One Word

This is an interesting excercise in creative writing. One word is supplied and you have 60 seconds to write all you can about it. It turned out to be quite a challenge for me.

I really like that.
We've had to do something similar in my Spanish writing class--I think it's a really cool exercise and can reveal a lot about you.

Piece of cake for me. I even have a trophy for doing the same thing with the spoken word (impromptu speaking). It occured to me I have made my way in life through words, so I welcome such trials....

It was fun - thanks.

I did this improvison game once. The deal was we were four to talk about an topic as if one, which would say one of us would talk and then some other would take over during the same sentence. there was a fifth person to deside who was going to talk when, and he wasn´t nice! Those who first lost count or starter wrongly or just didn´t have more to talk about would loose. The others would decide a way for him/her to die and s/he had to imitate this death. It could get real funny as the death could occur with the help of a pin or needle, or deck or whatever. It was up to the person "dying" to decide how to die of these causes.
