If you want something more challenging, though, make 3 lists:
3. problem/situation (emotional, mental, physical predicament)
Randomly select a combination from your 3 lists…then set the timer and just write and write for 10 minutes. When your timer goes off, breathe a sigh of relief, and enjoy a hot cup of tea…but if you’re on a roll, keep going with your story.
An example…hmm… how about 1. location: a log cabin deck in the Appalachian mountains 2.person: a financial analyst 3. problem: no more donuts!
