Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #17

Here is the latest collection of prompts from my Tumblr page.  For reasons known only in the deep recesses of my subconscious this time around we focus on days of the week. Weird, I know.  Go figure.

#117  Sunday.  A day to attend church for many people, a day of rest for others. Some have regular family suppers, others devote the day to reading the Sunday Times.  What do you do?  Your character?

#118  Arrggh, its Monday.  How does your main character feel on this day? Does he or she love getting up and going back to work?  Or maybe she worked all weekend so this day feels no different than any other?  Or does he hate going back to the grind of the workweek?  

#119  "I love Tuesdays," she said.

"And why might that be?"

"Because they aren’t Mondays but still have a feeling of freshness to them."

What’s your favorite day of the week and why?

#120  Wednesday, Hump Day.  Does your character work at a job that make the week drag?  Or does she do something she loves so much the days fly by?

#121  Oh, Thursday! It’s a very purply kind of day, rich in expectation and promise for the weekend to come.  Good things happen on Thursdays, like Thanksgiving.  What’s your take on it?

#122 "Yay, it’s Friday," she said.

"I hate Fridays."

"How could you hate Fridays?"

"Easy.  It’s because, several years ago…."

#123  Saturday! I once knew an adult man who slept until noon every Saturday. What time does your protagonist rise on the weekends?  What about during the week? How does he or she sleep?  Is he a sound sleeper or an insomniac?  A night owl or a morning person?

 Leave a comment, please, because I love hearing from you.  What's your favorite day of the week?  I'll start.  Mine is Friday.  Why?  Because it is a work day (and I love my work) but it is sort of a slacker work day, when we don't have to take it all quite so seriously.  And there's the promise of the weekend to come!
