Words of the week!

I’ve decided that I can’t just sit down and say “YOU’RE NOT SUBMITTING ENOUGH, WAH-WAH!” without doing something myself. Clever, innit?

Ginja (Will Ellwood) suggested linking ToT with his 600 Words project (where you give him a single-sentence pitch and he writes a 600-word (approx.) story based on that) to give people the inspiration to write. That’s when I remembered the video workshops we used to do where I worked back in the day. We would pull three words out of a hat and use those as inspiration for a one-minute short. The results are very diverse and fun, and I thought I could introduce an option for listeners to use three words as inspiration for a story to send in. If they would so wish, of course. I’m not turning the whole podcast into a workshop-only podcast, but it could be another way for people to get cracking on submitting something.

SO! Without further ado, the words!
