Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

In my attempt to get out of this funk, I posted this topic on The Day Way for my creative writing students to comment on.

"You've got 25 words~NO more, NO less~ to create an impression of joy.  Create it!"

"Loud, fast, sing-a-long songs
On a warm, sunny day,
With grandkid giggles in the background.
Hugs and Kisses and Puppy dog eyes.
Pure, unadulterated contentment."

Check out their comments.


  1. Hi Deb, I followed the 'joy' & looked at your other blog too. Are you doing a high school class, or college? This is fun to see what they are doing & what you are giving them for ideas. I like yours-more specific details are good!

  2. I teach high school. This semester I have two creative writing classes. Very mixed ability...but when I ask them to comment on the blog with things like this, they do a great job!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration! I had to try this!
