Elizabeth: Friday Writing Sprints – The Cinco de Mayo Edition

Another week, another Friday; hope yours is a good one.  It’s a day off work for me, which I can definitely use after the last day full of politically charged discussions and overflowing news feeds wedged in between an afternoon full of business meetings.

Adulting is tiring.

Fortunately, it’s not only Friday, but Cinco de Mayo, the perfect excuse for a dinner visit to my favorite local Mexican restaurant.  I’m sensing there will be both guacamole and a margarita in my future.  Before I get to that reward, I need to get some words on the page.  After all, the RWA conference is only 81 days away and I need to get this manuscript completed so I can meet with an editor/agent with a clear conscience.

What better way to kick off the day’s writing than with a little Random Word Improv?

Care to join me?

Whether you’re embroiled in politics, relaxing on a beach with an adult beverage, or just trying to make it through another day, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page.  Although the magnet on my refrigerator recommends that I “write drunk, edit sober,” I think I’ll try my hand at today’s words before indulging in the aforementioned margarita. Feel free to choose your own writing / drinking order.

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 are today’s randomly selected Cinco de Mayo inspired words:

dance                    margarita            fireworks            salsa

party                     mariachi              celebrate            parade

streamers           guacamole          sombrero            beer

chips                     green                    music                  culture

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.
