I don’t know anyone who thinks they’re “normal.” Which makes sense because we all know our own flaws better than anyone else, so we disqualify ourselves from being “normal” faster than anyone else will.
Or maybe I hang out with the wrong people? What is normal, anyway?
writing prompt: Define normal.
Finish the following story. Bonus points if the barista makes it out alive and non-lupine.
“Fuck my life!”
The barista was having a meltdown, and I was the one taking the heat. At five in the morning. On my way to move to a new city, a new life, a new identity. And there I stood, in the middle of nowhere, being yelled at by a barista, and a hung over one by the looks of it.
All because I didn’t want foam on my latte. Pardon me, I can’t digest that foam.
People often thing that werewolves only show their furry sides during a full moon. Those people are wrong. This werewolf was ready to fluff and bare teeth over being yelled at for no damn good reason.
The silence between us was as solid as the counter that separated us.
Time stretched. And so did my muzzle.
Writing is hard. Staying creative during a pandemic and all of the stress (for everyone), well, I figure I’m doing pretty good if I get one prompt up a month. If you’re looking for some weekend plans, here’s a new one.
Write the life story of a fly.
Until next time, stay safe and well. Ducky.
Had a grand plan to start the new year on a more cheerful, optimistic note. But then things happened and I’m not even going to fake it. I won’t rehash or put my opinions out there to spark conversation or anything like that.
But I can contribute a writing prompt.
Something to help you keep writing.
Because we need creativity.
We need to make art.
We need to add something good to the world around us.
So, take this writing prompt and either make art with it or reject it in favor of something you want to write instead.
Just put words to paper.
Write a Shakespearean play starring Godzilla.
Stay safe, Ducky
So I went on vacation for a couple of weeks. Strange mix of magical, empowering, weird and stressful. More so than most vacations. Sometimes you just need to, though, you know? Kinda like writing. I need to put this out there today. Hopefully, it helps you put words to page.
Not all trap doors lead to dark places.
Stay safe, stay healthy.
