write some friday fiction using nose as a prompt.
her nose tingled. she scratched it, hoping to quell the itch, but it persisted. the air was full of allergies, and so she expected it, and soon she sneezed. nothing was more lovely than a good sneeze, she decided.
write about a food you’re passionate about
oh, you know, same old same old with this one. hfcs! how i loathe thee. mostly i just loathe what it represents, which isn’t as bad as worrying about darfur, but at least i’m passionate about something, right? as for food i love? can’t go wrong with a medium-rare grass-fed steak.

i’m going to do the one-minute writer.
today’s writing prompt: happy. what is making you happy today?
today what’s making me happy is the fact that i’m starting to look for places to live in the area. i think it took nate 15 minutes of having sophie ignore him over the 4th for him to say a big “YEA” to looking for a place. tonight i’m going to look at a place in stewartville and tomorrow, who knows. it’ll be good.
