Writing Prompt Friday (what if)

writingpromptfridaycoffee

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I love changes in seasons, especially if that season is fall or winter. Those are my favorites. Fall and winter signal the holidays, which are my annual Olympic-esque seasons of joy and activity. And I finally know what to wear everyday: layers. Comfy, boofy, soft layers. That I can curl up under my desk for a nap during lunch and passers by can’t recognize me…except for my nameplate. Clearly this plan has a flaw.

Now, on to this week’s prompt…

What if you were kidnapped by alien clowns on your way to the dry cleaners?

Writing Prompt Friday (Monday edition)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! As you may or may not have noticed, this writing prompt is a few days late. I wasn’t feeling well Friday and experience has taught me to stay offline when I’m not feeling well because I’ll Google my symptoms ‘just for fun’ or ‘just out of curiosity’ and diagnosis myself with alien swine flue or rabid vampiric dinosauric teleportation syndrome or some other ridiculous nonsense.

So, better late than totally skipped, here’s your latest writing prompt. Enjoy!

“And that’s when I knew it was time.”

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! This week’s prompt is inspired by a traffic jam that left me sitting in my vehicle with time to spend contemplating the mysteries of life. After deciding that I couldn’t solve the mysteries of life, I watched nearby birds play in the air currents and let my imagine wander to think about all the things I could have been doing if I wasn’t stuck behind another vehicle.

This is why we use the facilities before we hit the road.

On to this week’s writing prompt. Enjoy! Continue reading

Writing Prompt Friday (public speaking)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Most people are terrified of public speaking. And I empathize; I used to be scared witless. Sometimes you’re still going to be put on the spot though. I recently participated in a presentation on presentation skills. Yes, you read that correctly. Not sure any presentation can ever be more meta.

It got me thinking. Hence, this week’s writing prompt… Continue reading

100 Projects to Recenter

Evil Plans LOL Cat

Life happens. Constantly. We’ve all gone through those phases in which work overwhelms us and so does family and so do these commitments and so does this and so does that. The list never ends.

As I covered in my previous post, this year has been especially, well, full. I lost track of my inner duckyness. I was getting by and handling business, but I wasn’t having a whole lot of fun. Okay, no fun. I was having zero fun. And it was exhausting.

This kind of life creeps up on you. Before you know it, you can lose track of all your hobbies and outlets that make you your awesome self.

A friend of mine recently went through the same lack of joy. And she had a great idea, which I’m sharing with anyone whom I think could use a recenter.

She calls it the “100 Project.”
