Weekly Writing Prompt #44

Some of you already know my penchant for 50s crooners, especially ‘old blue eyes’ Frank Sinatra. Francis Albert Sinatra was born on this day in 1915, so of course, today’s soundtrack is heavy on the Sinatra croon. Though he wasn’t always the most stand up guy (four marriages, links to the Mafia etc.) you can’t deny his talent. So this week’s prompt is to celebrate Old Blue Eyes.

Don’t forget the Sinatra Christmas tunes this time of year!

Weekly Writing Prompt #5

Today is the birthday of my other half. I love birthdays. It doesn't even have to be mine. It's such a great excuse to celebrate and eat cake. I love trying to surprise my partner but it's not something I'm great at. He usually guesses, which totally infuriates me. So in honour of his birthday and yet another attempt to surprise him, this week's prompt is "Surprise!". Get creative. Your character could be walking through the door and hear people yell surprise or perhaps they're waiting in the dark ready to surprise someone else.

And Happy Birthday to those of you celebrating this week! I hope someone surprises you.
