Wordplay Thursday #167

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

“Christmas 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!

“Christmas is  ________.”

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

“Christmas is posing for grandma’s camera in the matching red turtlenecks she bought for all us grandkids.”

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!

Wordplay Thursday is a fun way to strengthen your “imagery muscle.”  If you’d like an inside look at a bunch of techniques I use to find and use great imagery in my songs- techniques that YOU can use, too- I have just thing for you!  (But this opportunity won’t last long- so check it out now!)


God Bless and Enjoy the Journey,

  1. Christmas is the day Christ was born.
    Forget long lines and crowded stores.
    Let’s bow our heads and give thanks.
    Rejoice in the lord. We are saved!

  2. what one makes of it…

    a frame of mind that should be consistent with practice & thought through out the 365 days of the year.

    supposed to be a time of joy & happiness…which isn’t always the case…

    for children.

    for me…Alistair Sim’s portrayal of Scrooge…when he wakes the next up morning from his visits with the 3 spirits from the night before…his happiness is so infectious…that even if one tried to deny it…it’s simply impossible…you cannot help but feel the same new found joy & happiness such as Scrooge did that Christmas morning so many years ago…

    Merry Christmas every one!
