Can You Tell A Story In…

It’s Thursday and your new five-word challenge is here. Last week, I wanted you to come up with a PLOT. This week, I want you to think about what the word ORANGE means to you. So can you tell a story in five words, using the word ORANGE in it somewhere?

Here are your PLOTs from last week:

Kim Smyth:

No plot so no story.


My plot’s bigger than yours.

Can you plot the way?

My story’s lost the plot.

EDC Writing:

Plot? No idea, just write.

Paul Mastaglio:

Put in the story’s plot.

The plot thickens, keep stirring.

I’ve lost the plot again.

Kim Blade’s Writing:

Life’s plot always seems obscure.

Writer’s block halts my plot.

Plots direct the story line.

Characters and plots are intertwined.

Epic stories have numerous plots.

Rhen Laird:

Still writing plot’s worthy ending.


Plot away I certainly shall.

Count on me to plot.

Every picture has a plot.

I loved his graveyard plot.

Moral compasses lack a plot.

The deed to the plot.

Ah, the plot simply thickens.
