SHAKE IT UP AND MAKE IT UP
YOUR MIGHTY PEN >
Here’s a fun exercise we call “Shake it up and make it up.” If you have a copy of our book, DREAM TO LAUNCH, you can start by removing pages 41 through 44, Next, cut out the individual words by trimming along the dash lines. When you are done, you will have 64 separate pieces with one word on each side for a total of 128 different keywords. Put all the pieces in a box, bag, or bucket, and then, shake it up. Without looking, retrieve nine pieces. Challenge yourself to make up a three hundred word story that includes both words from each side. You can use variations of your 18 keywords as plurals, past tense, or in any way that you want, so long it makes sense. Most of all, have fun.
If you would rather, you can print pages from the PDF here. After trimming the pieces, select 18 pieces and include those in your story.
Do this a few times, and you’ll be a master storyteller and writer in no time.
Want to make your short story even better? We use GRAMMARLY to check and double-check everything we write – yes, everything.
Success comes through imagination and opportunity.
