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. 🙂

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

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I have now completed my first week of working from home. Hubs, who’s also working from home (when he can), is an excellent officemate.

Then there’s my cat Henwen.

Adorable? Yes. Sweet? Yes. Loving? Yes. Quiet? Um, no.

But so adorable, even when she sings me the song of her people.

As the week has worn on, she’s calmed down, but still drops in at lunch to let me know she’s in charge and has a wide vocal range.

But again, so adorable.

I wonder if this is how Husband sees me…

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

A thriving farm. A lost stranger. Three cursed bananas.

Writing Prompt Friday (alternate)

WPF_SnowDucky

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Well, for Christmas, I found and set out a mechanical cat that wears a holiday scarf, and that wiggles and meows to “Jingle Bells” when I squeeze its paw. And it meows with gusto. Loudly.

For some reason, it started wiggling and meowing without its paw being touched in any way by anything. At random hours of the day and night.

Husband took its battery out.

It stopped.

Then my Mickey Mouse Tsum Tsum toy started doing the same thing.

I’m a little creeped out.

Now on to this week’s writing prompt…

Write an alternate ending to the end of your day.

No limit on length.
