Halloween costumes are in the stores, the Hallmark Channel is promoting their “Countdown to Christmas,” and outside we’ve been having our traditional end-of-summer heat wave. It never fails, just about the time I start moving the sweaters and long-sleeved tops to the front of the closet, the temperatures spike and I’m scrambling to find my tank-tops and flip-flops.
Along with the last-hurrah of summer, sunset has been coming earlier and earlier, which means no more working in the yard after work. On the bright side, the landscaping loss is a writing gain. What better time to engage in some Random Word Improv than in the evening after dark?
Care to join me?
Whether you’re in the midst of a heat wave, finishing your Christmas shopping (gosh, I hope not), or hard at work in the office, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. I’ll be doing my writing once the last of this week’s day-long business meetings is over. Feel free to start on today’s words without 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 (or a whole mini-story) incorporating your words
- Post your results in the comments section.
All right, let’s get started. Today’s words were triggered by Michaeline’s recent post on secrets. I’m sure you can find a story hiding somewhere amongst them.
honest belong hint confidence
misunderstand share web power
fester decoy pretend confess
hide accuse weakness tempted
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.
