Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Is it Friday again?  Seems like the week just started.  Whether your week went by quickly or slowly, I hope it was a good one.

We’ve been having some beautiful summer weather here the last few days — not too hot, not to cold, and no wild-fire smoke in sight.  The “not too hot” part is especially good since I’m in the midst of trying to repair a sprinkler leak and don’t want the plants in the yard dying of thirst while the water is turned off.

According to the calendar, today is “National Hammock Day“, which sounds like a great thing to celebrate.  Now if only I had some sturdy trees and a hammock to string between them, I’d be all set.  Maybe I’ll celebrate “National Mango Day” instead, since I do have a ripe mango.

Did you know that one mango contains almost two and a half times more vitamin C than an orange? Mangoes are also high in vitamins A, B-6 and K, antioxidants, potassium and dietary fiber.

Somewhere in between work, sprinkler repair, puppy wrangling, and mango eating, 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:   Is that edible?

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

drowsy         glass               blinking        bluff

morsel          blended         potential       deathly

snail             gloves             answer          believer

sick               revolt             field              decadent

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!
