Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints – The Easter Edition

Though you wouldn’t know it from the current rainy / cloudy weather in my part of the world, Easter is fast approaching.  The grocery stores are filled with eggs waiting to be colored, baskets ready to be filled, and candy ready to be eaten.

There will be no Easter egg hunting here at the writing castle, though the lawn in the front yard, which has flourished thanks to recent rains, would be perfect for it.  I have at least stocked the refrigerator with eggs, ham, and asparagus – Easter celebration requirements – though the decorations remain tucked away in a box in the garage.

What better way to celebrate Easter (or at least the arrival of another weekend) than with a Random Word Improv.

Care to join me?

Whether you’re waiting for a basket full of chocolate goodies, planning a celebration with friends and family, or looking forward to some uninterrupted writing time, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page.  I’ll be playing along once I get home from work, somewhere between dinner and coloring Easter eggs.  Feel free to play along at any time, with or without the eggs.

Ready to write?

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 incorporating your words
  3. Post your results in the comments section.

Okay, here is today’s list of Easter-themed random words:

basket                  flower             grass               hide

egg                         color               bunny             decorate

chocolate            ear                    toy                   parade

bonnet                 family              ribbon            hunt

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.
