1. Use the prompt in the way it’s intended (starting a sentence, the title of the piece, theme, etc)
2. You may write in any format you see fit (fiction, non-fiction, poem, song, script, etc.)
This one will work great if you are a student prepping for finals. If not, you may need to use the Google machine.
You will need a vocabulary list. If you have an applicable one, use it. If not, find one. (If needed type something like “Chapter 7 vocabulary” or “Physics vocabulary list” or whatever topic/subject you want).
Take ten words (or more, especially if using a “real” vocab list) and write a poem or short story correctly using the words in context– but don’t be afraid to have fun. Pick a genre and go for it (e.g. the word Totem from your anthropology text can bring on a whole new meaning when she it is worshiped in your trashy romance short)
