Rules from Haunted Wordsmith:

Welcome to the new Opposites Attract Challenge!

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work).

Explore the word and its opposite … challenge your creative side


Today’s word: joyous

Antonyms: displeased, dissatisfied, joyless, sad, unhappy, unpleased, unsatisfied


It was a joyous occasion as Kevin and Jan exchanged their vows in front of the small crowd of friends and family. They were looking lovingly at each other when the minister asked if anyone had any objections?

They were surprised when someone yelled yes, and they all looked to where the guests were sitting. Kevin’s heart sank. The girl he’d fooled around with during his bachelor party was sitting among the guests and getting to her feet. He was displeased. He had thought it was a one-night stand and he had been strangely dissatisfied with the whole episode with her anyhow.

Jan was looking at him sadly. She had thought he was perfect and here he was just like her ex-husband already cheating on her.
