Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprint (the Weekend Edition)

Happy Friday!  I hope your week was a good one, with a minimum of trauma and a maximum of positive moments.  Here at the Writing Castle, the skies are blue, the sun is shining, and the yard has finally managed to drain away last week’s rain so that the puppy can play fetch without turning into a muddy-mess.  Always a feature!

For those looking for something to celebrate, today is “National Chocolate Covered Anything” day.  It’s also “National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day”, but I don’t recommend combining the two.   Chocolate makes almost everything better, but probably not an ugly sweater 🙂

No ugly sweaters here, though there is definitely chocolate.  I have a busy work day ahead (as always), but before the day is out I’ll be enjoying some chocolate and giving 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:  “. . . since we’ve no place to go . . .” 

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

          trove              crazy         promise         recluse

          mailbox         roof            pledge           rooster

          pigeon            teeth          doorbell         season

          hair                 desk          whisker          enthusiasm

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!
