Welcome to the end of another week. For some it’s time to send the kids back to school (already?) for others it’s time to head off on vacation or to finally start tackling some of those projects that have been on the ToDo list since January.
Here at the Writing Castle, it has been time to introduce the puppy to the outside world, now that she has had her vaccinations and is safe to roam about (sort of). So far it has been a challenging experience: she thinks the leash is a new chew toy and the few dogs she has met on our walks have puzzled her with their aggressiveness, when all she wants to do is say “hi” and play.
I’m sure we’ll get the hang of things, though maybe not today.
There are a lot of tasks on my ToDo list besides a walk in the park–like the Day Job–but somewhere along the way I plan to give 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: Meeting someone new
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
courageous bribery pearl fiasco
poet feature flush cat
charisma phase gargoyle hobby
stage feast allotment blackmail
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!
