Happy “National Water Balloon Day“–obviously something created by folks looking for a way to cool off. No water balloons here, but I do have a kiddie wading pool full of water that the puppy is enjoying splashing around in.
The weather here has cooled in recent days and is beautiful right now–perfect for working in the yard, walking the dog, and just enjoying the garden that has definitely appreciated the little bit of rain we got the other day. Not enough to put out the various areas that are on fire, but at least it was a start.
Today will be a full work day for me, balancing a host of meetings while puppy wrangling (can you hear the barking from there?). Somewhere along the way I’ll be giving today’s writing prompt and random words a try at some point.
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: Going on a family camping trip
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
visitor horseplay loop hickory
contest volcano advertisement dust
getaway chilly forgotten parade
apricot boundary elevation portal
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!
