According to the weatherman, our cool clear weather is about to take a turn towards the cloudy and rainy. I always loved rainy days as a kid, even though my mother made me wear hideously ugly rain boots (which I always ditched as soon as I was out of sight). As an adult, that love of rain is diminished somewhat by the hazards of driving on rain-slicked roads. On the positive side, the green and growing things in the yard will definitely appreciate the rain, as will the weeds that will inevitably sprout soon thereafter.
A rainy day (or rainy weekend) seems like the perfect time to do some writing, and what better way to start than with a little Random Word Improv.
Care to join me?
Whether your skies are clear and bright or full of rain clouds 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 trying to fit in some writing sprints in the afternoon while I wait for the rain-gutter repairman. 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. Here are today’s randomly selected rainy-day inspired random words – can’t wait to see what stories you find hidden in this word list.
Soggy downpour umbrella boots
Glisten slippery breeze puddle
Slick droplet rivulet ominous
Rainbow mud clouds duckling
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.
