Play the Wikipedia Game. If you've never played, this is how: You have two words, a starting word and a finishing word. These "words" can be anything that has it's own wiki page. For example, your starting word can be "persian cat" and your ending word can be "mocha." You go to the wiki for starting word (i.e. persian cat) and by only clicking on links on the wiki page (e.g. on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persian_cat you will see the linked words "cat fancy") you must end up at your second word, in this case, "mocha." Usually, you play this with another person and see who can get from word 1 to word 2 the fastes. It's fun, but since it's only you, write a story, poem, song, or any other form expression using words using the words from the links you clicked to get from your starting word to your final word. P.s the example I'm showing you is actually just the link to the persian cat wiki page.

The Wiki Game from Prayer Beads to Bowling

I wrote a random story using the linked words from the Wiki pages. I started with the word “Prayer Bead” and my goal was to get to “Bowling”. Harder than I thought it would be, but fun to write the story.
