Theme Thursdays [Old] – 29Dec11

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

As we are winding one year, we will hopefully cast away everything that is old and look forward for a brighter and more prosperous year. So look for the word OLD or anything that symbolizes it. (worn out, torn, past etc)

OLD (worn out, torn, past etc)

My THURSDAY THEME for OLD is here.

He’d told her about this goofy old man who yelled and screamed about his pizza order getting screwed up.

[and one more snippet…]

There was a state-of-the-art refrigeration system for the flowers, but the food was housed in a broken down Kenmore that groaned with the effort to keep the interior temperature below 45 degrees.

  1. Great theme for the week.

  2. I like your snippets! Sadly, this week was hard for you. You would think a vampire novel would have plenty of stuff to choose from . . .

    Here’s mine this week: http://sinnfulbooks.blogspot.com/2011/12/theme-thursday_29.html

  3. I knew what part I was thinking of quoting, but it took me a bit to find it again. 🙂 Here’s my snippet:
