Happy Saturday blogosphere writercizers!
We're just past the halfway point in the A to Z Challenge, and I believe everyone involved could use a nice little break this lovely Saturday, so I'm bringing back a previous exercise with new words.
Growing up, I can remember teachers using a very simple icebreaker to fill time on the bus for field trips or indoor recess days. In the game, teachers would say a word, and students would free associate the next word that came to mind. It's an interesting study on how your mind makes connections and relationships between ideas.
writing exercise: Look at the list of words below and type your instinctual response to each word. Feel free to simply state the next word or evaluate your response.
