Same Same But Different

Sarah is our hostess for the Saturday Mix variable challenges.  Check it out here
This week we are diving into the depths of our thesaurus and exploring the world of synonyms.
Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words are:

  1. sweater
  2. leg
  3. ride
  4. rock
  5. show

The jumper I chose
was red, black, and green
It matched my black pants
you know what I mean.
The gam of my pants
while green on one side
was black on the other;
my fat calf it did hide.
We went for a tour
this fine Sunday morn
to see if our neighbors
were still feeling forlorn.
The gravel we walked on
was loose and quite sharp
I wore the wrong shoes
but I don’t like to harp
So instead I displayed
my most jovial side
And continued my walk
my love at my side.

Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 01/18/2022


Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:


*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!

Sunday Poser # 63

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

Sadje is the host!

Well, the best answer would be to complete my blogging schedule on the days they are scheduled for! Hahaha! A day late is better than never…..

It’s not so much that I forget the same thing on a regular basis but what I do forget is to write myself notes because I always forget to remind myself of stuff. For example, I have crazy weird dreams sometimes. I have been meaning to put a notepad by the bed so that I can write down the names of the people I dream about. I mean the other night I had a dream about one of my close friends and her mother. I don’t even remember thinking about her per say recently. But often people from my past pop into my dreams and I am surprised that they were part of my dream. I just thought it would be neat to keep track of the people over a longer length of time. Strange, I know but….

The Sunday Whirl: Wordle #536

Find it here: https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2022/01/16/wordle-536/

Right outside my bedroom

A cloud goes flying by

It doesn’t even stop here

It doesn’t see my blues cry

It goes right past the raven

With wings so black like rocks

It flows with trepidation

Fisted hands on a cuckoo clock

It tries to speak a language

That anyone can hear

To tell you how to live your life

what to eat and what to wear

But like clouds must keep moving

In a circle around the globe

This story blends some fables

Some young and some are old

So slide on out your window

And reach out far and wide

The clouds just keep on coming

Like a friend right by my side.

A New Day

From my window I could see the water lapping upon the shore, hear the surf hitting the land, smell the salty water. I was here to relax, to enjoy time by myself, to take time to reflect upon the last year that held so many feelings and memories. So I sat. I watched the water move by itself. I thought of all the days I have lived, the people who I have loved, and the things I have done. There is some regret and some sadness but today is the day I will open my eyes to a new beginning.

Three Things Challenge #843

Hosted by Di! https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/01/14/three-things-challenge-843/

Your final three words for this week are:
ENTER
EXIST
EXPIRE

Hope

Once upon a time I existed
in a world where there never saw pain
but now in the life that I’m living
I refuse to live life feeling vain
Instead I love the world all around me
I enter with a curious mind
Life can expire so quickly
I enjoy every last minute I find.

Three Things Challenge #841

Di is the host of Three Things!

Your three words today are:
CRAFT
COUSIN
CRASH

It wasn’t anything
newer than before
my cousin just arrived
standing at my door
she had a magic bag
that hung from up her arm
she crafted it with fabric
some string and then some yarn
she said she needed help
a place for her to crash
her husband kicked her out
it was her nasty rash.
