Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

“I feel as lucky as __________.”

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!

“I feel as lucky as ________.”

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

“I feel as lucky as a man on his honeymoon.”
