WritingPromptFriday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Week 2 of working from home is in the books. Am more productive at home than in the office. Have learned how to video conference. Have discovered that there’s a seagull who loves to hang out with the giant flock of crows that run our neighborhood skies. Have named him Johnathan.

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

Dang. I ate the car.

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayI 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.

Here’s why.

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.

Writing Prompt Friday: munch

writingpromptfridaycoffee

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I can usually think of fun things to say in these intros when I’m not sitting down to write one. Like now. Drawing a blank here. How about I just wish you a lovely weekend? May your favorite morning beverage be perfect. May your friends and family either be kind or bothering someone else. And may the words flow effortlessly from your pen to the blank page for as long as you need.

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

What if Little Red Riding Hood ate the Wolf’s grandmother instead?

In case you’re not familiar with the tale, read more about it here. Personally, I think the Big Bad Wolf should have eaten Red Riding Hood in the forest when he had the chance, but whatever. It’s his food.

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.

Writing Prompt Friday (alternate)

WPF_SnowDucky

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.
