Hey, writer-type folks. AND PEOPLE WHO JUST WANT TO PLAY BUT DON'T IDENTIFY AS 'WRITERS' - all are welcome here! Every Friday, we do a fun free-write. For fun. And Freedom!
Write whatever you want in the comments section on this blog post. Play as many times as you like. #breaktheblog! You have two minutes (give or take a few seconds ... no pressure!). Have fun. The more people who play, the more fun it is. So, tell a friend. Then send 'em here to read your 'two' and encourage them to play.
You've never heard this story before ... you want to hear it? Naw, you never wanted to hear nothing true, nothing real. You've got your head up an ostrich's ass - you always have - guess you like the view. Me, I like my darkness to be wrapped in letters, smells better.
So, I won't tell you the story because it's too evil. Too goddamned representative of the way the world is. Shame, 'cause there's beauty in the story, like this: "He sat in the dust-devil madness, cackling, spitting wonder and lost Bible verses into the voracious wind."
You don't want to know, I know.
It tastes bad. Talking to you. That doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's true. It hurts the back of my throat, makes me swallow some kind of bittersweet frustration. I'd beat the story into you with a bat, but I think you could resist even that. God, it's a shame. It's not a happy story, but it's a good one.
You would have liked it.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be out some of today (working, no computer) but, rest assured, I'll be reading everything and commenting as I have time, so check back. Post your pieces on your blogs, telephone poles, passing pedestrians, etc. if you like...it's a fun web o' writing.
