Buzz Goes the Word

Allow a single word to inspire a longer piece of writing.

Fancy a little word game to get those creative juices flowing? Then how about a little game I like to call Buzz Goes the Word.

It's simple. Choose a word from the following list of 10 words. Write the first thing that comes into mind when you think of that word. Is it an emotion? Is it a place? Is it a person, situation, object, colour? Is it a memory, or a dream you thought you'd forgotten?

Write as little or as much as you like. It could be one sentence, it could be one paragraph, or a whole chapter of writing. Let the word do the talking!

When you're done, write down 10 more 'buzz words' for the next person! And so on and so forth.

Oh, and each set of buzz words must have something in common! For example, the words could be 10 different animals.
