Wordplay Thursday #172

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

“Mothers are __________ and daughters are __________.”

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!

“Mothers are __________ and daughters are  ___________.”

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

“Mothers are kisses on boo-boos and daughters are kisses on babydoll booboos.”

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 generate new song ideas- and who doesn’t need more song ideas?  If you’d like an inside look at the techniques I use to find song idea after song idea- ideas that YOU can use, too- I have just thing for you!


God Bless and Enjoy the Journey,
