Random Word Link Example

I pulled out these three words from my word jar for a random word link example:

  • Porridge

  • Shark

  • Thunder

I was in a gloomy mood the day I wrote this blog and example so the paragraph I came up with reflects this. However, it did serve to help overcome a writers block I was having in regards to a scene in my current novel.

Thunder boomed from the heavy ominous clouds as I ate my porridge looking out the kitchen window. My thoughts strayed to the teen boy who had been attacked by a shark the day before. I had been the scrub nurse on duty during his long operation to repair the damage to his legs. The surgeon was not confident that he would ever recover the full use of his legs.

Random Word Link

Random word link is an exercise to help you warm up or to overcome writers block. It is also a way of getting you to think outside the box and to form unique stories and ideas from everyday words. This is a great exercise to practice regularly as connecting random words helps to come up with creative solutions and problem solving.

Once again, delve into your random word jar! Pick out 3 – 5 words and write a short story or paragraph using these words. It doesn’t have to be logical or perfect; the idea is to stretch your creative muscle and thought processes. It is not necessary to set a time limit with this particular exercise, like when free writing. However if you are using it as a warm up it can be a good idea, otherwise you may find that you use it as an excuse to procrastinate and never get to work on your current project! It is also fun to see what your mind comes up with when under time pressure!
