Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Happy Fall!  It doesn’t quite feel like it is time for Summer to come to and end already–especially with today’s sunny skies–but the stores have their Halloween displays out; the coffee shops have pumpkin lattes back on the menu; and I’m starting to see ads with “holiday gift ideas” so time is definitely passing.

Here at the Writing Castle, where I’m trying to balance an online meeting with a barking puppy, time seems to be dragging endlessly.  Apparently, the puppy is not in favor of endless work calls.

I second that.

Naturally, the minute I hung up the call, she decided it was time for a nap.  Before she springs back into action, I’m going to try to fit in a few minutes 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:  What’s that noise?

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

crown            drill              blister                glacial

bigwig           beehive       flammable         chair

helmet           wall             blame                moaning

wreckage       brother       admission          weak 

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!
