The end of another week has arrived, as has the end of another month. What better way to close things out than with a little creative writing. Conveniently, I have the whole day off work to do just that (well, that and to take care of the taxes).
I was watching the news before drafting this post and frankly our current reality, with its Russian intrigue, conspiracies, political wrangling, and controversies is so mind-boggling that mere fiction would be hard-pressed to even come close.
Nevertheless, I think I’ll give it a try, starting with a little Random Word Improv.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re fascinated by your own reality, figuring out just what happens next in your story, or taking a well-deserved break to relax and recharge, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. I have “sleep in” at the top of my agenda for the day, but writing is #2 on the list . . . .well, maybe #3, right after “procure caffeinated beverage.” Your list may vary.
Ready to write?
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 incorporating your words
- Post your results in the comments section.
Okay, here is today’s list of randomly selected theme-less random words:
ugly glimmer intrigue aquarium
door banana tie pistol
lock piano wept dream
fried fiasco secret frog
Are you ready? Go!
*whistling aimlessly while you are off being creative*
Ah, you’re back. Kind of fun, right? Can’t wait to see what you have come up with.
