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.
And this week, let’s try to get at least one image in at least one of our plays.
“Compassion is _____.”
I’ll give you an example to get you started:
“Compassion is a stranger’s tears sending one down my own cheek.”
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 Ernie Welch, Pete Smith, Mark Westendorf, Mitch Matthews, Dionne Kumpe, Ken Matthiesen, MW McDonough, Matt Martoccio, Debbie Davidson, Tommy Kib, Elaine Anderson, Barney Coulter, Debbie Convoy, Mark Steven Brocke, Kim Kondrashoff, Joe Slyzelia, Pamela Lack and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #133 (read it here)! Great job!
By the way…
I’m happy that so many of you have gotten value out of my workbook, “Cut/able: Lessons In Market-Smart Songwriting.” Its powerful insights and exercises are helping songwriters like you to craft songs that are more commercial.
But Cut/able can be better.
Through the process of teaching this material since its launch, I’ve come across several things I want to improve about the workbook. As a matter of fact, I’ll be adding a whole new section to the book, entitled (for now) “MVP-O-V: Most Valuable Point-Of-View.” This won’t be the only improvement, though. I’ll add new material to each of the other lessons, too.
Don’t worry, though. Everyone who has already purchased Cut/able will get the upgraded version FOR FREE. (I’ll email it to you when it’s ready.)
But here’s the catch: while I’m rebuilding Cut/able, it won’t be for sale. In fact, the last day that you can purchase Cut/able is Monday, March 22, 2016. After that, it’ll be unavailable until about May, when I relaunch.
So you should buy Cut/able today!
Why? Because today it’s still at it’s normal price. But after the upgrade happens, it’ll cost more.
So if you purchase before the March 22nd cutoff, you’ll get the current version immediately and you’ll also get the upgrade at no extra cost. I’ll send it out on relaunch day. In other words, I’m giving you the opportunity to buy it now before the price goes up.

God Bless and Enjoy the Journey,
