The Thursday Think Tank - #8 Sultry


Sultry - hot and humid; very hot and dry; torrid; sexually enthralling; sensual excesses


What danger lurks beneath this prompt? Write something sultry. Tip toe the line of romance and lust. We are not asking you to go X-rated (please don't), but see if with a few simple words you can’t invoke a sense of desire or passion in your readers. A simple stare from a stranger can be sultry or the way sweat or rain runs down one's skin.  Sultriness can be found anywhere.  This prompt may be the most difficult yet for some and for others we may get a 1000 words in the next 2 minutes.  Embrace your inner romantic or stalker and show us some enticing writing.

  4. I must admit this is a tantalizing and dangerous topic. Maybe that’s why the responses are so slow today…too risky or risqué?
    I look forward to reading the other ones shared here today.

  5. OK, I posted mine; and I will be visiting the blogs of others who post. My poem is "Untitled." I just couldn't think of a title. If anyone thinks of one, feel free to suggest it if you visit / comment on my poem!

    Robert, I agree it is kind of a difficult topic. But...why not!
