Free Fall Friday

From Betsy: 

Hello! For those of you who are finding time to write, congratulations! For those people who are successfully finding places to put this never-ending snow, please share your secret.

Our house is encased in ice and snow, and while I write, there is the constant drip, drip, drip of water leaking from our about-to-cave-in roof.

A sense of humor is necessary these days, especially with winter still going strong.

Remember, don’t let the snow keep you from writing! Yes, I know you have to shovel, but . . .

And now for this week’s prompt. Look at the picture of the plane, and then write a one-page response. Start with the following: ________ waited for_________

Here are questions to consider:

  1. Is your mc going onto the plane or are they waiting for someone to disembark?
  2. If they are waiting for someone, who is it?
  3. If they are going somewhere on the plane, where are they going to?
  4. Are they afraid to fly or afraid to see who is getting off the plane?
  5. How long have they been waiting at the airport?
  6. How long has the plane been parked?
  7. Are they with anyone else?

Have fun and write happy! Recently, a ten-year-old girl sent me her first page based on one of the January prompts. Look for her story this weekend. If she can do it, so can you!

Talk tomorrow,
