Writing Prompt Friday (bring it back)

writingpromptfridaycoffee

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! The world has hit me hard in the morning coffee today. First, I learned that my secret source of pumpkin spice latte might (probably) be selling expired syrup, which means that I shouldn’t be drinking any more of it until pumpkin spice lattes are re-relaunched later this year. Second, my favorite brew-it-at-home coffee has been discontinued and sold out; I’m down to a bag and a half left.

Dear coffee company customer service, when you tell me you’ve discontinued my favorite coffee in the world, don’t include a $#%!ing smiley face to the end of your message. That does not soften the blow.

And now, on to this week’s writing prompt…

Write a letter imploring the universe to bring back your favorite childhood toy.

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Well, for Christmas, I found and set out a mechanical cat that wears a holiday scarf, and that wiggles and meows to “Jingle Bells” when I squeeze its paw. And it meows with gusto. Loudly.

For some reason, it started wiggling and meowing without its paw being touched in any way by anything. At random hours of the day and night.

Husband took its battery out.

It stopped.

Then my Mickey Mouse Tsum Tsum toy started doing the same thing.

I’m a little creeped out.

Now on to this week’s writing prompt…

Write an alternate ending to the end of your day.

No limit on length.

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayThis week is brought to you by enough coffee to power my SUV and a new batch of basic, No. 2 pencils. Not sure which I love more; both smell like hope and humanity, and both bring me joy and creativity. Then again, I also really love my SUV.

Enjoy this week’s prompt while I fix myself a third cup of coffee.

Writing Prompt Friday (freedom)

WPF_DopplegangerHello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Today is America’s Fourth of July. Independence Day. A day meant to celebrate our nation’s declaration of freedom as a nation. As a rule, I don’t get political on my blog. And I don’t intend to start. But I also think freedom is more than a matter of politics or human rights.

Freedom is complicated, multidimensional and personal. So this week, I offer the following prompt.

Describe freedom.

Bonus points for describing what it means specifically and personally to you.

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! (I really enjoy doing this series; I hope you’re having fun with it, too.)

Last week I finished a book about demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, and in that book, they explained that the first stage of a demon infestation includes sounds of barking, scratching, knocks and thumps, and that it also includes foul-smelling odors. For several days before reading about that, I’d been hearing barking, scratching, knocks and thumps, and smelling a foul odor in one particular spot in my home.

For a hot moment, I was concerned because I’m a writer with an active imagination and I’d been having a crappy week so why not think there’s a demon in my home? Maybe it could do something about the hornet’s next by the door.

Turns out my upstairs neighbor got a puppy, and I needed to take out the trash. Crisis averted.

Now, on to this week’s writing prompt… Continue reading
