Flashback to Word Play

For Fandangos Flashback Friday I went back to this date in 2020 and saw this post about playing with words.  I decided to run it again because as I went through my post I saw some great stand alone ideas for some Halloween stories- how cool is this? Revisiting our posts is a great idea- shout out to Fandango for running this  Prompt!

This Fun Creative Writing Exercise Will Change Your Life 

Playing With Words 

First published on September 29th 2020

Fun creative writing prompt- you choose one word and then another word and  you keep going and you’re not supposed to care where you go, the words don’t even have to go together.

However I started with cemetery and went to popsicles and bits and pieces of a day at work came back to me, so I improvised. But that’s what being creative is all about!

This was a fun prompt-follow the link above and give it a try.




crunchy leaves

dogs on leashes

who is in that car

Cherry blossoms are gone

crows dancing on graves

she shot herself at dawn

by the reflection pond

Marble cats, granite angels

the caretaker’s cottage

is full of empty coffins.

(Playing With Sounds and Words )






angry teeth fighting

behind bloodless lips

kiss me when I’m angry

do I taste like pennies or nickels?
