Wordplay Thursday #108

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.

“He’s handsome, but more _____ than _____.”

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

“He’s handsome, but more flaky than mama’s biscuits.”

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 Ken Matthiessen, Carol Katterjohn, Jillian Silcox, Linda Keser, Nick, Barney Coulter, Ethan Fogus, Lisa Dewey, Elaine Anderson, Joe Sly and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #107 (read it here)! Great job!
