Craft/Writing Prompt--Word Games

Here's a random list of words (pulled from the well-worn pages of my bright red American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, purchased when I was an editor at its publisher, Houghton Mifflin). Write for twenty minutes, using all the words.

  1. pensive
  2. firebird
  3. brink
  4. acrobat
  5. escalate
  6. lapis lazuli
  7. river
  8. almond
  9. trace
  10. vial
I'll be happy to critique the first three responses I receive in the next 24 hours. Have fun!
