Wordplay Thursday #179

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

“A dream 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!

“A dream is  ___________.”

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

“A dream is that song in your head that keeps you up later than the moon and gets you out of bed earlier than the sun.

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,

  1. “A dream is a girl in a tie-dye t-shirt.”

    “A dream is a ride along a coast road with her head on your shoulder.”

    “A dream is slow kiss in a fast car.”

    “A dream is walk in a sleepy little beach town, when all of the tourists have gone back home.”

  2. A dream is……….

    the thick exhale of non-reality’s cigarette, gone up in reality’s smoke.

    the unfinished writings of the best-selling author, Mr. Sandman.

    well-woven fibers by the weaver, that are tightly held by the catcher, and then carried on by the true believer.

    a wheel rolling by that you never saw coming, and still not quite sure where it’s going.

    a meaningful letter sent by the unknown, with no return address and nothing to be shown.

  3. A dream is pie in the sky with no feet in the fire.
    A dream is wishful thinking with no blood and sweat desire .
    Gotta work the plow, run the race, plot and plan and scheme
    To make reality out of a dream

  4. A dream is…
    – wishful sleeping.
    – a horrible thing to waste.
    – a trip down sensory lane.
    – a tuned Telecaster, taking you on a trip down a Texas red dirt
    – a night vision

  5. A dream is the memory of what this love could have been, but now it’s the nightmare of this lonely old house without your love again.
    If only my dreams could come true, the cancer wouldn’t have taken you…

    A Dream Is…

    ….That one day soon, Sopes, Missy, and Randon come back to our Lord.
    ….When Walrus returns to his Alabama timeless child heart.
    ….The dawn’s early light, we stand UNITED!
    ….The glint–in our conscious sleep–of Truth, Life, Way speaking.
    ……not technically a dream, but……

  7. .. is that clear vision of color, logic and reason that leaves with the opening of an eye
    … that beauty who walked by today and said hello.
