a little nightshade perhaps?
I've been working on a writing exercise involving Horrible Words.
The idea is that you create a list of horrible words and you play with them. Use your dictionary and look up their definitions. Use your thesaurus, use your imagination.
How will these words inspire you?
Will you see pictures? Hear a story? Have a nightmare or two?
These are some of my favorites:
embalm, dementia, torment, impale, infest, grave, shroud, demon, curse, hex, shriek,
torment,wicked, surgery, secrets, ghouls, gasp, curses and death, plagues, poison alone, malice, burial
Want to see where these words have taken me?
Take a look here at deadwoodhall.blogspot.com/ to see for yourself.
