Morning Inspiration: Writing Prompt No. 6

Good morning! Rise and shine! May I borrow a minute of your time for some quick inspiration?

It’s been a week since Thanksgiving, and I have just one question for you. Have you thrown out those Thanksgiving leftovers yet? No? Well, it’s time sweetie, past time.

Today’s Prompt


My Inspired Story

When he said, “Plan on getting dirty,” I honestly thought he was referring to something else.

Cleaning out the gutters? Not my idea of a first date, but we’re supposed to hang the Christmas lights after, so the night could still end…magically.

He balances on the ladder, fourth step from the top, and I remain grounded, holding out the black garbage bag to catch the leaves he tosses below, clumped together by time, rain, dust, and God knows whatever other particulates in the air our government tries to convince us isn’t polluted.

As I wait for the next delivery from above, my eyes drift from his shoulders, past his fleece jacket, down to the denim jeans that hug his curves just right.

Never thought I’d be attracted to a man with a big butt. Then again, who wants a man shaped like a twig? He’d break right under me. But that ass? That ass can carry some weight.

Ugh, forgive me for being single for so long. Even as he cleans the gutters, my mind is perpetually stuck there.

Time for Yours

Now it’s your turn! Use your inspiration from either the word or photo prompt (or both) above and write whatever comes to mind! Fiction, poetry, prose, random ramblings—you pick! Drop it in the comments below or post on your own blog and link it back here. I hope you’re inspired!
