Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!
I think it’s time to shake things up a little bit here on Wordplay Thursday. I’m sure I’ll go back and do some more of our usual format some weeks, but I want to try out something different. After all, Wordplay IS about creativity, right?
I think a huge part of effective writing, songwriting or otherwise, is wrapping intangible ideas or emotions in imagery. I want you to wrap today’s topic in sensory images. Use any or all of the five senses. How does this idea LOOK, SOUND, SMELL, TASTE, and FEEL?
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 a couple things.
Today’s topic is:
I’ll give you an example to get you started:
“Children lying on a riverside blanket smiling up at July Forth fireworks.”
“A sixteen-year-old girl being handed her brand new driver’s license.”
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!
