Creative Writing Prompts with Random Words

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Below you will find a list of random words for your creative writing prompts today.  I love the many possibilities that await us in random word lists.

logic, whisper, surprise, aluminum, squander, purify, limit, inhabit, brick sidewalk, steer, mail slot, frame, narrow, widen, cross, world, wind, groceries, keys, unclip, soft heat, hum, emergency, puzzle, truck, five, dance, May

Fiction Writing Practice:  Create a new character and write a paragraph about the character you create.  Use 7 words from the list to write about your character.  For example, maybe your character collects keys, drives a blue truck, and loves to hum, etc. . . .

Creative Nonfiction Prompt:  Pick a word that prompts a memory, and write from there.
Write a memory you have about celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

Poetry Writing Prompt:  Write a ten-line poem that uses one word from the list in every other line.

Free Write:  Just write about the picture. 

Happy Writing!
