This week’s prompts are at the bottom. Feel free to seize the prompts, twist them, form them, play with them as you will. All comers are welcome. The words below are just practice for me. I had a lot of fun writing them, and you know what I always say, “Practice makes perfect.”
When the alarm sounded, the first time at 4:00 a.m. “Kate Duran – Vermont’s Favourite Coffee Partner, at Radio WOW” was extolling the benefits of having your chipped windshield replaced by Baker Auto Glass Company. Audrey stuck her arm from beneath a pile of blankets and slapped the snooze button before she could learn that Baker Glass maintained their offices somewhere on Copthorne Way in Wallingford.
The second time, she got up and staggered to the bathroom. She peed and dropped her nightshirt on the floor. She splashed cold water on her face – it was bracing and helped her wake more fully. She brushed her teeth and pulled on a pair of jeans. Her heavy green socks didn’t smell too bad so, she pulled them on along with her boots and a flannel shirt before moving on to the kitchen where she started a pot of coffee, put two slices of thick-cut uncured bacon in the microwave, scrambled a couple of eggs and made toast.
Audrey studied the map of Star Lake as she ate breakfast. Her dad had marked it up and highlighted his super-secret fishing spot. He told her, “If yer gonna catch a lunker in Star Lake, this is where it’s gonna be.”
Audrey had her old 14-foot guide boat already loaded on her truck racks. She was ready to go. When her phone rang, Audrey knew it would be Violet. She was supposed to pick Violet up by…she looked at the 23 in 1 Tactical Watch on her wrist, bought for under $30.00 on Amazon.
Shit, she should be pulling into Violet’s driveway right about now. Those fish weren’t going to wait for them.
She pressed the “RCV” button, “Sorry, Vi, I’m running a little late. I’m on the way now. Be there in five.”
This week’s prompts are:
- selling jewellery out of his car
- a bunch of fives
- it’s just a game
You can start writing whenever you want, just write, get the words down – and have fun!
