writing prompt friday: dammit spock

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt FridayHello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. Quick update: Movers are coming tomorrow to haul heavy stuff. We’ve spent the past 2.5 weeks packing everything else. Cat’s confused. I stopped labeling boxes about 20 boxes ago. And Oreos go well with coffee for breakfast.

And now for this week’s prompt…

Captain Kirk and Spock are trapped in quarantine together.

One ate the other’s snacks.

Write the conversation.

Share your result below. Or keep it to yourself. I just hope this inspires you to write something fun.

Stay safe, Ducky

 

writing prompt: pillow

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. I type this sitting at my sparsely decorated home writing desk, surrounded by barren bookshelves. We’re moving. During a pandemic. Under an active stay-at-home order. Because we bought a house the same weekend life started turning upside down, approximately who-knows-time-anymore ago.

I forgot to label the last 9 boxes I packed. But I can still find the cat.

And now this week’s writing prompt…

End a 627-word short story with “And that’s when pillow hit back.”

Stay safe, Ducky

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Like many people these days, I’m feeling a little fried in the head. So fried, I’m taking today off because I can’t even come up with a decent writing prompt for you; that’s how fried I am.

With that, here’s something writing-prompty (new phrase; you’re welcome English language) that you can do.

Write your own writing prompt and a piece of writing that goes with it.

Submit either or both in the comments below. Or just write because that’s the whole point of these prompts anyway, whether you share them or not.

Stay safe and healthy, The Ducky

writing prompt friday: sale

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

writing prompt friday: leaf

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! It’s spring. Easter’s around the corner. We finally made it through March. I’m out of Twinkies, but I still have Oreos. I’ve become a wiz at conference calls. The cat’s bored with us. And I thought I’d be caught up on my laundry by now, but no; turns out I really dislike doing laundry.

I sit next to a big window all day and have been watching things bloom, which is lovely. And it brings us to this week’s writing prompt…

Write about the life of a leaf, from the leaf’s perspective.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Yours, Ducky
