Lots of kids have been doing the #storymarch art project since it started March 16. It seemed like it would be fun to have a writing project too, so here's #StoryMarchWrite! Each day, you write something based on the one-word prompts below. 

Your writing can include the day's word or be inspired by it. The only other rule is that each day's piece of writing needs to connect to the previous day's piece in some way. At the end, you might have a story, or a journal, or a poem or book of poems, or almost anything. It's not necessary to share your work online, but if you do, please tag it with #storymarch and #storymarchwrite. Have fun!

We'll put up a new list of words every Monday, with a different theme every week.
