Hello, and welcome back. Yes, it’s been a while. Sorry ’bout that. Feeling rather overwhelmed to do too much outside of immediate needs. I’m sure you know what I mean. But I want to keep this up in case anything here prompts you to write something you love or that helps you find meaning or even take a timeout from reality and find some happy. Writing for the sake of writing is fun.
So, in that spirit, let’s move to a few writing prompts (because catching up is catching up… so the lolcat stops judging me).
Pick a prompt, any prompt.
Write the life story of a bookmark.
“There can be only _________.”
Start with “This twilight, the sun decided to linger a little longer.” End with “And the world went to sleep.“
Write a 500-word story in which you use the phrase “My left sock ran away” six times.
“Feel how I feel, think how I think, just don’t _________.”
As always, feel free to share your writing in the comments. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
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
Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Like many people these days, I’m feeling a little fried in the head. So fried, I’m taking today off because I can’t even come up with a decent writing prompt for you; that’s how fried I am.
With that, here’s something writing-prompty (new phrase; you’re welcome English language) that you can do.
Write your own writing prompt and a piece of writing that goes with it.
Submit either or both in the comments below. Or just write because that’s the whole point of these prompts anyway, whether you share them or not.
Stay safe and healthy, The Ducky
Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I had a conversation with my cat Henwen this week. Turns out, I need to feed her every minute of every day, give her cuddles whenever she wants, make her bed and play with her whenever she wants. Part of me wants to have the same conversation with my husband, but since Henwen isn’t getting everything she wants, I doubt I will either. Nice thought, though.
And now, this week’s writing prompt…
You find yourself for sale on eBay. Also, you’re a doll.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! It’s spring. Easter’s around the corner. We finally made it through March. I’m out of Twinkies, but I still have Oreos. I’ve become a wiz at conference calls. The cat’s bored with us. And I thought I’d be caught up on my laundry by now, but no; turns out I really dislike doing laundry.
I sit next to a big window all day and have been watching things bloom, which is lovely. And it brings us to this week’s writing prompt…
Write about the life of a leaf, from the leaf’s perspective.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
