Welcome to the end of another work week. The days are just flying by, aren’t they? Or maybe it just seems that way to me because I have so many things left on my ToDo list and so little time left to check them all off this year.
Fortunately, I’ve managed to take care of a few important things like putting up the Christmas tree and at least some of the holiday decorations. There’s something about being able to look over at a big sparkly tree during endless work meetings that just makes everything a little brighter.
The puppy is thrilled by the tree too, though that is less of a feature. She finds the lights and garland fascinating and keeping her happy wagging tail away from the tree is likely to be an unachievable challenge.
For now though, all is well and the house has taken on a distinctly red/green hue.
This past week was full of off-again-on-again rainy days and the weekend is supposed to be more of the same. A perfect time to curl up with a cozy blanket and a warm, festive beverage and give 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 fire is so delightful . . .”
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
papa curiosity addictive strudel
river password counter fleece
freezing ocean nibble fluke
interpreter thoughts bourbon contest
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!
