For today’s writing assignment, we were given adjectives, asked to think of the nouns, and then to write. Here are mine:
itchy / relationship
Marcus squirmed under the strain of his itchy relationship with Martha. It was like walking into a sauna fully clothed. Sweat poured off his brow, down his neck, and underneath his collar.
reluctant / monster
Herschel stomped slowly, lagging. The reluctant monster dreamed flowers. Purple irises, magenta gerbera daisies, and pink roses. His limp hand held a mace, a chain, and one of his teeth.
stumbling / rock
The stumbling rock accidentally rolls over the woman. Grasses lay down low.
sticky / painter
The sticky painter grunts in disgust. Ugh! Glue drying quickly. He wipes. Pants sigh. Glass breaks.
angry / couch
Alissa sat down. The angry couch deflated. Metal coils surge into her leg. Yes! She rubs her leg, winces. She feints.
clumsy / ocean
The bottled ship was launched into the clumsy ocean, slapping about in the chaos. Blue-green waters sneak inside. The SS Gwendolyn goes down. Blrrrrrr….
greasy / hands
Eggs sizzle. Bacon crisps. Ed’s greasy hands slip into action. Wheat toast, sliced diagonally, toasted. Plate set to disco beats. Breakfast!
melting / traffic
Police move the barriers. Open roads widen from melting traffic. Engines hum, leaving birds behind as dots. Bon Jovi’s prayers livin’ on Mix 98.5.
frozen / vista
Lily stood near the icy cliff, painter’s brush in her hand. The frozen vista stunned her in oranges. Teeth chattered. Dots dotted on sketched canvas. Tears fell.
reborn / bicycle
With the twist of a wrench, Blixa’s reborn bicycle races out of the gate. Pedal fast! Faster! Blixa totters.
