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

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 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.

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayHurricane Dorian is heading for Florida. All of Florida. And while I usually take this text block to be personal or witty (or try to), right now I just want to say this: Be careful. To everyone who’s getting ready for this storm, be careful. I grew up with hurricanes; they’re terrifying. Be careful out there. And good luck. My thoughts are with you.

This week’s writing prompt…

There was nothing unforgettable about her, but I couldn’t forget if I spent my life trying.

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! It’s goose season here in the Pacific Northwest. The office in which I work is a step away from a nature path that runs along a river. Geese love that setup. They also love nesting, swimming and chasing unsuspecting animal lovers who try to quietly walk past without disturbing them.

Geese chased. I ran. Coworkers laughed. I burned off some calories. No one was injured. Good times were had by all.

So that happened.

This episode of goosery, public exercise and general shenanigans has nothing to do with this week’s writing prompt, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Continue reading
