“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.”

“Just Jot It January–“Sort of Like”… by Linda Martin Andersen”

I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit.  I can’t participate every remaining day this month, but I will join in when I can.

I decided to create a theme to write about:

Today, I Celebrate Things That Are “Sort of Like”… 


Coyright2016. Linda Martin Andersen


When I looked out the window this morning, I saw frost.  I remarked, “It’s sort of like snow.” Understand, I live in the south and this is as close to snow as we get, most of the time.

Last night, I heard a book summary described.  Basically, the reviewer said the book was “sort of like” another title.

Celebrate “Sort of Likes” in your world today.

Writing Prompts:

  1. Write about a “Sort of Like” you’ve said.
  2. What is your favorite food “sort of like?”  For example, some people say “rabbit” tastes sort of like chicken.
  3. Tell about a time a friend shared a story and you shared one “sort of like” it.

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment.  I’d love to hear what you’re celebrating today.  Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!
