gate bet reptile
pleasant coconut officer rum
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!
