writing prompt: origin

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Yes, I realize it’s not Friday and therefore not Writing Prompt Friday but I’m trying to stick to my one-post-a-month goal and therefore ignoring my own rules so I can make my own deadline and feel some small spark of success on maintaining my blog. Yay me!

One of my goals for this year is to refresh this blog. But today I cleaned my kitchen and I’m calling it a day. Blog refresh some other day.

Now, on to the prompt…

Write the origin story of a not-so-gently used toy you see on eBay.

Have a prompt to share? Add to the comments, too.

Stay safe, Ducky

writing prompt friday: fly

Writing is hard. Staying creative during a pandemic and all of the stress (for everyone), well, I figure I’m doing pretty good if I get one prompt up a month. If you’re looking for some weekend plans, here’s a new one.

Write the life story of a fly.

Until next time, stay safe and well. Ducky.

writing prompt friday: happy tale

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. I live outside Seattle, which like most cities on the American West Coast, has been struggling. Fires. Protests. Worst air quality ever, which has made me pretty sick.

I’m fortunate. And grateful. Very grateful. We’re okay. But it leads into this week’s writing prompt, which I think everyone could use right now.

Write the happiest story you can imagine.

Make it at least 500 words.

Any topic. Any characters. Any theme. Whatever you want. But just when you think your story can’t get happier, add something to make it happier.

For example, maybe a zombie princess mermaid fairy finally wins the Miss Universe contest… AND takes home a Nobel Prize for saving unicorns from extinction. Okay, I kinda want to write that one. And I’ll throw in some pandas eating ice cream while wearing bunny rabbit costumes.

You get the idea. Whatever the word “happy” means to you right now, put it on paper. Then add some more happy.

Until next time, Ducky

writing prompt: sun go boom

Rubber Ducky Copywriter: Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. Today is the Friday before a 3-day weekend here in the U.S. In unrelated news, I ate cookies and milk for lunch so I can get off work earlier. Feeling like an adult.

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

What if the sun suddenly fell from the sky?

Until next week, enjoy your cookies. Or pie. Or veggies; those are good, too. Whatever your favorite treat, stay safe and healthy.

Yours, Ducky

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I had a conversation with my cat Henwen this week. Turns out, I need to feed her every minute of every day, give her cuddles whenever she wants, make her bed and play with her whenever she wants. Part of me wants to have the same conversation with my husband, but since Henwen isn’t getting everything she wants, I doubt I will either. Nice thought, though.

And now, this week’s writing prompt…

You find yourself for sale on eBay. Also, you’re a doll.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Yours, Ducky
