Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints – The Cuddly Puppy Edition

Today is National Puppy Day.  For those who prefer kittens, your day is October 29th, while human babies get May 2nd.  I love the fact that someone (or many someone(s)) have found something to celebrate for every day.    In addition to being National Puppy Day, today is also apparently National Chip & Dip Day, National Melba Toast Day, and World Meteorological Day.  That’s a lot to fit in a single day 🙂

I think I’ll stick with the puppies.

For those who are curious:

“Puppy Day was established [in 2006] to bring awareness to the world about puppy mills and how to go about adopting.

Sadly, my house is currently devoid of puppies (something the cat totally approves of), so I’ll have to find something else to occupy my time.  Sounds like a little Random Word Improv is in order.

Who’s with me?

Whether you’re a fan of four-legged creatures or not, a few minutes of Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page.  As a plus, once you get in the writing frame of mind, you’ll be ready to write your way through the rest of day.  You’ll earn bonus points if you have your own puppy close by for inspiration.

All right, let’s get started with today’s National Puppy Day inspired words.

fluffy            playful          bark                adorable

love              friends          cute                cuddle

crawl            magical         fantastic       boundless

growl            joy                  ball                 loyal

For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how to play:

  1. Pick as many words from the list as you want
  2. Write the first line(s) of a story incorporating your words
  3. Post your results in the comments section.

Okay.  Are you ready?  Go tell us a story!

*whistling aimlessly while you are off being creative*

You’re back.  Kind of fun, right?  Can’t wait to see what you have come up with.
