The Random List Generator

(see the link to the article that inspired this at the end of the post, and hail Ray Bradbury) (this will maybe make more sense then)

skeletal tree branches scraping noise from an empty sky; tendrils of memories that bob like jellyfish; faery queen alights upon her lily pad throne; silence held with a jaw clenched, words battering against the backs of her teeth as she hastily smothers them with her tongue; a slow heartbeat, much like a slow clap, builds into a tumultuous ovation of effervescent love; the fading light drained the energy out of his pores, as if waning shadows and waning thoughts shared a common thread; motivation slipped through her hands, a rope burn that in her apathy she felt not at all; sacrifice and self-discipline were uncomfortably aligned in her brain, and she wanted nothing to do with either;

So here’s a little catchphrase collection, things that have popped into my head over the past few days that had no oomph behind them that I’m hoping will now attract their mating sentences to them like moths to a literal flame….

    Man, these are all great descriptions. This: “silence held with a jaw clenched, words battering against the backs of her teeth as she hastily smothers them with her tongue” – I love. LOVE!!!

  2. “a slow heartbeat, much like a slow clap, builds into a tumultuous ovation of effervescent love;”

    Oh, I like that one. Very poignant. Though it might depend on who’s loving what. I mean, maybe it’s an alien expressing its affection for eating human brains? 0_o.

    • Hahaha! I love that you make me laugh out loud, and that you always have an alternate viewpoint that, however far fetched, still makes sense :)

  3. I’d be hard-pressed to choose just one. Wow, they all wake up my brain. Thanks for the link. I put a couple of them on my library list. (I see I’ve missed a few of your posts. When I upgraded my operating system my RSS feed disappeared. I’ve rectified it by signing up for your emails. I love your writing, and so I shan’t miss out again! :) )

    • I love when you say things like ‘I love your writing’ and ‘shan’t’ ;) Ha, I just wish I could make those lines stop drifting lazily in the current of thought and drop anchor in the stream where the rest of the words are of the damn story!! I’m always grateful for you, Steph :)
