#coolprompts – Modesty

#coolprompts for this week: 3 July – 9 July 

The word of this week – Modesty – use it in your text.

Describe it with the help of hyperbole if you can (non obligatory).
Hyperbole means “excess’ or uses extreme exaggeration to make a point. 

Examples from daily life: 

  • It was so cold, I saw polar bears wearing hats and jackets.
  • I am so hungry I could eat a horse.
  • I have a billion things to do today.

Example in the poem ‘love+hyperbole’:

I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street.
W.H. Auden

To participate: post a story, poem or flash on your blog, tag the post – #coolprompts, pingback to Ray’s post (or any last post on RayNotBradbury’s Blog), if you want me to come over, read and comment. Any genre/style is welcome! No boundaries at all! It’s OKAY to bend the rules. Have fun!


My own example will be posted later this week…
