NOTE: I know today is Tuesday, not Friday. I’ve been locked out of my blog by some kind of SSL error for the past few days. And I wanted to make sure that every Friday would have a writing prompt. You’ll just get two this week, instead of one.
Whew. Glad THAT’S over.
I hope everyone had a great weekend, and that your week is off to an awesome start. I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day, too.
Let’s talk Star Wars Day for a bit. I said here that I hadn’t known about Star Wars Day until after it happened.
But there was something I forgot…
I’d read the Foxtrot comic in the Sunday paper, that happened to come out the same day as Star Wars Day (May 4th). And Foxtrot mentioned Star Wars Day, but I didn’t get it. A lot of the time, this comic strip mentions pop culture, video games, and other references regularly. So it went over my head.
But I DID know. I just forgot I did.
On another note, last Thursday was the American Idol results show. Another singer gone.
I don’t do this in print, but…
I’m going to make a prediction about who I think is going to win it all. And then we’ll get to your first Fab-Friday-on-a-Tuesday fiction prompt (the second Fab Friday prompt of all).
All right, let’s get to it.
I’m thinking Jena Irene wins the whole thing. If she doesn’t, I’m sure Caleb Johnson will. I’m willing to be upstaged by America at large, based on the votes, and the top 5 are all excellent singers, as far as I’m concerned (heck, the top 10 are pretty good, regardless).
And I thought Jessica Meuse sang great for being emotionally distraught over being kicked off the show last Thursday.
If Jena does win, it’ll be only the second time in Idol history that a female artist has won Idol in back-to-back years (the other one was when Fantasia Barrino and Carrie Underwood did it, way back in seasons 3 and 4).
And now for the Fab Friday prompt, delivered Tuesday:
You’ve shopped for school supplies in the store, and brought them home. Everything seems fine, but you discover that one thing you bought can do something it shouldn’t be able to do.
All right. Plot, setting, character, male, female, fantasy, science fiction, steampunk–mix this prompt up however you want to.
Because that’s what makes it fun. And it gives you more ideas for more stories, too.
Have a great rest of the day, everyone.
Until next time,
