Writing Prompt Friday (leaf)

Rubber Ducky Copywriter - Writing Prompt Friday

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayThis week has featured a broken hot water heater, two floods in my laundry room, a sick husband and an angry cat who doesn’t like when giant dryers turn her carpeted floors into moving obstacle courses.

On the bright side, this has all led to finally getting that pesky stain out of that one spot in the carpet. So that’s something good. Yay!

On this this week’s writing prompt…

Writing Prompt Friday (letter)

RDCW_WPF_Bridge

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayIt’s been a week of personal and professional surprises (mostly good; all others cleaned up with superior carpet cleaner and attributed to the cat).

Sounds like a writing prompt to me.

You get an anonymous letter in the mail that begins, “You don’t have to remember me, but I remember you.”

Finish writing the letter.

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.”

Writing Prompt Friday (ficus edition)

WPF Princess Ducky

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt FridayAs much as I’d like to give a preamble and lead-in to this week’s writing prompt, I don’t want to bias your perspective because these prompts are about your imagination and your story. Let’s just say, I’ve been chanting this phrase regularly these past few days.

Enjoy!

I am one with the ficus.
