Happy “National Soft Ice Cream Day“–the perfect thing to celebrate on a warm summer day. Growing up, our family vacation road trips always included a stop at Fosters Freeze or whatever similar establishment we passed along the way. I can almost taste one of those soft-serve cones dipped in rich dark chocolate.
Sounds like a road trip is in order!
Unfortunately, road-tripping will have to wait at least until after the work day is done. I have a full slate of meetings and a long ToDo list, so I’ll definitely be in the mood for an ice cream treat later.
Ice cream notwithstanding, somewhere along the way I plan to give 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: A special treat
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
pilot hideaway peppermint coconut
celebration floral almond houseguest
philosophy extravagant song neon
favor geometrical guilty gambler
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!
