A. J. Walker is on a blog book tour and has lent his goblin Kip to join in our Hump Day Improvisation fun. Thanks A. J.
Hello! I’m Kip Itxaron, a goblin who’s seen far too much of the world. I’m the heroine of Roots Run Deep, a fantasy novel published by Double Dragon. I used to be a reformed thief, a lousy gambler, and a mediocre sorceress before I ended up liberating my people. That didn’t improve my ability at magic, though, or my luck at gambling. You can find out more about me and my book at my author’s blog.
Today I’m doing the Hump Day Improv while Nancy takes a day off. Humans are lazy. That’s why they make us do all the menial work. Want me to clean your toilet once this is done, Nancy? Yeah, I thought you did.
Take a look at this 16th century painting by Giuseppe Arcimboldo called The Librarian. The painter was famous for doing portraits of people made from fruit, fish, the four elements, and in this case books. Imagine a character meeting this fellow for the first time and write his or her reaction. Let your imagination run wild. I ended up falling for a pasty-faced human with no tusks, so if you can make this a “love at first sight” situation I’ll be doubly impressed!
I’ll give my own contribution after a few of yours are up. Have fun!
You can't get more fun than this everyone. So write your sentences and then visit A. J. Walker. I'll just relax and enjoy my clean bathroom.
