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!
