Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I live just outside Seattle. I work just inside Seattle. Our headlines are dominated by a single topic these days, and I’m sure you can guess what that is. And then there’s politics, which gives few people warm, fuzzy feelings.
I’m fine; everyone here is fine.
Now, I could go on about either of these topics. But I won’t.
One of my most important intentions for this blog is to create a place on the internet where people can come without hearing about so much bad stuff. What’s going on in the world right now is scary. Anxiety-triggering for many. Exhausting for many. Rubber Ducky Copywriter is a fun, safe, happy, inspiring, informative place. No harsh news. No dooms day. No politics. No hate. No hate for the haters. None of that.
Just a safe, inspiring, creative environment where you can take a deep breath.
My promises to you
You are welcome here no matter your political preferences, even if you don’t have any.
You can come here without being afraid of more horrible news.
(The only exception to this is if something horrible happens in my immediate world or to my family, and I have to take an unplanned hiatus.)
Creating this type of environment (even a small one) is important to me. I get frustrated when I visit a site I think is a nice, safe break and what do I see but more stories that make me feel sad or overwhelmed.
Honestly, I’m not even sure I’m making sense right now. I hope you understand what I’m saying and why I feel the need to say it. There just needs to be a place where we (myself included) can take break from everything coming at us, and I want you to know that this blog is one of those places.
And now, on to this week’s writing prompt…
Log your week as if you’re the captain on Star Trek.

Yes, I agree—I try to keep mine funny and an escape from politics and other nasty stuff. I like to think of it as a refuge—a weird little refuge🤣
I’ve read your “weird little refuge.” And I love every post. You have a terrific sense of humor.
Thank you so much!!
