Happy April Fool’s Day, lovelies. This is a special day in my family: it’s the anniversary of the day my parents got engaged. The date probably tells you everything you need to know about my family, but, hey, it seems to have worked out well.
I know you’re all recovering from the weekend sugar coma, but Monday is upon us and she will not wait for you to shake off the chocolate sweats. But I have a nice game for us to play for this week’s challenge. I call it Noun Roulette.
How we play is simple. Go here, to this random noun generator. Set it to something between five and ten—player’s choice. Then hit the Generate button.
Now write me a very short—100 words or less—piece of a story using all of those nouns. Make it fun.
My words? Cuban, grain, quiver, rabbi, and test. So here’s my story:
Setting her quiver down on the next stool, carefully so the arrows didn’t spill on the floor, Amy resisted the urge to adjust her fake Rabbi beard again and ordered a Cuban on whole grain. “Quickly, please,” she added, dropping her voice to sound more masculine. The blonde woman behind the counter gave her a look, but didn’t comment. “I’ve got a urine test in ten minutes.”
67 words. Your turn. If you need inspiration, go eat some chocolate.
