The Shortform

Day Two of The Shortform Sprint

Random Creativity

For the second day of this challenge, I want you to pick seven random words. You can use a random word generator like this one.

Got them? Great, now write a Shortform story including each and every one of these words. The topic is completely up to you. Just make sure to put the extracted words in italic.

If you want to make it extra hard (and maybe a little funny), you can choose to include the words in the order they were generated.




The Shortform is dedicated to the quick read. If you are looking for some tiny nuggets of knowledge or some easy entertainment, you came to the right place. Specially designed for consuming content when you are short on time or energy.
