I know what you’re thinking. Today’s not Friday. But don’t you wish it was?
I certainly do.
Though we usually do our Writing Sprints on Friday, I thought it might be fun to switch things up a little this week and maybe get a few folks to play along who don’t have time on Fridays. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) Hopefully you’ll be able to carve out 15 minutes or so to see what you can do with today’s words.
I’m buoyed by the success of last Friday’s Writing Sprints, where I actually (thanks to some nudging by Eight Lady Michaeline) managed to post a story, so I’m eager to try again while the Girls in the Basement seem to be in the writing frame of mind. There’s nothing like a little Random Word Improv to flex your creativity and get some words on the page.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re working away at the day job, powering through your current manuscript, or just looking for a little distraction, a few minutes of improv are a great way to have a little fun and meet some new characters. As a plus, you might just come up a great idea for your next WIP. Worth a shot, right?
All right, let’s get started with today’s completely random words.
octopus feather pickle blanket
mirror alcohol fan complicated
breeze spicy bully club
amuse wizard applause flamethrower
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.
If you’re one of our Twitter followers, our challenge to you is a 140 character story (or even an opening line) featuring one or more of today’s words. Tag us, and we’ll repost some of the results here next week.
Okay. Are you ready? Let’s sprint!
*whistling aimlessly while you are off being creative*
You’re back. Kind of fun, right? Can’t wait to see what you have come up with.
