Scenes From a Hat

My husband is also a writer and he has something pretty cool on his blog. He calls it Scenes From a Hat. What he does is generate 3 random words and then picks one to write about. He also has guest writers that will do a scene as well. I happened to do one.

The cool thing about the Scene From A Hat series is it allows you to go outside your comfort zone. When I picked my word, Restitution, I looked it up and noticed it had two definitions and I wanted to use both forms in my story. I guess you’ll have to read it to let me know if I succeeded. lol I also wanted to do something different. Tap into my darker side I guess you could say. I kind of liked it there and have another story idea brewing about a girl buried alive. Heehee We’ll see how well that goes. I always said I was an eclectic writer. You never know what you’ll get from me.

I enjoyed doing it and requested three more words. I don’t know what I’ll do this time, but it is fun to just let go and make myself really think.

Anthony has a few of his own Scenes From a Hat posted and I know he has had at least one more guest posted and a few waiting in the wings. I’m sure he would be happy if anyone wanted to try their hand at their own Scene From a Hat.
