Monday, June 29 – Sunday July 5, 2009 Days #6 - #10
Fifteen minutes a day helps your writing progress in amazing ways. :-)
Find a dictionary or encyclopedia--it MUST be paper, not online. Open it at random and, without looking at the words on the page, put a finger down on the page. Then, pick any word within a one-inch radius of your finger. Use that word as your writing prompt to create a scene for your current writing project. (If you can't find a print encyclopedia or dictionary (sad), then open up any book, magazine, or newspaper and follow the same instructions.)
For example, I got the word "expectations." Now I will create a scene that uses expectations in some way.
