Fun and Games


No, we will not be playing dodge ball on this playground. I hate that game. I always ended up taking a ball to the face and walking around the rest of the day with the waffle imprint from the red rubber on my cheek. Can you say humiliation? I can.
We're going to play a writing game of course! I'm going to shamelessly steal an excellent idea from Ms. Snark (because ideas aren't copyrighted). I'm going to list several words and/or phrases below. Write me a scene with all, some or a few of the items from said list. Make it as emotional, humorous, dark or seductive as you'd like. There is a scoring system. There are prizes. 500 words submitted by 6 PM CST to instigator@writingplayground.com. I can't wait to read what everyone comes up with. Even if you don't consider yourself a writer please try it. It can be very fun to let your imagination run wild. You'll see.

For a while, AC insisted the title of that book was "The Lion, The Witch and the Warthog."

Instigator will you be posting any of these so we can all enjoy them? Or are these for your own amusement?

I'd like to - only with permission from the author of course. But I need some more entries :-) What, did I scare everyone away? Honestly, this is supposed to be fun :-)

I had a late night last night with the revisions followed by an early wake-up call for an orthodontist appointment and also my annual mammogram, so I conked out shortly after lunch and just woke up when the DH called and reminded me we were supposed to go to the garden center and look at some plants.

Cute idea. I had to laugh at "the lion, the witch and the wardrobe malfunction" too.

It's pathetic when your teenager reads your cute story hopefully filled with irony and points out the mistakes. UGH!

Feeling a little wilted.
