Here a while back I mentioned a great idea Tess Grantham turned me on to – where you randomly select words from books as a way to challenge yourself in starting a story.
So, here, in order, are the references and words:
pg171, line 21, word 8
pg233, line 1, word 6
pg121, line 16, word 3
pg43, line 12, word 8
Later on I’ll post the results of my brainstorm, but in the meantime, if anyone thinks they can be first to discover all 4 books these words are drawn from, and post the answer in the comments here, I’ll send them a copy of my latest poetry collection between giants!)
And to see how Tess does the exercise (properly I might add!) have a look here. Fascinating to see her take the words and roll them into lines, ideas and possibilities!
