One of my go-to writing warm-ups is to write a story inspired by three random words. This week, I was needing a bit of a break from query letter & synopsis writing, and I didn’t have enough time to dive into rewrites of book 2 of my series. But I needed a fiction fix. I tend to go through withdrawal symptoms when I spend too much time away from writing fiction. It’s really not a pretty sight, so I’ll spare you the details.
Anywho . . . I wrote a little story inspired by three random words one of my middle school writing students gave me. Enjoy!
