Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!
“Nervous is ________.”
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 try to get IMAGERY in at least one of your plays.
“Nervous is __________.”
I’ll give you an example to get you started:
“Nervous is the taste of fingernails.”
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 everyone for your great additions to Wordplay Thursday #149 (read it here)! Great job!
Wordplay is a fun way to kickstart the creative process, but if you REALLY want to get strong ideas- consistently- then I have a great workshop series coming up for you. It runs in August, and it’s called “Song Ideas: From Blank Page To Finished Lyric.”
Andrew went through the course earlier this year, and here’s what he has to say about it. CLICK HERE or on the image below to hear Andrew talk about his experience.
This course is designed to take you from a blank page to a new song idea to a fully developed concept to a finished lyric. You’ll learn a repeatable process you can use to discover and develop strong song ideas again and again. And you’ll also learn how to frame and focus those ideas for maximum commercial impact and appeal.
This course is INTERACTIVE! You won’t sit back and just stare at me talking for an hour-and-a-half each night. You won’t be some number on my laptop’s dashboard. No. We’ll be face-to-face. You’ll have exercises to practice outside of our sessions. I’ll ask you questions. You can ask me questions. We’re in this thing together. That’s why I keep the workshops small- I want to get to know YOU!
Tickets for this event are on sale NOW. There are only a few spots left, and I expect them to go fast- so don’t wait too long and miss your chance to take your songwriting to the next level!
I look forward to seeing you in August- CLICK HERE or on the image below to learn more and reserve your spot now!
God Bless and Enjoy the Journey,
