Wordplay Thursday #112

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.

“Freedom is _____.”

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

“Freedom is a clean conscience.” (First one to say “…just another word for nothing left to lose…” loses. That one’s DEFINITELY been taken!)
