Twisted Blurbs - The Writing Warmup Game

Here’s a game for anyone and everyone looking to flex what little brain cells they might be saving for a career in writing. The rules? Super simple.

Make a fictional blurb, 3-5 sentences with the best punch you can throw - and the following components:

  1. The name of your fictional character
  2. A description
  3. The occupation they have found themselves in.
  4. A twist
