Elizabeth: Friday Story Time and Sprints

Can you believe we’ve made it to the last Friday of the year?  That means we’ve made it through 51 weeks worth of writing sprints and creative short stories based on random themes and even more random words.

That’s a lot!

A big thanks goes out to everyone who has played along this year.   There have been some very fun stories posted with a lot of interesting characters and creative situations.  I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I have.

What better way to say goodbye to the current year that with a last burst of random creativity.  I’m going to give today’s words a try as soon as I get home from work.

Care to join me?

For those of you working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication), if you’re not feeling random, we’d love to hear a bit – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with and would like to share.

If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, I hope today’s random words will catch your creative fancy.


Here we go.  Since it’s our last sprint of the year, we’re going completely random today.  No theme, no starting sentence, you’re on your own with nothing but the 16 random words below to fire your imagination.

I’m sure you can do it.

If you need some inspiration, check out the short stories we’ve been posting all week, based on last Friday’s Christmas Short Story Challenge prompt and then give these words a try:

audacity                 excuse             helmet             horizontal

conversation         pearl                actress            werewolf

bucket                     guzzling          fingertip         getaway

grin                           knife                 pineapple       forgery

Happy writing to all!
