Every writer needs a starting point.
This was an assignment that I had given to my English class. To develop story ideas using the vocabulary words from their unit list. I believe that it is a great way to create a supply of first lines for a short story.
This is what I developed for the word “DICTION.”
D: Dimes are not my favorite things.
I: Igloos made from Jell-O can be eaten.
C: Cooking hamburgers with a magnifying glass can be time consuming.
T: Tom wrote out the list on his thumb.
I: Inside a watermelon you will find seedy characters.
O: October starts with the letter O.
N: Noodles in your pocket are a great snack.
What first lines could you develop using the word DICTION?
