Pick a word you don't know. Find a dictionary (online or not), pick a letter and read down the lists of words until something unusual and unknown comes up. Now write ad adventure for yourself based on the word you pick and it's meaning. Make sure you use the word once and then write around it, showing the meaning so that no one reading your work would have to look up that word. Make the meaning clear through use of your story telling ability.
Inspired by Situation Sunday. You're driving down a winding, stone road through a deep forest. It's beautiful. Now and then you stop for photos of wildflowers and wildlife. It begins to rain, first a drizzle, misty rain which makes the forest look like something out of a fantasy story. By the time you realize the rain has become a real downpour you're soaked through and it's not quite so magical and glamourous to be taking wildflower photos outside now. Back in the car it's warm, the heat is on and windows aren't too fogged up as you dry off. The road should be coming to the midway point soon. Around the next corner or two you expect to see the fancy resort with a deluxe hotel, restaurants and spa. But, somehow you must have missed a turn cause you're driving and driving but the resort is just not showing up. The rain is steady, getting harder to see the road through the trees. A couple of guys are sitting in a truck on the side of the road. The back of their beat up pick up is full of wood. Must be some of the resort staff out cutting firewood. You pull off the road and go over to ask for directions. One of them rolls down his window and suddenly you get a feeling... not a good feeling. What do you do? You could really use some help with the directions and what are the chances that these guys are going to be anything but a couple of county folk out for some wood?
You've been sucked into a fantasy role playing game, online. It's a lot different when you're not at the keyboard. Inside the game you can't log out. Luckily the character you had created was already experienced, had pretty decent armour and a sack full of healing potions. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to keep running for your life, as you are right now. There is an ogre troll chasing you. He is huge, wears chains on the end of his wrists. Likely he had been chained up somewhere but escaped. Up ahead you see two doorways. One seems to lead into a dank cave which doesn't look too cheerful to say the least. The other door leads into a tunnel full of pink mist. Pink mist has long been known to signify dragon's breath. Which doorway do you take? Pick one quick that tall, dark and less than handsome ogre troll is catching up to you.
Plan your ideal town to move to and then live in. Is it suburban, rural or urban? Is it focused on having public services or dedicated to the arts? Is it going green? Are there huge industrial parks or huge shopping malls? So many choices and so much to plan for a working town. Now, once you've planned it out and had fun... what will you name your town? Don't settle for something easy like your name. Go for the gold.
