We had a major ice storm in February of 2009 (for more pictures than you want to see, click here), and every time we get freezing rain I get twitchy. To see why, you might want to read this post on my old blahg.
It isn’t that I don’t like adventures. Well, I’m lying–I don’t like adventures, if I can possibly avoid them. I love to read about them, and I try to relish them if they happen, but I don’t seek them out. I like to think I’m Mr. Toad, but I’m more Mole from WIND IN THE WILLOWS: in the end, I want my snug, cozy, dull, comfortable routine.
WRITING PROMPT: Write a paragraph about a character who loves routine but is caught up in an adventure. Write a paragraph about an adventurer who is forced into inaction through incapacitation, being in disguise or other reason.
