Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint

Happy Friday everyone.   I hope those who celebrated Thanksgiving last week had a wonderful time with good friends and good food, and no side-dish of trauma. 

With November having come to a close, it’s time for all of those who were participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) to take a breath and look at all you managed to accomplish in thirty days.  I hope your writing was successful, however you choose to define success, and that you’ll be inspired to keep writing.

Now that we’ve reached December it seems like the days are just flying by.  I’m slowly putting out some of my holiday decorations–at least the ones that are puppy-resident–though it still feels like it must be far too early (despite what the calendar might say).  

The weather is beautiful here right now, though still a bit soggy from yesterday’s rain storm.  Things should be dried out just in time for the next storm tomorrow.  Not that I’m complaining.  We definitely need the rain; it’s the muddy little doggy-footprints I could do without.  

Today is a busy work day, 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:  “The weather outside is frightful . . .” 

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

          habit             negligee            judge                   wink

          minute          throne              masterpiece         yoga

          leopard         stair                  publicity              green 

          cotton            reception         pipe                      appetizer

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!
