This week is going to be a little different. Call it a Holiday twist for those celebrating Memorial Day...
Every Wednesday I write a story around a word. Sometimes they develop into ideas for future WIP, sometimes they are truly just wonderful distractions from my current work. Distractions can be good, it can allow you to return to your work fresh and open minded when you may have left it a bit bogged or confused.
Anyway, when I opened the slip of paper I saw: ASK ME
My husband sneakily did this so that he had a bonus entry of sorts. Well I waited for a moment, tapping my fingers on the keys, before he told me he had an idea. He knew the word he wanted me to use but he also had a twist.
Rather than write a normal entry he decided I should make it into a contest for you, my Royal Court. Next Wednesday I will write my own selection for the same word and post as usual. But on Monday, Memorial Day it is all about y'all...
So here is the word he has chosen for YOU!
In the comments write a quick scene, flash fiction, or dialogue inspired by the word.
The winner will be randomly selected by the Hat program (you all know I love it).
I will showcase a few of the entries here on the blog on Monday as well as the winner.
You must be a follower to enter!
