Here’s the first page of the yeah, write! pdf you get
by donating to my Night of Writing Dangerously Fund.

Here’s what the page is about:
A grab bag of words to choose from to create a story,
along with some space to write it down.
Use one word or many to create your story!
The story behind the page:
I love playing around with words.
That probably comes as no surprise to anyone due to the fact that I’m a writer.
I love taking words as a story starter,
because you can look at a word
and I can look at word
and we can think many different things
and take a story in many different directions.
I started a whole middle grade novel
by combining the word wish and fish,
just because they rhyme.
I did word studies for a while and showed them via Instagram.
I remember in college that one of the exercises in creative writing class
was to ask random people for a word
and make a list of about 10 words and include those in the story.
I thought that was really fun and it felt like a puzzle to me.
That’s why I think the word grab is so fun;
seeing all the words there and combining them in different ways
can bring up a ton of different stories.
Here’s a video of what I ended up doing.
I read you my story and ended up using all the words!
I thanked my donors in this one too!
