Words for Wednesday


The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.

The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.

If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.

This month the words are supplied by ME and can be found right here.

This week's words are:

1. middle
2. nought
3. obnoxious
4. plastic
5. queenly
6. regardless

and/or:

1. speechless
2. timber
3. underbelly
4. vanity
5. walked
6. machine

**let the creativity begin!**

  1. Yes, yes, I know. Timber is better than plastic. Leave me alone. You are being obnoxious. I am in the middle of my book.
    She walked through the underbelly of the city untouched, machine gun at her side, queenly confident, regardless of the odds. One woman against the world. One woman giving a voice to the speechless. Is vanity going to bring her down now at the last moment?
    Sigh. You win. I will come and admire your project. Then can I PLEASE finish my book. The score is nought to one in your favour. Again.

  3. Here is my little snippet for today...

    "Seeing her sitting there in her QUEENLY pose, PLASTIC smile plastered over her face proved to me just how OBNOXIOUS a person she truly was.

    Her attitude and actions never ceased to leave me SPEECHLESS.

    She dealt with people giving NOUGHT consideration for their feelings, or situation. The TIMBER of her voice didn’t help disguise her haughty manner towards others. It sent a chill through those who, unfortunately, found themselves her presence.

    Her VANITY, her MACHINE-like, cold-hearted treatment of others was a shield to cover the true UNDERBELLY of her world; the immoral, immodest excesses of her life.

    She looked down her nose at those she considered MIDDLE-class.

    Towards those who WALKED what she considered a lower path, REGARDLESS whether the hardships they faced were of their own doing, or by an unfortunate, inescapable turn of fate , she ignored completely. To her, they didn’t exist.

    She lived in a bubble...but the bubble was soon to explode."

    1. Will she learn and change? Or will she become worse? Time will tell.

  4. Lee I hope that bubble burst soon. Noisily. And that she learns from it. Probably not though. Those people don't.

  5. Lee; Excellent! I've known a few people like that and usually they soon enough find out they're not all that different from those they've snubbed over the years. I hope she learns it soon too and when she falls from her lofty tower, I hope at least one from the lower classes is there to give comfort and encouragement.
