Wordplay Thursday #104

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to 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.

“That shirt’s as ugly as _____.”

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

“That shirt’s as ugly as an “F” on a report card.”

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!

And thanks to Tommy Kib, Linda Keser, Buddy Lewis, Ken Matthiesen, Jeff Green, Mark Westendorf, Jim and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #103 (read it here)! Great job!

Would you like the opportunity to ask YOUR questions to the songwriter of Kelsea Ballerini’s #1 hit, “Love Me Like You Mean It?”  I’m hosting a special “KNOW THE ROW” web videoconference with one of the songwriters, Lance Carpenter on August 25!  I’ll be asking him my questions, and he’ll also be answering YOUR questions!

In just 4 years in Nashville, Lance has landed both a publishing deal and a #1 single- he’s someone we call ALL learn from!  There are only a few spots left for this intimate, live event, so don’t delay!  Click on the image below, or CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE AND TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR A CONVERSATION WITH LANCE CARPENTER!

God Bless,

Brent
