Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints – Tell Us a Story!

stopwatch graphicAnother week, another Friday – how did that happen? It’s rainy (yay!) and chilly here; a perfect time for some Random Word Improv.

Thanks to those who tried their hand at last week’s random words, including Jilly with the continuation of her Cinderella story and Michaeline with her tale of pro-wrestler Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Barnacle.   We’ve definitely moved away from death and destruction and on to new realms.

I’m just back from a family birthday celebration, so this week’s random words involve a form of cake. Thanks also to the family for today’s Bonus Word. Incorporate it in your effort for a little extra challenge.

Today’s bonus word is: inveigle

Here are the rest of today’s random words from a randomly selected random word generator:

playtime              sunrise                 snake               glitter

innocent              beguile                 zipper              vibrator

honeymoon       flawless               cupcake           explosion

For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how to play:

  1. Pick as many words from the list as you want
  2. Write the first line(s) of a story incorporating your words
  3. Post your results in the comments section.

Okay. Are you ready? Go tell us a story!

*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.

Peace and happy writing to all.

  1. Rainy gets a yay? We’ve had so much rain here we’re all growing mould.

    Nice list 😉 . I’ll be busy till supper time, so this will give me something fun to play around with in the pub later. Happy writing, everyone!

    • Jilly – after several drought years, rainy definitely gets a yay!. Looking forward to reading what you come up with. I’ll be posting my own after work – once I’ve had a chance for the words to marinate a little.

  2. Almost sunrise, and they hadn’t even begun to figure out who had stolen the Duke Del Fino’s amulet. They were still arguing about who should retrieve it.

    “Don’t even think you can inveigle me into staying behind,” Cinderella Doe, now Her Royal Highness Princess Charlemagne of Romancelandia, warned her husband of barely 48 hours.

    “But, Cupcake…”

    Cindy’s eyes began to glitter. Oops. There were times he could beguile her or get away with a pet name. This wan’t one of them. Her hands started to shake, and the rest of her body followed suit. His private name for her at moments of imminent meltdown, the one he’d take to his grave unuttered, was The Vibrator. He braced himself for the inevitable explosion.

    “I get that your best friend is the the far-from-innocent victim in this, but the villain was sitting on my side of the church,” she argued. “I bet you my D-flawless diamond engagement ring that my stepsister’s slithery sidekick Anna Conda was the snake coiling herself around Del.”

    “I’ve been thinking much the same,” he conceded, “ But it was my best man thinking with what was behind his zipper instead of what was between his ears.” He smacked his forehead with the heel of his hand. “The moment she wrapped her feather boa round his neck he should have been making his excuses, not thinking ‘Whee, playtime!’”

    “That’s agreed, then. We’re equally responsible. We’ll solve this together.” Cindy beamed at him with the dazzling smile that turned his own brains to mush. “Oh, Chas, I do love you. When you promised me the best honeymoon a girl could imagine, I never, ever dreamed it would be this good.”

  3. Glad you folks are getting a little rain! Hope it’s slow and steady.

    Speaking of slow and steady . . . my brain seems to have frozen with the freezing temperatures. I just can’t seem to kickstart it this week, but I’m really looking forward to the next batch of words!!
