Writing Challenge! That One Word

I love how changing one word can totally change everything.

I would like to challenge you to write something, then rewrite it- changing one word.

The goal being to change the whole meaning with the change of that one word.

Keep it to 3 lines or less.

It can be a poem, flash fiction, or a quote, or quip.

Please no explicit content.

Submit in Comments section below, and on your own blog, siting https://learningtocry.wordpress.com/2015/09/09/writing-challenge-that-one-word/ as the source of the challenge.

Anyone is welcome to join!

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.  🙂

    The best I can come up with on the spot isn’t that great, I’m afraid (and one of them needs two words).

    Well done! What an amazing scoop!

        Yes, sorry about that! I admire poets, but I could never be one. Poets take handfuls of words and arrange them into sentences of great beauty and profundity.

        Language just doesn’t work that way for me. Words become wibbly-wobbly objects in my hands — fine for entertaining people, but not something I could ever use to awe and inspire people or to discuss the truths of the universe.

        Sniff…
