Introducing Five Word Wednesday!

Five Word Wednesday!

You know how sometimes when you're brain is stuck, you get up to do something else and all of a sudden creativity comes to you?  Or, if you're like me, you walk into another room and start doing something in there and chase a billion rabbit trails? I saw a picture of a baby rabbit this weekend. His name was Snowball. That was the name of the mouse on "All I Want for Christmas." Don't you just love Christmas?

Where was I?

Ah. Yes. Rabbit trails and quirky brains.

Well, as I am deep into a first draft and have rewrites stacking up, I thought it would be fun for a little brain diversion. So, I am starting a new game (I hope you'll play!)

Each Wednesday on my post, I'll ask you to contribute five words...any five (normal English) words. I in turn will pick someone, take their five words and turn them into a short (under 250 words) story. A little diversion for me, a little tale for you. Sounds fun, yes? (I see you nodding your head.)

Who's in??

Post your five words below and let's see what I come up with!


  1. Coffee, bubble wrap, smiles, pool and cereal.

    Annnnnnnd go!!

  2. Chicago, seal, storm, fingernail, yoga mat
