Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints – Celebrating Women

Another week is coming to a close, bringing with it the start of Daylight Savings Time in many parts of the US this Sunday.  Fortunately I’m kicking off a 3-day weekend, so I’ll have plenty of time to make up for the hour of sleep I’ll lose when the time “springs forward” early Sunday morning.

With dry weather and sunny skies predicted for the next week or so, my 3-day weekend is likely to include a fair amount of yard-work as I attempt to reclaim my backyard from the jungle of weeds that are attempting to take over, thanks to all of the recent rains.   Regardless of whatever else I have planned, my weekend is also going to include plenty of writing time.

The last few weeks have been crazy busy with the day-job, which means I’ve had very little time or inspiration available for writing.  Watching the news coverage and reading posts about this week’s International Women’s Day marches and celebrations, however, has sparked lots of ideas that I can’t wait to get on paper, so I’ll be starting off my day with a little Random Word Improv.

Care to join me?

Whether you’re preparing for Spring, finishing that first draft, getting some well-deserved rest, or just looking for a distraction, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page.

Ready?

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 randomly selected “International Women’s Day” inspired words– can’t wait to see what stories you find hidden in the list.

strong          determined        change              feminine

capable        rights                   bold                   powerful

warm            march                  revolution       vote

equal            banner                 protest             inspire

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.
