A short industrial strength rainstorm this weekend drummed the rain-gutter right off the house and today it was all blue skies and sunshine. Good thing that wasn’t the other way around, since today was the annual American Heart Association Heart Walk around the lake at work. That would not have been fun in the rain.
Anyway, now that I’ve finished my 10,000 steps and picked up my event t-shirt and snack bag, it’s time to get back to the computer and turn my attention to a little Random Word Improv.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re walking, writing, or just enjoying whatever fall weather Mother Nature has thrown your way, 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 starting my writing after work, if I can get the cat off my writing desk that is. Feel free to start on today’s words without me.
For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how we play:
1. Pick as many words from the list as you want
2. Write the first line(s) of a story (or a whole mini-story) incorporating your words
3. Post your results in the comments section.
All right, let’s get started. Here are today’s random words. Last week’s entries were all great – can’t wait to see what stories you find hidden in this word list. I couldn’t resist the baby elephant above. Feel free to include an alternate animal if you prefer.
spoon video elephant banana
rose canoe balloon napkin
necklace blanket chair notebook
brush music sneakers sun
Are you ready? Go!

Back already? Can’t wait to read what you’ve come up with.
Happy writing to all.
