Rubber Ducky Copywriter: Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. Today is the Friday before a 3-day weekend here in the U.S. In unrelated news, I ate cookies and milk for lunch so I can get off work earlier. Feeling like an adult.

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

What if the sun suddenly fell from the sky?

Until next week, enjoy your cookies. Or pie. Or veggies; those are good, too. Whatever your favorite treat, stay safe and healthy.

Yours, Ducky

writing prompt friday: birdtalk

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday. So I accidentally took up backyard birding. The hobby of attracting, watching and identifying birds in one’s own backyard. I began because I wanted to entertain our cat Henwen. (She’s indoors only; no eating them.) Turns out, I end up watching the birds more than she does. And my husband likes watching the squirrels the come steal the seed.

One thing I’ve noticed is that there are serious bird politics going on at the feeder. Lots of chirping and shoving for prime spots (even though all spots are the same). And then there are the hummingbirds, who feed at a different feeder on the other side of the yard. Watching these birds is rather like watching an avian version of West Side Story, only without the romance.

Which brings us to this week’s writing prompt.

Like people who talk at the water cooler, write the dialogue of a conversation happening at the bird feeder.

Stay safe, stay healthy.

Yours, Ducky

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayThis week is brought to you by enough coffee to power my SUV and a new batch of basic, No. 2 pencils. Not sure which I love more; both smell like hope and humanity, and both bring me joy and creativity. Then again, I also really love my SUV.

Enjoy this week’s prompt while I fix myself a third cup of coffee.

Writing Prompt Friday (forgetting)

Writing Prompt Friday Rubber Ducky Copywriter

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayHurricane Dorian is heading for Florida. All of Florida. And while I usually take this text block to be personal or witty (or try to), right now I just want to say this: Be careful. To everyone who’s getting ready for this storm, be careful. I grew up with hurricanes; they’re terrifying. Be careful out there. And good luck. My thoughts are with you.

This week’s writing prompt…

There was nothing unforgettable about her, but I couldn’t forget if I spent my life trying.

Writing Prompt Friday (Monday edition)

RubberDuckyWPF_Sticky

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.”
