Earth Day might have been celebrated back in April, but it feels like we should probably do a refresh on that after all of today’s climate policy news. Fortunately, I’ve been able to find at least a little good to go with the bad.
At the day job, I spent part of today in a brainstorming session looking at ways to reduce our environmental footprint; when I got home our governor was on the news reiterating our state’s commitment to working to combat climate change (as were many other leaders and corporations); and on Facebook, one of our own Eight Ladies posted a photo of her carbon-footprint-reducing efforts – a new solar panel installation. On a smaller scale, I’m off work on Friday, so I’ll be sparing the local air my usual 2 hours of auto emissions. Baby steps.
With the backyard growing season well underway (especially for weeds), I looks like my day off is going to include a fair amount of yard work. If all goes well, it will also include a fair amount of writing, and what better way to get at least some of those words on the page than with a little Random Word Improv?
Who’s with me?
Whether you’re finishing up the last scenes in your WIP, reclaiming your yard from an overgrowth of weeds, 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 the words keep flowing.
All right, let’s get started with today’s nature inspired random words.
sun green flower bee
leaf wind pebble dirt
grass mountain stream branch
bloom butterfly waterfall trellis
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.
