Word crawl/Alice in Wonderland Crawl
You are Alice, sitting on the riverbank, listening to your sister read from a book about William I, whose reign began in 1066 AD. You grow bored, so write 1066 words as quickly as you can.
You spot the White Rabbit, who is very late for an important date. His watch says 5 o’clock so set your stopwatch for 5 minutes, and write as much as you can.
You chase the White Rabbit, following him into a rabbit hole, where you fall down, down, down. Write to the nearest thousand as you fall down the rabbit hole.
When you get to the bottom, you see the White Rabbit race through a tiny door, which you can’t fit through. The doorknob tells you to drink from a little bottle marked “DRINK ME.” After you drink it, you turn so tiny that you can’t reach the key to the door, which is on a normal sized table. Write 400 words to find a solution.
A cookie marked “EAT ME” appears. You eat it and grow so big that you fill the entire room. Time for a big sprint of 30 minutes. After all that, you are crying so hard your tears fill the room – though the doorknob tells you to drink again from the bottle. You fall into the bottle and sail away in a river of your own tears through the doorknob’s keyhole and into Wonderland. You see the Dodo, running the caucus race, where inhabitants of Wonderland race until they are dry. Race to the nearest hundred words.
Tweedledum and Tweedledee block your path to tell you the story of The Walrus and the Carpenter, The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things – of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kiiiiings. Pick one of those things.
For shoes, sprint to the nearest thousand.
For ships, think of your favorite fandom ship, add up the number of letters in the characters’ first names (for example Bella and Edward is 11, while Harry and Hermione is also 13) and multiply that number by 50. Write that many words.
For sealing wax, let the dice seal your fate -- roll a standard six-sided die. Multiply that number by 100, and write that many words.
For cabbages, write 250 words
For kings, try the Fifty Headed Hydra.
You come to the White Rabbits house, where you eat another one of those “EAT ME” cookies, growing so big that you fill the rabbit’s whole house. Time for another big 30 minute sprint while they smoke the monster out.
You eat a carrot and shrink down to the size of an insect – do a tiny, 5 minute sprint.
You meet a garden of enchanted flowers, who sing the song Golden Afternoon. Sprint for ten minutes while you convince the flowers that you aren’t a weed.
“Wooo…R…U?” The hookah smoking caterpillar asks. He gives you a bit of mushroom, which returns you to your usual size. Sprint to the nearest thousand words to return to an even number.
You meet the Cheshire Cat, who directs you to the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Dormouse at their Mad Tea Party. In honor of the price tag still affixed to the Mad Hatters chapeau (10/6) sprint for 10 minutes, then sprint for 6.
A Very Merry Unbirthday to YOU! Take your birth month (1 for January, 2 for February, etc.) and multiply that by 100. Write that many words.
You get lost in the Tulgey Wood. Don’t step on the Mome Raths – try to write 100 words without a typo.
The Cheshire Cat appears again, directing you to the hedge maze where the Queen of Hearts wants you to play croquet with her. 500 words or off with your head!
The Queen of Hearts puts you on trial – a five minute sprint while you think up a good case should do the trick.
You take a bite of the caterpillar’s mushroom, growing to a giant size so you can yell at the Queen of Hearts. Roll a six-sided die, multiply that number by 100 and write that many words.
After you shrink back down to your usual size, the Queen of Hearts sentences you to death. You flee, pursued by many of the inhabitants of Wonderland, all the way back to the door knob. Sprint for 10 minutes as you flee.
The doorknob convinces you that it was all a dream, and you wake up again on the riverbank, with your sister. You and your sister happily walk home for tea. Take a much deserved tea break from writing!
