This weeks prompt writing will be one with a twist. You know those horoscopes in newspapers? One of those will be your new prompt. Pick one randomly from a paper or a website and write a story <100 words about the kind of day that horoscope “predicts”.
The horoscope I chose was Cancer from NYPOST.com:
No matter how much work you have on your plate you will get through it all in record time. Your appetite for detail is remarkable, so get on with it and reward yourself at the end of the day with a night on the town.
Ah, the weekend after Thanksgiving! This year is extra special because Sunday begins Advent. So, today I woke up early, made a pot of coffee, and wrote out today’s agenda:
- 1. Take down autumn decorations
2. Do a deep clean of entire house
4. Rake leaves, clean front porch & back patio
5. Make Christmas gift list
7. Write Christmas newsletter
8. Make Christmas card list
9. Make Holiday baking list
11. Add Christmas events to calendar
12. Make Advent checklist
13. Make Christmas party checklist
Amazingly, at day’s end, all thirteen items were checked off!
Let the games begin! ¡Felicidades!
NOTE: Wish I could say that this write really happened. It didn’t.
“Happy Holidays” put me over the 100 limit, so I cheated and used the Spanish equivalent. : ) It’s amazing all the extra work that the holidays create. Totally worth it though.
