Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. Hey…wow…is it August already? When did that happen? Oooops. Looking back over the years I’ve been blogging here on Rubber Ducky Copywriter, I wish I wish I could say this is the first time that time got away from me. Hopefully, you’re doing well and staying safe and finding the right indoor/outdoor balance for you these days. Personally, I’m going feral. My social skills are questionable, but my personal hygiene skills are sharp as ever, much to the appreciation of my husband and cat. In case you haven’t noticed, this is where I ramble on until my caffeine kicks in because I’ve been waking up at 3:00 a.m. for the past several days and have given up all hope of ever getting a good night’s sleep, ever.
Yup, waiting on that sweet, sweet caffeine.
So, headlines these days are scary. For this week’s prompt, here’s one that begs (please please please please please) you to write the story for it.
Breaking News: Mermaid Caught in Fishing Net Refuses to Give Fishermen Any Slack
Stay safe, stay healthy.
P.S. If you notice changes to this post it’s because I keep having to edit and fix my mistakes. Because I need more caffeine. Good times. On to Cup #3.
P.P.S. It occurs to me that someone may think the above headline was pulled from real headlines. It wasn’t. I made it up. Not sure why I should clarify this since mermaids don’t exist, but I’d rather be honest than assume y’all know what I mean.
P.P.P.S. I just realized the Featured Image and the image at the top of the post don’t match. Am too lazy to change either. Enjoy this double-ducky day. 🙂
