The prompt I tossed out for everyone is from Your First 1,000 Days in Writerspark: One Thousand Tight Writing Exercises, by Bill Weiss. It is:
“Bump. That’s all you get for this one!. Write 100 words or fewer that use the above word as a proper noun, noun and verb all in the same work.”
That one word could evoke a lot of stories. But the image that comes to my mind is this:
Venice High School
The Home of the Mighty Gondoliers
And we could dance anything we wanted….
So it we bumped the Bump
Sometimes we ended up with a lot of bumps so once in a while we did the Hustle.
And let us not forget the Funky Chicken… well, maybe we should forget that.
But my personal favorite was just plain boogeying…….
