Hello!
Ni hao!
Bok!
Ahoj!
Goddag!
Hallo!
...and welcome to Avoiding Writer's Block!

Has that nasty little monster, Writer's Block, ever grabbed hold of you and won't let go? If you're a writer, the answer is most definitely "yes". Well, this is one way, besides pepper spray and violence, to make the little rascal go away.

Instructions: Below, you will see three columns: Who, What, and Why. You are going to:
1) Pick a letter from column "Who".
2) Pick a number from column "What".
3) Pick a color from column "Why."
4) Choose a piece type: poem or short story
5) Open the spoiler and see your results!
6) Write that nasty Writer's Block away!
7) Post your piece here or PM it to me, I'd love to see it!

Spoiler! :
Who:
A: Jimmy, cashier at Quik-Mart
B: Ronaldo, noble prince of Herbeshire
C: Britney, a gum-smackin', chemical-blond valley girl
D: Eddy Navaro, Australian pop-star
E: Mary Ross, a lawyer.
F: Campbell Jordan, an inmate at Ramos City Jail.
G: Katie Weathers, a tough-ridin' cowgirl! Yee-haw!

What:
1: must save Joe/Josephine, the prince/princess of Lakethsburg. (depends on gender of MC)
2: gets a job as a dental assistant
3: gets committed to a mental ward
4: tries to learn kung-fu
5: goes on a diet
6: becomes stranded at the zoo with the monkeys
7: has to safely land an airplane

Why:
red: because their hair catches fire
orange: because their aunt Barbara tells them to
yellow: because they try to impress a girl/boy
green: because they feel like it
blue: because they failed a test
indigo: because they forgot their glasses
violet: because they find out that Santa doesn't exist


NOTE:
Yes, you can just pick from the spoiler if you want to, but where's the fun in that? The whole point of this is to be random and funny.

I hope you enjoy! And please, post your finished piece to this thread or PM it to me! I really want to see what you come up with! Happy writing! Yours, Pen
