If you are here in the states, your days are likely to be filled with shopping, turkey, and interesting family gatherings in the days to come. What better way to give your mind a break than with some writing sprints.
For those of you knee-deep in NaNo, especially for those whose story has turned stubborn or is refusing to cooperate, if the Story Prompts Michille posted yesterday didn’t get you out of your rut, perhaps a few minutes of random writing will.
Since we’ve been having such success with it these last few weeks, how about another round of Random Word Improv. (Check the posts here, here, and here if you want to see some of the previous efforts) This week, to shake things up a bit, our random words have a bit of a holiday theme to them, though that doesn’t need to rule out the tales of destruction and mayhem that previous lists have triggered.
For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how we play:
- Pick as many words from the list as you want
- Write the first line(s) of a story incorporating your words
- Post your results in the comments section.
Here’s today’s list of random words from a randomly selected random word generator:
ugly glimmer gravy aquarium
bootlegger dishwasher store casserole
blouse choke pistol clam
villain pie wept dream
fried fiasco divorce yam
Okay. Are you ready? Go!
*whistling aimlessly while you are off being creative*
Ah, you’re back. Kind of fun, right? Can’t wait to see what you have come up with. .
Happy writing to all.
