Happy “National Color Day”–a day that focuses on the impact color has on each of us. Nature seems to be a big fan of this day, from the beautiful leaves falling from the trees to the colorful pots of chrysanthemums for sale at the local garden stores.
My yard is getting into the swing of things with sunny yellow lemons and a range of colorful late blooming roses, though with the puppy around, things are predominately dirty (sometimes muddy) brown.
It won’t be long before the fall colors transition in to the red and green of December. I noticed one of my neighbors putting up their holiday lights just last week. Talk about an early bird! For now, I’ll just concentrate on enjoying all of the fall colors (and attempting to keep the dirt in the yard instead of the house).
The ToDo list for this weekend is just packed, but somewhere along the line I’ll be giving this week’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 colorful adventure
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
fabric pale warm lights
guidebook twin cynic pastoral
bunny balance abstract leather
gunk orchard ammonia twelve
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!
