Wordplay Thursday #153

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

“We go together like ________ and ________, like ________ and ________.”

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.

Try to get IMAGERY in at least one of your plays- and try to rhyme the 2nd and 4th blanks if you can!

“We go together like ________ and  __________, like ________ and ________.”

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

“We go together like Jack and Coke, like ashes and smoke.”

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!

Adoption August

This month is Adoption August at Songwriting Pro!  The short story is that every penny you spend on the Songwriting Pro store (minus the store’s fees) will go towards bringing two orphans home from China.  Help yourself become a better songwriter while helping two boys join the Baxter family- how cool is that?

God Bless and Enjoy the Journey,
