This has been a very long week and not just because of all that has been going on in the world. At the day job, after almost of year of planning, we’ve just wrapped up four days of big, high-visibility events, which included a reception and dinner attended by CEOs and executives from dozens of billion-dollar companies.
It was a big deal.
I know that because a number of the attendees came with security details in tow, both hidden and in plain sight. There were sweeps-of-the-room done before the events and pleasant but don’t-mess-with-me individuals posted around the room, making sure no one got anywhere they weren’t supposed to be. Not quite the level of events my work week typically contains. On the bright side, I got to rub shoulders with some very interesting people, on the negative side it meant a week of early mornings, late nights, drama, and problem-solving.
Now that the events are over and done with, it’s time to relax, regroup, and get back to normal (or at least what currently passes for normal). Spending some time on my work-in-progress sounds like just the thing; I think I’ll jumpstart that with a Random Word Improv warm-up session.
Care to join me?
Whether you’re taking a break from the internet, working on your latest story, enjoying some “you” time, or just trying to make it to the end of another work-week, a few minutes of Random Word Improv are a great way to have a little fun and get some words on the page. I’ll be sleeping in today, so feel free to get started sprinting without me. I’ll catch up once I’ve woken up and had some coffee.
Today’s random words may be security-related, but the theme is up to you. There will be bonus points for including a “unicorn” though.

For any of you new to Random Word Improv, here’s how we 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? Let’s sprint!

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