Three Words, One Story is a writing journal, of sorts. It allows writers to practice their craft, get inspired, encourage friends, or just write with no consequences. The site features weekly short fiction influenced by three random words.
Each week, we’ll provide a noun, a verb, and an adjective randomly chosen from the seemingly endless sea of the English language. Writers take these three words and craft a story around them. What should the story be about? You decide. The three words should be present in the story, but the writer determines how they are used and how it leads the story.
The words are for inspiration, not restriction.
We post the results the next week, and occasionally there will even be a contest where readers can vote for the best story of the week. But the real point is to help writers just start writing. Maybe it’s a cure for writer’s block. Maybe it’s a way to brainstorm new ideas that can be expanded on later. Maybe it’s just a way to kick back and see where the words take you. Whatever it is, just write.
