Story Starters: Unusual Words

Hey, everyone!

Another post in the category of “Story Starters” today. These are all words that exist, but until recently, I had no idea of. So have fun, guys! 😀

The Challenge: Write a story or poem using, or centering around, one of these words.

The Advanced Challenge: Write a story or poem with two or more of these words!

This should especially be relatable to us writers who stay up late finishing something…















I think my favorite was that last one. But oh, gosh… petrachor…. I love that scent so much. 🙂 ❤

Which word is your favorite? What story ideas do you have for these words?

Please comment and tell me!

Also, if you write a story based on these, link it in the comments and I’ll add a link below that picture.

Have fun with it!

  1. Defenestrate is ABSOLUTELY my all-time-favorite word, and my favorite thing to do to villains, too! (Used to be my favorite thing to do to ’em was to tie them to trees and use them for target practice with rubber suction cup arrows and Silly String, or tar-and-feather practice, but that’s another story entirely…)
    Hiraeth is a good one. Definitely doing one with that. BECAUSE THE ANGST. Mwahahahahah. (I’m a public menace, did I mention that? :-P) Anyway, the Character Profile Five is up on my blog. 😉

  2. Oh my gravy DEFENESTRATION!!!!! *laughing* That’s hilarious. (And it also made me think of a Sherlock scene I saw. “He fell out of a window…” *later* “How many times did he fall out of a window?” “I don’t know. I lost count.”)

  3. Reblogged this on writinganyone and commented:
    To celebrate Writefury’s second blogiversary (which was *ahem* a few days ago), I’m reblogging one of my favorite posts (though they’re all great!). After this, I had a few new favorite words. XD

    Enjoy! And if you do do this, put a link in the comments!!
