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.

Writing Prompt Friday (in the belly)

WPF

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Well, it’s January 17, and my Christmas tree is still up. The cat still keeps trying to climb it. The holiday storage bins are scattered about the home. The cat is unhappy about this state of clutter. Ice hugs my doorstep. The cat doesn’t care because she lives her life indoors, safe and snug. Snow blankets my husband’s car because I park under covered parking like the snowflake I am. (I’m okay with this; so is the husband; I love him; how many semicolons are too many?)

None of this has anything to do with this week’s prompt, but I hope you enjoy it anyway…

I work in the stomach of a teenage boy.

P.S. Yes, I’m taking the tree down this weekend.

Writing Prompt Friday (ghosts)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Christmas is next week. To give you an idea of how much I love this holiday, I hereby happily admit that I once had my (plastic) Christmas tree up in August, just in time for school to start here in the U.S.

Presents are nice. Presents are lovely. And I’m married to the world’s most thoughtful gift giver. But what I love most, and this may sound cliche, is that so many people are just a little bit nicer to each other. A bit more forgiving. A bit more likely to let you merge into traffic without shining their vehicle’s high beams into your brain.

Of course, there are those who are jerks or plain evil all year round. But otherwise, this time of year brings out the best in others. And I love that.

I just realized that I need to stop posting on my blog and get ready for my last 1-on-1 of the year with my boss.

So, on to this week’s prompt…

The three ghosts of Christmas discuss your progress this year. What do they say?

Writing Prompt Friday (Bridge)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayLast Friday was my husband’s birthday. (Yay!) As the birthday boy requested, we went to the local casino buffet…only to discover it was closed for remodel. (Boooooooooooooo!) So I stuffed him full of tacos and cocktails. (Yay!) I stuck to soda because I was driving. (Yay for safety.)

Really, it was an emotional roller coaster.

On to this week’s prompt…

What lives under here? And how did that come to be?

Writing Prompt Friday (freedom)

WPF_DopplegangerHello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Today is America’s Fourth of July. Independence Day. A day meant to celebrate our nation’s declaration of freedom as a nation. As a rule, I don’t get political on my blog. And I don’t intend to start. But I also think freedom is more than a matter of politics or human rights.

Freedom is complicated, multidimensional and personal. So this week, I offer the following prompt.

Describe freedom.

Bonus points for describing what it means specifically and personally to you.
