Wordplay Thursday #107

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 kid has more energy than _____.”

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

“That kid has more energy than a jackrabbit on crack.”

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 Matt Martoccio, Tommy Kib, Ken Matthiessen, Theresa, Carol Katterjohn, Janet Goodman, Ethan Fogus, Barney Coulter, Linda Keser, Tiffany Carlen, Nick S, Rick Hickman, Chris H, Jillian Silcox and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #106 (read it here)!
