It feels like this week has been one long traffic jam. School must be back in session. Thank goodness the Labor Day long weekend is almost here. I’ll be avoiding the roads and working on some projects around the house, like converting an old entertainment center into my new writing desk / work space.
To get ready to put my new writing zone to good use, I think it’s time for a little Random Word Improv.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re bemoaning the influx of back-to-school traffic, relaxing with a frosty beverage, or heading off for a holiday weekend, a few minutes of improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. The skies are sporting vivid sunset colors by the time I get home from work, so I’ll be doing my best to work in a writing sprint on my lunch hour. Feel free to find the perfect time and sprint along with me.
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. Today’s words may be a little random, but I’m sure you’ll be able to find a story in there somewhere.

worm official wine convict

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.
For those of you who aren’t in the improv mood, or whose writing muse is still MIA, feel free to brainstorm ideas for future Friday Writing Sprint themes.
