Scribble Fest on Saturday!
As usual, set yourself a 10-minute timer and write as much of a scene as you can in that amount of time; it's about quantity, not quality, so don't worry about rewriting. (To read more detailed instructions and examples from previous Scribble Fests, explore the tag cloud in the sidebar.)
But this time, let's shake things up a bit. Before you set your timer, grab a dictionary. Now close your eyes, open the hefty book, drop your finger to the page, and read what it landed on. The word was "baboon"? Okay, that means you'll have to find a creative way to incorporate the word "baboon" into your scribble! Repeat four more times; you should have a total of five randomly chosen words you must use. (In case you're wondering, you can re-do only if you land on a word that isn't G-rated. Then please try again if you want me to accept your scribble. Otherwise, no picking and choosing; you're stuck with the words you get!)
Does that sound crazy, zany, weird, fun enough for everyone? Good. Then I hope to see you and all your friends, relatives, and blog followers this Saturday for some scribbling!
