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 your plays.
“Our laundry’s piled up like ______.”
(I’ll be honest. This one hits close to home. Anyway….)
I’ll give you an example to get you started:
“Our laundry’s piled up like a stack of overdue bills.”
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 Mitch Matthews, Ken Matthiesen, Nick S, Terry Reynolds, Louis Blanchard, Tommy Kib, Linda Keser, Brandon Tijolo Russ, Jim King, Ty Devine, Nancy Deckant, Todd, Marty McPherson, Joe Slyzelia, and everyone else for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #138 (read it here)! Great job!
Since strong imagery is such an important part of professional-level songwriting, I’ve put together a course on imagery. It’s called, “Use Imagery To Supercharge Your Songwriting (Like The Pros Do)” and it’s available now!
The course guides you as you learn to:
- Effectively use both literal and figurative imagery.
- Make your story come to life using imagery.
- Prove your character’s personality using imagery.
- Make your listener connect to your character’s emotions using imagery.
- Hook your listener in the song’s first few lines using imagery.
- And begin more songs (more easily) using imagery exercises as the start of your songwriting process.
And since we’re all songwriters, that means you might not have the means to pay for the full course right now. Not to worry. I’ve made three packages of the course available. Each one has great, helpful content. Just choose the one that works best for you by CLICKING HERE.
And there is an upcoming LIVE imagery workshop on Tuesday, May 17. Not only does it come with all the course materials, I’ll be there to answer your questions and walk you through some great material not covered in the course!
