And the Word is: BUBBLES


Have you ever tried to create a scene and the words just don't come. There's a wonderful description in your head... but you just can't get it down on paper. Try writing one word associations.
Ex: My bubble descriptions above
Instead of: I watched the bubbles rise as Jim blew them into the air.
I have: The fragile bubbles floated through the air, wispy, shimmery balls of nothing. They danced away from the wand, transient and gone.


Keep writing and rewriting,

Susan

Nice, Susan! This happens to me all the time. Thanks for the exercise.

Oh, and one more: my late mother's best friend in HS and college was called Bubbles. Describing her would be scene all its own.
