From This Morning's Writing Prompt Group

Write for 15 minutes on each of the following:

--Word prompt:  Lists

--Tea-tag prompt:  “A pound of pluck is worth a ton of luck.” 
(This was said by James Garfield, and yes, we noted the irony in that he was assassinated and could have perhaps used a bit more luck in his life.)

Random ideas and images now free-floating through my mind after two hours delightfully spent with the group:

--undercurrents of anger that we fear
--The Keg restaurant in Evanston, IL (which, BTW,  back in my day was a fancy restaurant, not the place to get served underage!)
--the loyalty of animals
--the sound of the word “chunky”
--dialogue without quotation marks
