Writing Prompt Friday

Welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I hope you’re enjoying these as much as I am, because lemme tell ya, it’s a lot of fun to turn the random thoughts in my head into something that’s useful instead of verbalizing them out loud and watching my husband facepalm himself wondering what on earth he got himself into. Although…to be honest…that’s fun too. Kind of a sport, really.

Alrighty, this week’s prompt. Continue reading

It’s a snowy, frosty time here in Seattle. A perfect time to start a series here on Rubber Ducky Copywriter.

Welcome to my first Writing Prompt Friday.

This kind of life creeps up on you. Before you know it, you can lose track of all your hobbies and outlets that make you your awesome self.

A friend of mine recently went through the same lack of joy. And she had a great idea, which I’m sharing with anyone whom I think could use a recenter.

She calls it the “100 Project.”

New year, new direction

Dobby

Master has given Ducky a sock.

Rather than wait for a specific date to roll around, I’ve found that just getting started on making a change when the inspiration hits is more effective and longer lasting. I’ve made them before, but they didn’t stick; as usual.

This year however, I’m being laid off.

Why is this happening?

Simple. The company is reorganizing. My position, and the positions of everyone else on my team here in Seattle, are being moved to the company’s headquarters on the other side of the country.

So, yeah…change is being forced upon me.
