Wednesday Words for First Week of November

Welcome to yet another site of Wednesday Words!  There have been some gifted writers who have provided challenging words to bloggers who would like to try something different!

First some history: Delores at Under the Porch Light started this meme ages ago but her computer rebelled.

River caught the ball and continued, 
until passing it off to Elephant’s Child.  

Some wonderful volunteers supported this excellent site:

 Jacqueline atRandomosity;   Susan at the most…of every moment; and,   Margaret Adamson and friend Sue. 


I will be tossing out some words for you to play and enjoy in the month of November.  Here they go:

depart
lick
register
free
text
shout
AND/OR
avenue
cower
charismatic
swim
fold
notebook
OR
Try this sentence prompt:

The horse came back alone.



I hope you'll think about these words and prompt.  You may even leave your written response in the comment section here.  Or, if you wish, post your writing on your blog and link it back to this site.  That's the only way we can find you!

  3. For the first time, I will think about them, but will probably keep the result to myself. For now. It will be another good way to reach back and try to find my creativity.

    1. Oh, I hope so! I loved the sentence prompt, because there were so many possibilities. Please let me know how it goes.

  4. Trigger was annoyed. All day long the whip descended on his flanks, the spurs dug in. When they came to the high fence at the great estate a light flickered in Triggers brain. The whip descended. Trigger balked. The horse came home alone.

    2. I hope Trigger dumped him good and proper, or for good.

  5. The sentence is haunting.
    The horse came back alone. At least he came back. If only his rider would. Or could...

    1. You handle this with such few sentences, meaningful ones.

  6. The rider had departed with a register... oh, forget it. IWSG day. My brain is mush.

  7. So where do the lonely people come from? An avenue of despair, where they cower with others out of the swim, eternally singing the same lonely dirge?

    Mars and Venus are so much closer than the planets of the lonely and of the charismatic. The lonely fold their dreams into tiny squares, and secrete them between the pages of the eternal notebook. Their entries are made in sepia.

    The charismatic? Their dreams come with a musical soundtrack, backing vocals, and a firework display. Even the lonely can feel the warmth. Feel it, but never share it...

    1. What exquisite writing! "The lonely fold their dreams into tiny squares, and secrete them between the pages of the eternal notebook." Love that.

  8. A text can't register the elation I feel. I need to shout it. And dance it, and sing it.
    I'M FREE.
    Finally.
    And you helped me do it. All these years you have punished me quietly, in secret. The bruises never showed.
    Until this afternoon. You lost it, and gave me three licks with your belt. In front of an open window. Your mother saw you. Your mother the policewoman.
    She believes me now. And I am free.
    Free to leave, free to depart, free to be me...
