My heart bursts its banks, spilling beauty and goodness. I pour it out in a poem to the king, shaping the river into words. (Psalm 45:1)

TOTM November: We Are All Different: Let's Prove It!

Many new writers are reluctant to share their story ideas in case someone else will steal them and write them up themselves. Yet I'm sure you will agree that we're all different. Given the same situation, we would all write the story differently.

For this month, let's have some fun and prove our differences. I have selected ten words using a Random Word Generator . My challenge to you is to write a short short story using all of these words in any order.

  1. Trusting 
  2. Luggage 
  3. Rotten 
  4. Delirium 
  5. One way
  6. Tedious 
  7. Diploma 
  8. Refreshment
  9. Trudged
  10. Relentless
Paste your story in a comment below and let's see what develops over the month.
