Oct 18 writing prompt… FLOWER

The writing prompt for Oct 18th is FLOWER… at first glance, one would think of the plant life

Your character could be a florist or picking up a bouquet for a hot date, send an arrangement of blooms for a sick friend, or picking his/her own from a garden (either a home garden or wildflowers)

But what happens if you just hear the word, instead of seeing it written down… do you think of Flower- plant life, or Flour- baking ingredient??? both words sound the same but their meanings are vastly different… If you think of Flour, you are mixing cakes, baking cookies, making the crust for a pie, or some other oven creation… You also can make gravy, and well… a lot of homemade meals need flour… and a little secret… if you are working with dough/or some other sticky mixture that you are molding by hand, coating your hands in butter helps to keep your fingers from sticking…

or if you are working on an at home kids project you could be making paste, glue, or even playdough… all things that you could have your character doing in their day to day life, while you add in some of the all important dialogue …

Now back to the original word… FLOWER… flowers can be used to decorate not just places but people… you can have your character place flowers in her hair, or a popular tattoo for females is the flower… usually a heart, a butterfly, or a flower on the ankle… delicate and feminine …

and lastly, lets look at the romantic angle… de-FLOWER … this is the love scene, the moment when the woman allows herself to be taken by her lover… it can be emotional, heady, down and dirty, or sweet and loving… usually deflower is reserved for a virgin’s first time…

Now go forth and write… there are two important date coming up… Shocking Finds (A Finder’s Keepers Novel) on Oct 26 and Halloween (Day of the Dead, All Saint’s Eve, Samhain, or whichever you observe)  at the end of the month…

Happy Wordage, Tracey
