Word For Wednesday (W4W) #55

Play along here!

This week’s word is:

Blank.

I googled the antonym for creativity but could not find a suitable word to describe the utter void I feel lately in terms of writing, crafting, or basically doing anything other than vegging in front of the TV or tackling mundane daily tasks.

I have a compelling desire to create but I lack the drive or inspiration to actually do anything. I am at a loss for how to solve this issue. I worry that my blogs will wither and die if I cannot drag myself out of this slump I find myself in.

I would hate for that to happen. My blogs are my lifeline.

I have stuck been in a depression now for a while and am also struggling daily with a particular issue that I seem unable to conquer. In the words of my very wise friend Feli;

“You’re not going to pull out of your slump till you get proactive. And it doesn’t have to be this. But you need to find something good to do for yourself. And just do it. Stop thinking about it. Do. It.”

That’s tough love right there… that’s real friendship.

Can I? I don’t know. I know I’ve done if before, so it isn’t impossible, but…

Always but…

Ciao!

Security


Lynn gave us ‘Security‘ as our nudge today… As usual, I take a dark angle!


Coarse rope fibres dug into her skin, her tongue rough and dry against the rag wedged into her mouth.

He admired his handiwork. She was going nowhere.


The dressing room door stood open, revealing rows of designer clothes. Her perfectly manicured fingernails caught the sunlight in the mirror as she applied foundation to cover the bruises. The price of security.


Ciao!

Jealousy

Today Lynn nudged us with the word “Jealousy“.

I’m not on form today, I think!

 


seeing you with him

      touching him

                   kissing him

drives me insane

      you were mine

before you were my

¬†¬† ¬† ¬†¬†brother’s wife


“I’m not jealous! She’s welcome to him…” croaked through hot tears as she opened the second bottle…

Word For Wednesday (W4W) #53

This week’s word is…

Verdant!

FullSizeRender

Green is my very favourite colour and even thinking about this word makes me so happy!

When I see this word I picture abundant emerald forests and fields, leaves, grass, hedgerows and moss. 

I see this…

I ask you… have you ever seen a more beautiful and breathtaking collection of photos? These are a sample from my Pinterest board entitled, you guessed it, “All Things Green“.

I think my love for this word stems from my deep love of nature. I am a bone fide tree hugger, a gardener, a nature freak to my very core. 

Look at the synonyms in the definition I provided! 

Lush     Rich      Flourishing     Thriving     Rampant

Such glorious words of excess, generosity, lavishness, surplus, profusion, fecundity, fruitfulness and fertility! All things to be enjoyed and celebrated in my opinion. In fact, I think I have found several new W4W’s right there!

Here’s to All Things Green!

Ciao!

Obsession


Today Lynn gave us the nudge “Obsession“.

When I think of obsession, in regard to love or romance, I am drawn to the dark side, (but then again, I live quite a fair share of my life on the dark side, so no surprises there!)

I had fun with this edit though; I wanted to really capture and portray¬†the compulsive, manic nature of obsession. In doing so, I might have stretched Lynn’s rules… sorry Lynn!

I had a second edit which I really like too; a softer version, but I hope it still has a slightly sinister feeling¬†of a woman being watched and perhaps hunted…

(And yes… you can see where I bite my lip in the photo!)

 

 

 

 

Looking forward to our next nudge!

Ciao!
