Same, Same, But Different – Saturday Mix, 23 January 2021

Here we go with my first challenge of the day which just happens to be Sarah’s Saturday Mix. You can find out more here

Same Same But Different

Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words are:

  1. see
  2. blue
  3. soft
  4. kind
  5. weak

Your writing form is either poetry or prose.

She was feeling really sad (2) today, finally able to view (1) the wood for the trees.
The mellow (3) timbre of her brother’s voice was gentle (4), never saying I told you so, though she hated herself for being so feeble (5). Years of abuse had taken their toll, but now she was free and could begin again.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
