The Prompt:

  • Write a story (set in your novel’s world) that makes sensation a priority. Use all five senses.

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

Prompt Words:


  • potato

  • angelhair

  • orchid

  • Opiate

  • Matisse

  • Burgundy

  • Alliteration

  • Onomatopoeia

  • Violin

  • Flute

  • Silk

  • Mini m&m’s

  • Honeyeater

  • Hummingbird

  • Kingfisher

  • Cheesecake

And now I offer you…

“Splendiferous Superlative Sublime

Sensory Spectacular!”

“Mmm….smells amazing!”

“Pan-fried catfish, broccoli, garlic-mashed potatoes; shrimp scampi with angelhair pasta. Key lime cheesecake, with mini M&M’s for snacking. Sit down.”

“Where did you find a burgundy and pink orchid?”

“Matisse Nursery, back home. Short-sheeted the couch with silk sheets, too.”

“Aren’t you eating?”

“First, music. Violin and flute.”

“’The Honeyeater, the Hummingbird, and the Kingfisher’ – why?”

“It’s your Splendiferous Superlative Sublime Sensory Spectacular.”

“You and your alliteration. Why?”

“Operation Opiate. Forget your troubles in sensation, big brother. Boom!”

“And onomatopoeia, too? You’re pulling out all the stops, Lizzie.”

“Is it working?”

“There’s a reason I’m the engineer.”

Will Lizzie’s tactic work?

Can Trip enjoy her gestures?

Is this his last supper as a free man?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
