Wordplay Thursday #22

cropped-music_row_signs322.jpg

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.

“Without a map, they were as lost as _______.”

I’ll give you two examples to get you started:

“Without a map, they were as lost as an Easter egg on Independence Day.”

“Without a map, they were as lost as a child sitcom star’s chance at a normal life.”

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!

SHOUT OUT!

Thanks to dju316, Roger Vines, Matt Martoccio, Janet Goodman, DPLblog, Willa Thompson, Samary, TopazThyme, MG, Karl Brandt, Paul Alvin Harris, and Julie Malewski for their great additions to Wordplay Thursday #21 (read it here)! Great job!

      1. No worries! Btw I’m among the others that has not received a confirmation email when trying to subscribe(?). I checked my spam filter, etc. Regardless, great blog.

  6. I registered about 10:00pm on 10/22. I entered my email address 2 or 3 times and then again this morning and no I haven’t received any emails from this blog. To be certain, I also registered through ReverbNation and did receive a confirmation email for that list.

    1. Well, dang. Sorry Steven (and whoever else). I’m pasting the text below from WordPress. Maybe one of these tips will work.

      Troubleshooting

      If you or your reader is having trouble signing up to follow a blog, or isn’t receiving email updates, you can try these to fix the problem.

      Check your spam/junk email box. If you have an option to unblock specific email addresses, try allowing *@wordpress.com (all emails from the domain) and/or no-reply@wordpress.com addresses.

      Make sure you to uncheck the box next to “Block all email updates from WordPress.com blogs you follow” on your Email Delivery Settings page.

      Double-check that you have confirmed your request to follow. You can view all of the blogs and comment threads you’re following on your Read Blogs page (if you have a WordPress.com account), or at subscribe.wordpress.com (if you don’t have any account but are following WordPress.com blogs).
