Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints – It’s Playoff Time!

ice-hockeyFrequent readers of the blog are no doubt aware that I’m a big hockey fan.  The playoffs are underway and there is nothing better than watching the local team dismantle their opponent and advance to the next round.

After the excitement of Thursday night’s game however, I could definitely use a little Random Word Improv to burn off all the leftover adrenaline.

Care to join me?

Whether you wrote a lot, a little, or none at all this week, a few minutes of Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page, whether a good hockey game makes you cheer or run screaming in the other direction.

All right, let’s get started.  Here are today’s Hockey inspired words.  Do with them what you will.

Today’s bonus word is:                   Lord Stanley

Today’s bonus phrase is:              “power play”

Here are the rest of today’s randomly selected random words:

                offense                defense               score                     competition

                rival                      win                        lose                       fight

                team                     attack                    shot                       ice

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*

You’re back.  Kind of fun, right?  Can’t wait to see what you have come up with.

  1. Well, this is sort of weird. But, hey. I took random words, and now I have a random story! By the way, Elizabeth—go Sharks!

    “Good lord, Stanley, it’s not a competition. Don’t fight me on this.” Calida Banaszynski, her eyes like ice, took a drag from her cigarette, inspected the lengthening ash, and shot a look across the table at her companion.

    “No offense, Calida, but you’re the one keeping score.” Stanley Duckworth, her partner—and rival—in all things, said. “I’m Team Calida the whole way.”

    Calida took a sip of her drink. Stanley was right. She did hate the thought that he might win—which meant that she would lose. She was all about the power play, going on the attack. Making him go on the defense.

    “Fine,” she said. “Two no trump.”

    • I like it Kay. I can clearly sea Calida. Great way to incorporate a lot of words in a condensed way. I have my work cut out for me for my own entry.
