Special challenge: to improve writing technique;

This challenge is designed to force you to write higher wordcounts; Using the Word Of The Day Archive, pick any month of any year (except the current one which is incomplete), pick any word on the list, and write at least 1,000 words (and don't keep switching months; make do with what you pick and like it! :P). Don't worry about rambling, or whether it's just rubbish, the idea is just to pump out some kind of high wordcount!

If you repeat this challenge with another word, you must beat your previous wordcount, whatever it was.

-

One-word theme. Code

-

A selection of words to include in the fic. Use as many as you like, but as many as possible!

( spoon, ruler, long, ear, waste, bump, hose, bedroom, street, miscellaneous, father, dress, history, staircase, servant, weak, tail, jar, clue, fruit, talents, introduce, epidemic, writing, cottage, numerous, humility, outline, dream, tragedy. )

-

Specific Challenge; CROSSOVERS! Using the three fandoms picked by random numbers, you must insert each (if possible) into an entirely different fandom's universe (does not have to be one of the three you are picked unless you want to try it!); the countries, the politics, the culture, but generally not the characters - not MAIN characters (example: inserting various characters from a fandom into a Never-Ending Story universe WITHOUT Bastian, because it was HIS story, but the Child-like Empress you'd get away with ;) In Hobb!verse you'd get away with dragons and Elderlings, but not referencing Fitz, the Fool, Burrich, Molly, etc).

-

(Unofficial) Quotes; (Use these to inspire your work, include them if you wish, in narrative, as spoken word, whatever!)

Lyrics as inspiration; (because I heart them!)

It's on your mind
But you can't say it
It's in your eyes
But you can't see it
It's on your wrist
But you can't time it
It's off the top of year head
But you can't wear it

It's in your face
It's in your hands
It's in the air
But you can't breath it
You're not the one I used to know
Gone to your head

It's up your nose
But you can't snort it
It's down your throat
But you can't suck it
It's on your lap
But you can't have it
it's in your reach
But you can't grab it

And what if I said
It's in your head
You're not the one I used to know
And what if I said
It's in your head
You're not the one I used to know
Gone to your head

Gone To Your Head By Zeromancer
