Wordplay Thursday #12


Here’s a writing prompt for you.  It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank.  You can use one word or several.  Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want.  The point is to get the creative juices flowing.  And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you.  Try coming up with at least five things.

“She collects  ____ like _____ collects ______.”

I’ll give you one example to get you started:

“She collects cats like tractor pulls collect rednecks.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments.  Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating.  It’s a family show, after all!


Thanks to Willa Thompson, Wally Henderson, Cathy, Doug Folkins, Mike, songwritershowroom, Jim Pollock, Derek Nyberg, Bryan Elliot, Andrew Clayton, Nila Kay, Mark, and Jessica Stewart for their great additions to Wordplay Thursday #11 (read it here)!  Great job!
