Buccaneers and Bucks

Prompt from “The Write-Brain Workbook” by Bonnie Neubauer. The prompt was to close your eyes, circle two words on a grid, and then use the words as your focus in two different prompts. 

Word Circled: volcano

Start with: The buccaneer…stared at the steam rising from the water. He needed to dock the ship but he couldn’t, not with the bright orange liquid (was it a liquid?) flowing from the mountain. This was not good, not good at all.

Word Circled: shock

Start with: The two bucks…in her wallet made Jen cringe. She could have sworn she had more cash on her, a lot more. She dug deeper and that’s when she found it. A note addressed to her. A not from the unlikeliest of people.
