Thinking on Thursday #4: Don't Think, Just Write


After asking for some advice about the novel I am currently working on, several wonderful writers have more or less told me, "Don't think, just write." I thought it would be fun to include my followers in this new non-thinking approach to writing, so I came up with an idea. Here it is...

Fill in the blanks with the first word that comes to your mind. Don't THINK about it, just read the prompt and fill in the blanks with THE FIRST WORD that pops into your head, regardless of how silly it may sound. Trust me, it will be a much more interesting outcome if you don't over-analyze it :) Just respond to this post with your words and I'll retype and post the finish products later in the week. I can't wait to read them (and hopefully laugh a bit as well).

The  (1)            vampire stared at me and licked his (2)           . There was so much (3)            in his eyes, I had to look away before I (4)           . At that very moment a feeling of (5)            washed over me and I fell to the ground. I heard a (6)            coming from the bushes behind me and took a (7)            glance over my shoulder. Before I could refocus my vision, something tore through the bushes and attacked the vamp. I stopped breathing for a moment after realizing it was a (8)           . It's (9)            were huge and it moved like a (10)           . They were distracted, focused on the fight. I quickly sprang to my feet and ran into the darkness.
