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

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. Hey…wow…is it August already? When did that happen? Oooops. Looking back over the years I’ve been blogging here on Rubber Ducky Copywriter, I wish I wish I could say this is the first time that time got away from me. Hopefully, you’re doing well and staying safe and finding the right indoor/outdoor balance for you these days. Personally, I’m going feral. My social skills are questionable, but my personal hygiene skills are sharp as ever, much to the appreciation of my husband and cat. In case you haven’t noticed, this is where I ramble on until my caffeine kicks in because I’ve been waking up at 3:00 a.m. for the past several days and have given up all hope of ever getting a good night’s sleep, ever.

Yup, waiting on that sweet, sweet caffeine.

So, headlines these days are scary. For this week’s prompt, here’s one that begs (please please please please please) you to write the story for it.

Breaking News: Mermaid Caught in Fishing Net Refuses to Give Fishermen Any Slack

A-a-a-a-a-a-nd…go!

Stay safe, stay healthy.

Yours,
Rubber Ducky

P.S. If you notice changes to this post it’s because I keep having to edit and fix my mistakes. Because I need more caffeine. Good times. On to Cup #3.

P.P.S. It occurs to me that someone may think the above headline was pulled from real headlines. It wasn’t. I made it up. Not sure why I should clarify this since mermaids don’t exist, but I’d rather be honest than assume y’all know what I mean.

P.P.P.S. I just realized the Featured Image and the image at the top of the post don’t match. Am too lazy to change either. Enjoy this double-ducky day. 🙂

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

Welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. I don’t have a funny story in me today, so I’ll start this post with a quote:

“Life is sometimes hard. Things go wrong, in life and in love and in business and in friendship and in health and in all other ways that life can go wrong. And when things get tough, this is what you should do. Make good art.”
― Neil Gaiman, Make Good Art (not a paid link)

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

Write a story within a story.
