Embrace Randomness

If you are looking for a prompt, try using random words and images to generate thoughts. Lots of these work best by setting an arbitrary timer.

  • Use a random word generator and work off two or three of the generated words.
  • Generate a random image and write an ekphrastic response. (Unsplash is good for this)
  • Open a book to a random page. Use a sentence or phrase as the first line for your writing

You can also use randomness for editing. n+7 is a technique that embraces the change and the unusual.
