Random word generators

These are positively my favourite things at the moment.  Got some spare time on your hands?  Want to write something?  No idea what?  Generate a random word (or more) to create a story.  I do try not to ‘cheat’ and skip the words that I can’t think of anything for straight away, but I had to pass on ‘title’ today.  TITLE?  What?  I have enough problems with titles (see this post https://newtowritinggirl.wordpress.com/2009/04/24/i-hate-titles/) to create some writing around that word.  Ugh.

Woman and disagreement were the next two words that came up on this site http://watchout4snakes.com/creativitytools/RandomWord/RandomWordPlus.aspx  So I wrote a 1,000 word short story encompassing them.  I’m not too happy with the ending and think I need to change it a bit.  But I’ve done it.  Yes, I finished the first draft of SOMETHING.  This day will go down in history as the first time I’ve actually got to the end of something without giving up or moving on to something else. 

It’s not just the disagreement story I’ve done today.  Oh no.  I got woken up ridiculously early this morning by bright sunlight coming through the window  (The one and only time I hate sunshine) and remembered my dream.  So I actually wrote it down. Which is good, because I can’t remember it now.  (I had another 2 which I didn’t write down, but let’s forget about those!).

On top of all this – I also did some of my course during my lunch break.  I am on fire today.  It makes up for the weekend where I did nothing I guess  🙂
