Wordplay Thursday #151

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

“Her kiss sent his heart racing like ________.”

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.

“Her kiss sent his heart racing like __________.”

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

“Her kiss sent his heart racing like the last lap at Talladega.

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 #150 (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.”

Blank 2 Finished

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!

    1. Her kiss sent his heart racing …

      like a jaguar in the night
      like the first time he touched a girl
      like a Fireball after a fight
      like a race horse rounding the curve

      like a Heron rising in flight
      like the man who walked on the moon
      like the first time he saw God’s light,
      when he stepped into the girl’s locker room

      like a shy girl, at a high school dance
      when a boy with a Hot Rod took her by the hand
      like his Daddy felt, when his Mama smiled
      looked him in the eye and said I’m having your child

      Her kiss sent his heart racing
      so fast and strong and sure
      he didn’t understand the feelings that hit him
      but he knew they were simple and pure …

      He got down on his knees, said, bear with me please
      this is a spell I’ve never been under
      you make me feel things, my heart has springs
      but I don’t want to run for cover

      It makes no sense, but neither does love
      I’m casting all reason aside
      would you be my baby, my friend and my lover
      my partner, and my pride?
      and after you consent to being my baby,
      baby would you be my bride?

    – it was running for the roses
    – Dale at Daytona
    – a rocket for the moon
    – a tuna on a hook
    – water over Niagara

  3. Her kiss sent his heart racing like a banjo playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown.

    Her kiss sent his heart racing like a taser to the chest.(but in a good way☺)
    Her kiss sent his heart racing like a dog’s tail at supper time.
    Her kiss sent his heart racing like a quart of Cuban coffee.

    1. a QUART of Cuban? That would make my heart explode! And I was married to a Cubana for 11 years! HAHA!

      I had 4 or 5 at Miami airport once due to flight delays. I’m certain that lady that sat next to me MIA to IAH still talks about the very fast talking and profusely sweating Cajun man she sat next to on that one flight.. HAHA!

      Great one!

      The banjo one made me visualize a Duke Boys getting out of a place they were snooping around.

  4. Her kiss sent his heart racing like wildfire across the savannah when it’s high and dry season.

  5. Her kiss sent his heart racing like____
    a pony runnin’ through the rain
    Lightening through a midnight sky

  6. … like a metronome on steroids
    … like baseball cards on on a spinning wheel ( for the old timers who clipped cards on their bicycle wheels )
    … like a fishing reel with a bass taking line
    … like a top before it drops
