Sandbox Challenge #8: A Juicy Jungle Jaunt

jungle path

Write about any kind of journey: a trip to another place, a creative jaunt, an emotional expedition. If you’d like a prompt, start with the phrase “This journey opened my/her eyes to…”

Use some (or all) of these words:

blink, create, sing, purple, juicy, tiny, write, feet, jungle, shut, speculate, amaze, ecstatic, controlled, wheel, moment, disconcerting, dessert, monotonous, melancholy, fixate, consume, beneath, recognize, dangle, sensation, doodle, persistent, tantalizing, conundrum, puncture, gooey

Or, if you prefer, don’t write about a journey. Write about anything at all using some of these words. It can be a sentence, a story, a poem, a rant…

Don’t think too hard about this exercise. Don’t take too long. Don’t be too serious. Feel free to write something very silly. Enjoy the feeling of the words rolling through your mind. Play with the phrases that arise.

Post any creations you’d like to share in the Pile on the Creativity section of the Readers’ Sandbox.

Here’s mine:

I blink awake, recognizing the ecstatic singing of my fixated Muse, a persistent three AM call to create as he dangles my current task in front of my sleepy eyes: to write the tantalizing tale of a man with tiny feet consumed by a jungle of melancholy.
