I don’t know anyone who thinks they’re “normal.” Which makes sense because we all know our own flaws better than anyone else, so we disqualify ourselves from being “normal” faster than anyone else will.
Or maybe I hang out with the wrong people? What is normal, anyway?
writing prompt: Define normal.
Finish the following story. Bonus points if the barista makes it out alive and non-lupine.
“Fuck my life!”
The barista was having a meltdown, and I was the one taking the heat. At five in the morning. On my way to move to a new city, a new life, a new identity. And there I stood, in the middle of nowhere, being yelled at by a barista, and a hung over one by the looks of it.
All because I didn’t want foam on my latte. Pardon me, I can’t digest that foam.
People often thing that werewolves only show their furry sides during a full moon. Those people are wrong. This werewolf was ready to fluff and bare teeth over being yelled at for no damn good reason.
The silence between us was as solid as the counter that separated us.
Time stretched. And so did my muzzle.
Yes, I realize it’s not Friday and therefore not Writing Prompt Friday but I’m trying to stick to my one-post-a-month goal and therefore ignoring my own rules so I can make my own deadline and feel some small spark of success on maintaining my blog. Yay me!
One of my goals for this year is to refresh this blog. But today I cleaned my kitchen and I’m calling it a day. Blog refresh some other day.
Now, on to the prompt…
Write the origin story of a not-so-gently used toy you see on eBay.
Have a prompt to share? Add to the comments, too.
Stay safe, Ducky
Writing is hard. Staying creative during a pandemic and all of the stress (for everyone), well, I figure I’m doing pretty good if I get one prompt up a month. If you’re looking for some weekend plans, here’s a new one.
Write the life story of a fly.
Until next time, stay safe and well. Ducky.
Had a grand plan to start the new year on a more cheerful, optimistic note. But then things happened and I’m not even going to fake it. I won’t rehash or put my opinions out there to spark conversation or anything like that.
But I can contribute a writing prompt.
Something to help you keep writing.
Because we need creativity.
We need to make art.
We need to add something good to the world around us.
So, take this writing prompt and either make art with it or reject it in favor of something you want to write instead.
Just put words to paper.
Write a Shakespearean play starring Godzilla.
Stay safe, Ducky
