My Space!

Today’s writing prompt:

Get out of my space!

Just venting my frustration but I’m sure the offender will end up as a character somewhere down the line :)

 

Ring! Ring!

Today’s writing prompt:

Off the hook.

Yesterday after three nuisance telemarketing calls to my landline, despite being on the do-not-call register, I put the phone down on my desk mid-sentence and walked away. I did intend to put it back after a an hour or so but completely forgot!

Last week, a friend who suffers from emphysema called and hesitated before responding to my somewhat strained ‘hello’. Fortunately, I realised just in time who it was and he didn’t cop an ear-full!

I love calls from friends, subscribers and anyone interested in Positive Words magazine but my blood boils when I’m constantly disturbed by someone who wants to sell me something . . . particularly when I’m struggling to get my NaNoWriMo total up to the target.

Waffle

Today’s writing prompt:

Waffle!

Right now my NaNoWriMo is waffling on and on and on . . . but I’m sure there will be some salvageable parts and at least it’s keeping my total within reach of the target :)

Lucky numbers

Today’s writing prompt:

Lucky number . . .

Do you have a lucky number?

Today my lucky number is the number of words I’m adding to my NaNoWriMo story :)

I’m a little behind but today’s total is growing steadily . . .

Colour Schemes

Today’s writing prompt:

Changing the d├ęcor.

Just re-read my NaNoWriMo, and found the furniture layout in one scene different to another. Oops!

At least there’s no heavy lugging in changing it back :)

Old flames

Today’s writing prompt:

Old flames.

While outside watering before dark {it’s very dry here already :( } I had an idea and decided to introduce an old flame into my NaNoWriMo story.

Not sure what will come of it but time will tell :)

Tortoise or Hare?

Today’s writing prompt:

Are you a tortoise or a hare?

I think I’m more of a tortoise but in this year’s NaNoWriMo I’ve made a couple of hare-like dashes :)

As long as we get there in the end!
