Vacation season is in full swing, which includes visiting friends and family; seeing new places; and, most likely, doing a fair amount of eating out. For me, it has meant eating some things I was hard pressed to recognize and indulging in my current favorite dessert – lemon drizzle cake.
To wipe some of those hard to recognize meals out of my mind, I think a little Random Word Improv is in order.
Care to join me?
Whether you met your writing goals this week, spent your time dealing with daily life, or just took some time to relax and recharge, a few minutes of improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. I don’t have a jukebox like the one in the picture above, but I’ll queue up some music on my iPod to get me in the writing mood. Feel free to queue up a motivational sound-track of your own.
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.
All right, let’s get started. As you might have guessed from the title of this post, we have a theme today, inspired by my favorite brunch spot, though you are free to ignore it. Here are our specially selected random words. Can’t wait to see what you do with them.
Grill counter order jukebox
Red lemonade waitress vinyl
Coffee hunger crowd refill
Music voices spill ice-cream
Okay. Are you ready? Go!
*whistling aimlessly while you are off being creative*
Back already? Can’t wait to read what you’ve come up with.
Happy writing to all.
