So over on Instagram, Laini Taylor @lainit, author of the bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy among other YA titles, shared this really fun writing exercise. With Laini's permission, I'm sharing it here:
"This was the writing exercise we did this morning at my weekly Zoom meeting (optional; some people just work on their wip’s):
Choose 1 word off list A and 1 off List B and use the result as a title or prompt for a freewrite, poem, brainstorm, story, or whatever. I posted a numbered version of the list too, since we’ve sometimes found it better to let a dice roll choose for you (there’s a virtual 20-sided die site if you don’t have one). I got “riot whisper” and gave it a quick 15-minute freewrite effort, which was fun! There are some good combos in there if you want to play!” —Laini Taylor
Here's the close-up on those lists:
Hope it inspires you as well! Thanks, Laini!
