Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Happy Friday and congratulations for making it through another week!  My week has passed in a blur of meetings, webinars, and endless phone calls.  I didn’t even realize it was Friday until I’d made it halfway through the day.  I definitely need a weekend!

For those of you who are participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), I hope your writing has been successful so far and you get your 1,6667 words for the day (more or less) on the page before the day is out.

The weather is beautiful here, though a bit chilly.  Should be perfect weather for me to do some fall cleanup and other assorted outdoor tasks this weekend.  I already made a start on putting up the outdoor holiday lights last weekend, but I need to get the rest up and then do some plant-trimming and mulching.

The fun never ends!

I may have gotten a late start today, but whatever else I manage to get done (or not) 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:  Company’s coming! 

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

          uncle                dove              whale               decadence

          cunning           poison           casino               greed

          faith                 bottle             artificial          bridge

          vibrator           axe                 candy              moaning

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!
