It would be so fun to see how different our stories would be and to see where our imaginations would take us.
I am going to do a short story today to spark my creativity as I have so many projects I want to do I am not sure where to start. I need to get the creativity brewing!
I went online to Creative Random Word Generator and generated the following 4 words.
da da duh [Law & Order music] Here is my story*:
I am 43 years old and I travel everywhere on a skateboard. Many people believe that I am way too old to travel by skateboard, but I think they are just jealous of my hot pink skateboard with electric blue glitter stars with rad color changing light up wheels.
I believe they have a paranoia that my eclectic and carefree style will corrupt the masses and soon everyone will be doing crazy and fun things. Oh, the horror! Pssh, I think it would do some people good to lighten up and do something crazy fun.
The other day I was skateboarding in the park and I saw this sweet handrail and I decided to attempt a railslide. I had never done this before, but I had seen it done on TV many times; so really, how hard could it be? I made the jump and got myself and the skateboard on the rail and things were going fab until I lost my balance and went ass over tea kettle on the sidewalk.
I laid there quite awhile looking up at the puffy white clouds, and brilliant blue sky until the stars swimming before my eyes went away. I slowly began to take inventory of my body parts to make sure they were all still working. I had only taken inventory of one arm from fingers to shoulder, when I felt something wet on my back. At that moment I decided that my body inventory could wait until I figured out what I was lying on. Eww! Eww! Eww! I landed in a wad of spit! I would have rather have broken a bone then landed in spit!
I quickly picked myself up and dusted myself off. I only had minor scrapes and bruises and for my 1st attempt at railsliding that was not too shabby! I decided that in the future I should do a little more research on skateboarding techniques before attempting them for the first time.
