The Kitchen List

I made a list of ten things I could see in my kitchen. You can use my list (below) or make your own list of ten things found in a room of your house.

My Kitchen List

1. toaster oven
2. bagels
3. cookie jar
4. scrub brush
5. paper towels
6. blender
7. Bart Simpson potholder
8. Smiley drinking glass
9. Disinfectant spray
10. soft-white light bulbs

Use the ten items in a story, screenplay scene, paragraph, or any other writing form that pleases you to do one or more of the following:

Play a practical joke
Create a spy thriller
Commit a murder
Help a woman have a baby
Prolong a life (until help arrives)
Make a science project
Steal something
get revenge
prove someone's innocence
weave into an episode of your favorite TV show

The challenge, of course, is that you must use all ten objects. You can add as many other objects or people or situations or conditions that you like, it is your writing, after all. But those ten specific items MUST be used. They can be crucial elements or simple things woven into your story. But they must be used. All of them.
