Anyway, whether you wrote a lot, a little, or none at all this month, a few minutes of Improv is a great way to keep those writing muscles in practice and give your brain a little exercise too.
Before we start, here’s a quote I found when looking for something else. I don’t know about you, but this made me chuckle:
James Joyce was a famously slow writer. Once a friend found him slumped dejectedly over his desk. “How many words did you manage today?”
“Seven,” Joyce replied.
“But that’s great, for you.”
“But now I have to work out their right order,” he wailed.
Now let’s get to our Improv. Today, not only do we have a Bonus Word but we also have a Bonus Character. Incorporate one or both in your story for virtual bonus points.
Today’s bonus word is: mercurial
Today’s bonus character is: A man on a unicycle
Here are the rest of today’s random words from a randomly selected random word generator:
exhilaration tantrum camouflage beach
dizzy parachute cherry classic
cyclops hormonal royal lick
For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how to 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.
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.
Productive and happy writing to all.
