Let’s have some fun with fiction

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you should know by now that I love to write. More often than not, I’ll write about my life experiences and the opinions that those experiences have formed. Very rarely do I write fiction, so I’d like to write more.

To help me do that, I bought The Amazing Story Generator by Jay Sacher. It’s a little book that has three sections from top to bottom. Each section consists of hundreds of settings, characters, and plots. So you can have thousands of prompts based on how you open the book. For example, here’s what I opened it to last night:

“The night before the wedding, a former child television star refuses to leave the bathtub.”

Talk about getting your creative side going. What kind of story could come of this?

So I’m going to start writing little bits of fiction based on these prompts and feature them on the blog once in a while.
