This is one of my favourites as you can never tell what it will inspire.
Pick up the book that’s closest to hand. Go to page one hundred.
Make a note of the first and last words on the page.
Now, on a sheet of paper, put each word at the top and divide the page into two columns.
Use the timer for five minutes each side and using each word as a beginning, write down as many words as you can think of.
Once you’ve done that, write a story by using the first two words you took from the book to start with and then incorporating all the other words as you go.
