Soft Things

Exercise #105 : "Soft Things"

Make a list of soft things.


This should be easy enough, shouldn't it?

  • kitty bellies (Kitty tongues, on the other hand, are the antithesis of soft.)
  • puppies in general
  • stuffed animals, specifically mine
  • a down pillow / comforter combo... mmmm
  • my face after I use an exfoliator
  • freshly shaven legs
  • feather
  • dryer lint
  • the inside of sweatshirts... you know, that fuzzy stuff
  • suede
  • really old leather
  • my hair
  • the beds that the princess slept on in The Princess & the Pea, apparently
  • snow (Can it snow this year in Nashville, please, God??? PLEASE?!?!?!)
  • my sister's red couch
  • Oscar the Grouch (It's a well-kept secret. He doesn't let anyone touch him because the softness would counteract his grouchiness and make him cute, thereby completely ruining his image.)
  • If clouds were actually tangible, I would think they would be soft. Too bad they're just gas and so on...
  • cotton candy
  • bamboo yarn


Well, that was fun. Did I leave anything out?

Before I head off here, I'd like to send out a quick thanks to all of you that read my little intro to my NaNoWriMo novel yesterday and commented / sent me a message with constructive criticism. It feels so wonderful to be included in such a wonderful writing community, and I really appreciate all of you. Thank you so much.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

Things That Are Yellow:
