As I mentioned previously, I’m currently working on a murder mystery story. For inspiration, I’ve also been working my way through the mystery novels in my TBR pile. All of which has me thinking of both books and murders as this week comes to a close.
What better way to end the week (and kick off the weekend) than with a little murder mystery inspired Random Word Improv.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re a fan of mysteries, looking for a distraction, or just feel like playing with words, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. I’ve got a long day of meetings in my future, but as soon as they’re done I’ll be breaking out the notepad and pen and taking a stab at today’s words (oh, who am I kidding, I’ll probably be surreptitiously doing that *during* the meetings).
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 murder-mystery themed random words:
worn dusty hidden shelves
volume spine treasure bloodstain
body bookend secret telephone
drawer compass statue envelope
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.
