Just Jot It January Prompt for Wednesday Jan. 6th

I’ve been thinking all day about what I’m going to do for tomorrow’s JusJoJan prompt. I didn’t think I’d have a problem with it – I was just going to make my “jot” my usual One-Liner Wednesday. However, far more people are using the prompts than I’d anticipated, and I don’t want to let you all down.

So it is my great joy to announce that someone will have the opportunity to create a prompt for tomorrow. The rules for getting your prompt in are as before: one word in the comments below. If your comment includes more than one word, your suggestion will be eliminated. Also, if you’ve already contributed to the existing prompts for the rest of the month, you are disqualified. The first one to write their word below, wins. Hurry up!

P.S. This post is also part of Tuesday Use It In A Sentence. Today’s word is “joy” and this week it’s being hosted by Kelli at Forty, c’est Fantastique!. Click on the link and join in!


Just Jot It January 5th – 2016 (My Bucket List)

For the 2016 prompt I’ve decided to take a page from Opinionated Man’s book and write my 2016 Bucket List. Here we go:

  1. Finish my novel and get it published. (I cringe to think how many times this has already drowned in my bucket.)
  2. Get paid for something I write. (It might even be my novel!)
  3. Have a weekend to myself. In my house. Alone.
  4. Teach the dog sign language as well as voice commands so Alex can communicate with him.
  5. A boy and his puppy

    A boy and his puppy

  6. Get my house spotlessly clean top to bottom. (Look for this one on the list every year for the next ten years … a girl can dream.)
  7. Do something with the pot hole that is my back yard. (Okay, it’s not that bad, but it’s not that great either.)
  8. Keep the weight off that I’ve already lost. (This is starting to sound like a list of resolutions. 😛 )
  9. Finish writing the novel I said I was going to finish by Christmas. (My bad.)
  10. Get inspired some more!

What’s on your bucket list for this year?
