Personification for Stories and Descriptions

This writing prompt generator, recently revised, was one of the first twenty-one interactive word games presented at the original WritingFix in-service sponsored by the Northern Nevada Writing Project.

Writer Instructions:

Skilled writers often use poetic elements--like personification--in their paragraphs and stories. Today, you'll be creating a short personification sentence that inspires an original story or a description.

Create a sentence of personificationwith the word game below .  Click the buttons below until you create a sentence that you can use to describe a scene you create in your brain.  Write a story or a descriptive paragraph about your character, and use the sentence of personification somewhere in your description.

You can start your story/paragraph with your personification. Or you can hide it inside your writing and challenge a friend to find it.  Don't just drop the personification and run...expand on it by showing memorable details and using strong adjectives and verbs.

Don't make your object really come alive; just make it seem as though it might be alive.

Can you launch a story or a description inspired by this sentence of personification?
