Fifteen Word Stories are great little ways to get the creative juices flowing, because you have to be extremely specific about words you choose. You can’t get caught up in flowery over-wording explanations, and you certainly do not get to have tons of filler words.
I use these when I am brain-blocked (my term for writer’s block) or when I’m too distracted by life to really sink my teeth into writing a full chapter about something.
Give it a try, and you might be surprised how much imagination springs from only fifteen words!
