Last month's prompts were provided by Hilary Melton-Butcher for which we thank her. This month they will again be here, and I am providing them.
This meme was started by Delores a long time ago. Computer issues led her to bow out for a while. The meme was too much fun to let go, and now Words for Wednesday is provided by a number of people and has become a movable feast.
Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write. Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or an image. What we do with those prompts is up to us: a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore... We can use some or all of the prompts, and mixing and matching is encouraged.
Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog. I would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme, which includes cheering on the other participants. If you are posting on your own blog - let me know so that I, and other participants, can come along and applaud.
This week's prompts are some typically Australian phrases/slang. Feel free to add more, and use (or not use) these as you see fit.
- Pull the wool over his eyes
- Put a sock in it
- Dog's breakfast
- Gone walkabout
- Six of one, half a dozen of the other
- Tell him he's dreaming
