Now, on to the Wordplay!

 

Wordplay Thursday

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.

“After the scary movie, I was jumpier than _____.”

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

“After the scary movie, I was jumpier than a 12-year-old on a trampoline.”

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!
