Paint With Words or Stretch Your Sentence

Call it what you will, but colorful creative writing comes from words that jump off the paper and create an image for its readers. This glorious image (that can be seen in the mind's eye) is so powerful that its like an individual snapshot that is changed only by personal prospective.

I am more than ready to start writing again and nothing makes me feel more creative than writing with you!

Let's paint with words! We will start with one sentence and then stretch it to become colorful and creative.

Here is an example of a perfectly fine sentence that is changed to a sentence that paints a picture:

Sentence 1: She ate lunch.

Sentence 2: The hungry gymnast wolfed down her beef stew before anyone else began to eat.

Are you ready? Let's have fun! Here is a sentence for you to change to a colorful painting:

He went to the park.

Paint with your words to create a sentence that shows that "He went to the park." You can do it! I can't wait to read your lovely words!

He kept his dog on the walking path as he watched his daughter run from the swings to the slide.

He knew he was nearing the park entrance, when he could hear the laughter and screams of the children as they slid down the big blue curly slide at the park. SPLASH! Into the clear,blue
water of the pool. Nearby hot dogs were being grilled on the BBQ at the concession stand.

The bag was flung across the room by a much excited Alice. Her eyes were bursting with delight as if she had something amazing to tell.

His heart was racing as he strapped on the brand-new ice skates for his maiden voyage on the park's ice pond.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I immediately started racing towards the rainbow colored kyte!

He didn't mean to go there, but his feet took him of their own accord. He sat by the lake and thought about what he'd done, and wondered how long it would be before the cops found out?

Love them all so far!

With wiggly butts, the corgis pulled him to the trail full of good sniffs!

He went to the park and sat on the swings. He twisted to and fro. He kicked at the dust under his feet. The park was lonely.

MaureenHume said...

Frantic sucking breath sawed at his heart and his feet slithered crazily through winter, sludge leaves. Suddenly, the unexpected roar of a motor cycle flung an arrow of light ahead of him and the darkest shadow rearranged itself into an opening. It was the park.

Kas said...

He went at a snails pace to the frozen pond, to the park bench where he always sat and watched the daughter he had never met skate gracefully upon the ice.

AL said...

He laid the plaid picnic mat on the grass, put the his knapsack bag down on the mat and began to snap on the towering pine trees which surrounds the chapel on hill.

Happy new year Jan!

Faith said...

The bench look so alone, cold, frigid and snow covered; but it beckoned to me in the bright sunlight.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I am back!
So my first sentence was this
1. I immediately started racing towards the rainbow colored kyte!

here is my next sentence
2. The kytes tail had been dragging on the ground, and was beginning to hastily lift into sky. Running as fast as I could and with my mouth wide open, I grabbed ahold.
I had no idea what I was instore for!

He went to the park that day looking for a quiet place. He wondered if that was possible. All he wanted was a shady place beneath a tree. He wanted to rest his back on the large tree trunk. All he wanted was peace in which to read.

MelRoXx said...

I'm back!

1. The bag was flung across the room by a much excited Alice. Her eyes were bursting with delight as if she had something amazing to tell.

2. Her sisters looked across the room and stared at her for a moment. When they noticed the glow on her face, they immediately ran to her and curiously started asking her why she was so excited.

Jan Mader said...

You are all amazing!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I am back again!
Sentence 3.
I clinched my teeth tight, as tight as I could onto the the kytes tail.
As it lifted off the ground, I began to twirl in circles. I was getting so dizzy. What have I gotten myself into now, I pondered.

Didn't know we were doing sequels !! lol

1) He didn't mean to go there, but his feet took him of their own accord. He sat by the lake and thought about what he'd done, and wondered how long it would be before the cops found out?

2) While he was deep in thought, his eyes wandered aimlessly around as he took in the scene in front of him. Then, as he stared vaguely at the vast expanse of water, the solution came in a flash. He jumped up and removed his coat.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I am back to play somemore. Here is my ending.

I closed my eyes so site!
I just did not know what to do.
I was in a PANIC!
I made some quick "wishes", just in case.
All of a sudden I heard a voice- a familiar voice saying "Tweedles let go, I will catch you"!.
Hesitantly, I opened my tightly clinched eyes, just in time to see feathers, flying right beneath me. It was Owlbert.
I did not think twice!!
Hope, had came just in time!!
I pried my mouth open WIDE and let go!
In one instant I landed right into the soft feathers of Owlberts back. I sunk my little paws deep into the feathers as I whispered in Owlberts ear,,, "Thank you Owlbert- thank you, wishes do come true!"
