The Fourth Scribble Fest

Join me this Saturday for the fourth Scribble Fest! Here's how...
  • Get out pen and paper, or start up your computer
  • Randomly select five words from the dictionary (see below)
  • Set a 10-minute timer
  • Write as quickly as you can
  • When the time is up, send your Scribble--just the way it is--to me (contact link in sidebar)
  • I will post your Scribble on my blog
  • Send friends and family to enjoy the fruits of your first Scribble Fest
The challenge this time is to include five randomly selected words in your Scribble. 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!) To read examples from previous Scribble Fests, select Scribble Fest 1, 2, or 3 from the tag cloud in the sidebar.

This writing exercise is quick and easy--perfect for even those who wouldn't consider themselves writers. You may be surprised by what you are able to write; so scribble with us this Saturday! I look forward to reading what you come up with!
