As blog commenter Scott pointed out in Wednesday’s post, there’s nothing like a dog for a shot of joy, not to mention a good reason to get out in the fresh air.
Meanwhile, the Twelfth Night celebrations are over, the house put back to order (kind of), and the calendar is starting to fill up at the day job. I’m still in a holiday frame of mind, but I’m hoping a round of Random Word Improv will get me back into the swing of things.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re making great progress on your New Year’s resolutions, dreading the return of work-week traffic, or just taking each day as it comes, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. If you’re hard at work on your current manuscript, it can even be a good way to spark some fresh ideas. I’m running a little behind schedule, so I’ll be giving today’s words a try later on once I get last week’s improv finished and posted. Feel free to get started 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 words – can’t wait to see what stories you find hidden in the list.
leash bottle wreckage raccoon
doormat lottery poetry dismember
flammable twisted apology innocent
casserole blouse hallucination marshmallow
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.
