Today, we’re heading to the dictionary for a creativity boost. Here’s what I want you to do:
You’re going to select six words and use them to write a story of less than 250 words. You will select your six words from:
- page 52, 11th word down
- page 111, 2nd word down
- page 144, 1st word down
- page 199, 9th word down
- page 225, 12th word down
- page 243, 6th word down
Now, that you have your six words, open the dictionary at random, close your eyes and select a word. That word will provide the subject of your story.
Use the first three words in your opening paragraph. The last three words may be sprinkled throughout the story. Bold face the selected words, then share your completed story with us in the comment field below.
