A Call for Reader Participation

I've been thinking, and I'd like to try something different with my Wednesday posts.  Instead of using random word generators to come up with my inspiration, I'd like to turn to my readers.

Starting this week, I'll be asking you for random words.  I will need you to provide the following in the comments.

1 noun
1 verb


One short sentence setting up a scenario.

You can also specify whether you'd rather have me write a poem or a piece of flash fiction based on the words or scenario you provide.  If you don't specify which you'd like, I'll decide which I would rather do.

I will choose one comment and post the resulting piece of flash fiction or poetry the following week.  I'll also link back to the person who provided the inspiration for the week's piece.

I want to try this, because there are a lot of creative people out there, and the idea of interacting with all of you during the creative process sounds more fun. Feel free to get crazy with your suggestions, if you'd like.  Nothing is too crazy for me!


  1. noun - cat
    verb - dance

    This sounds like it could be a lot of fun :)

  2. Looking outside...

    Noun: Grass
    Verb: Raining.

    Knock yourself out! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

  3. What a great idea! How about a flash-fiction scenario:

    I didn't expect to see them, considering "they" shouldn't really exist.

  4. Ship.
    Verse is cool, but whatever you want to write!

  5. Doggerel
    Flash fiction, please :)

  6. Oh, I like this!

    Noun: rocket
    Verb: fail
