Link an item to advertise or for r/r and write a short piece with the given word.

Welcome to the "Tap the Muse" In & Out.

The idea is: Write small; Think big!

All you need to do is write a couple of sentences, prose-poem, or a very short poem on the given word.
See what you can come up with in a short time.
I'll try to change the word often, depending on my time and real life. The original idea came from a website called, "one word, so little time."

Here are a couple of examples:

Glitter on the frost like the moisture in your eyes...Little did I know before I heard you crying, before I left in a haze of falling snow like a driven person who failed to see what might have been.

The prince rocked back and forth inside the huge barrel. He choked up a scream, hissing, wheezing. Cinderella was nowhere in sight, but he knew she was hiding in the bushes, waiting for the barrel to roll down the Niagara falls.

*Bullet* Keep it very short.
*Bullet* Keep the rating under or on 18+.
*Bullet* Use the word inside your entry. You may use it in its different forms. (Singular, Plural, in different tenses or adjusted to different parts of speech like beauty*Right*beautiful.)
*Bullet* You may enter an item ID that you'd like to advertise or to offer for review.

Make sure you have a copy of what you write. In and outs may change quickly and what you write may be lost.


*Idea* *Idea* *Idea* *Idea* *Heart*

The word of the day is:
