Writing Prompt Friday

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt FridayHello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I recently went for a walk in a park that was converted into a park from an 1850s homestead and military outpost. And it still has many of the original buildings. Truly lovely and thought provoking.

Perfect grounds (pun intended) for a new photo prompt…

Bonus points for incorporating the gas station in the background.

Enjoy!

Writing Prompt Friday (Doppelgänger)

WPF_Doppleganger

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 (cabbages)

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Last week, I was cabbaged. At work. It was pure retaliation; after all, I started it. And I regret nothing.

Hang on; let me clarify.

To cabbage someone is to gift them with a cabbage against their will. Hide the cabbage in their belongings, place it lovingly on their desk, mail it to them in the post, whatever transfers ownership of said cabbage (or as many cabbages as you want) to the other person.

I got this prank from, where else, YouTube. Specifically, the BBC game show Would I Lie to You, this one with James Acaster’s archenemy. (It’s hilarious. Bookmark it to watch on bad days.)

Our office cabbage is still making the rounds. I’ve gifted it to our newbie. This poor cabbage now two weeks old and still hanging strong. Not bad for a $1.45 investment.

Writing Prompt Friday (Love Story)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! It’s been a four-day work week, but it’s also been so busy it’s felt like a ten-day work week. These are the types of weeks that make the brain work fast and furious. So, of course, it wanders from time to time to take a break.

This week’s writing prompt is brought to you by one of those brain wanderings… Continue reading

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! (I really enjoy doing this series; I hope you’re having fun with it, too.)

Last week I finished a book about demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, and in that book, they explained that the first stage of a demon infestation includes sounds of barking, scratching, knocks and thumps, and that it also includes foul-smelling odors. For several days before reading about that, I’d been hearing barking, scratching, knocks and thumps, and smelling a foul odor in one particular spot in my home.

For a hot moment, I was concerned because I’m a writer with an active imagination and I’d been having a crappy week so why not think there’s a demon in my home? Maybe it could do something about the hornet’s next by the door.

Turns out my upstairs neighbor got a puppy, and I needed to take out the trash. Crisis averted.

Now, on to this week’s writing prompt… Continue reading
