Wordplay Thursday #14


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.

“If you want love, ______.”

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

“If you want love, let go of fear.”

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 Andrew Clayton, Cathy, Johnny Guest, Sabrina, heardbyateacher, ajarnderek, britneepowell22, Wally Henderson, Mark, and Steve for their great additions to Wordplay Thursday #13 (read it here)!  Great job!
