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
So I went on vacation for a couple of weeks. Strange mix of magical, empowering, weird and stressful. More so than most vacations. Sometimes you just need to, though, you know? Kinda like writing. I need to put this out there today. Hopefully, it helps you put words to page.
Not all trap doors lead to dark places.
Stay safe, stay healthy.
Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. I live outside Seattle, which like most cities on the American West Coast, has been struggling. Fires. Protests. Worst air quality ever, which has made me pretty sick.
I’m fortunate. And grateful. Very grateful. We’re okay. But it leads into this week’s writing prompt, which I think everyone could use right now.
Write the happiest story you can imagine.
Make it at least 500 words.
Any topic. Any characters. Any theme. Whatever you want. But just when you think your story can’t get happier, add something to make it happier.
For example, maybe a zombie princess mermaid fairy finally wins the Miss Universe contest… AND takes home a Nobel Prize for saving unicorns from extinction. Okay, I kinda want to write that one. And I’ll throw in some pandas eating ice cream while wearing bunny rabbit costumes.
You get the idea. Whatever the word “happy” means to you right now, put it on paper. Then add some more happy.
Until next time, Ducky
