Here in the states, we’re getting ready to celebrate Memorial Day, a day established to remember people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces (and often just deceased loved ones in general).
For some, this weekend is the unofficial start of the summer season. Sure, summer isn’t for a few weeks yet and the current weather is foggy and brisk, but this three-day weekend is bound to have its share of picnics, shorts, water sports, and the occasional adult beverage.
I’m looking forward to the time off work, though it does mean that next week will be packed extra-full of things to do. Ah well, for now, this three-day weekend means a few extra hours of napping, reading, and writing time. What better way to kick all that off than with a little Random Word Improv?
Who’s with me?
Whether you’re remembering lost loved ones, planning to spend some quality time with friends and family, or just looking for a little distraction, 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 might just find you want to keep going.
All right, let’s get started with today’s weekend inspired random words.

For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how to 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. Are you ready? Go tell us a story!

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