WoW # 6 - Status Anxiety

Write On Wednesdays

It's Write on Wednesday and I'm late again, oops. A big thanks to Gill for keeping the linky open.

Write On Wednesdays Exercise 6 - Status Anxiety: Log onto your Facebook/Twitter page and write down the first status update you see. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Write the first words that come into your head after your prompt. Stop when the buzzer rings. Do this exercise over and over if you wish. If you don't do the social media thing (there's bound to be some who haven't succumbed!) email me and I'll send you a status update from one of my social media accounts. If you feel uncomfortable about using one of your friend's status updates, consider using the most recent update on Lamebook, the home of the funniest and lamest Facebook status updates.

There were a few status updates that I liked (with the following pic attached: was on Twitter from Glowless.

Baking cake and drying pants. Is that what they mean by multifunction oven.

Maybe the next thing they can make is a multipurpose boss. She thought as her fingers stabbed at the keys. One who isn't a lying, cheating bastard. Maybe a nice friendly one who is also good-looking.

She finished her letter of resignation and printed it off. Aha..there. That will show you Mr Smith. Try to find someone else who will pay your bills, file and type for the same money as a checkout check.

She walked into the larger office and put her a paper front and centre. She admired it, then turned on her heel and marched from the room.

She was free.

So that's the 5 minutes done. I actually like this one and when I'm not tired I'm going to try and take it further.

It definitely took a change from where I thought it would go. I'm now a bit confused about her role in his life and why she is so peeved with him.

What do you all think? I'm kind of torn between she was thinking of sleeping with her boss but discovered he was married or she discovered he was cheating on the wife that she knows and likes.

Go over and read everyone else's work over at Ink Paper Pen.

Write on Wednesday - Write the music

Yes I know it's Friday but for some reason I haven't a had the opportunity to do Write on Wednesday yet. But I noticed that Gill's linky is still open for a few hours so I thought I would give it a go.
Write On Wednesdays Exercise 5: Write the Music - A bit of choice this week: Pick your favorite song and write down the first line of lyrics OR turn on the radio and write down the first line of lyrics you hear. Then set your timer for 5 minutes and write the first words that come into your head after your writing prompt. Stop when the buzzer rings! Do this exercise over and over if you wish.
So my favourite song... Well that is a bit of a tough one. Currently the CD that gets the most air time in the car is a Queen one. So I had chosen a song I want played at my funeral (yes, sorry a little morbid) We are the Champions. I even cheated by using the first two lines of the song.
I've paid my dues, time after time...
But I found I couldn't use that song as I just wanted to write the lyrics down.
Okay onto my next choice...Bohemian Rhapsody.
Is this the real life
No, Houston, we have a problem. Of course it's bloody real life. What the hell are you thinking?

God, I don't know. Somedays I think that I'm just a part of a a bloody reality TV show. Nobody's life can be as screwed up as mine.

Gee, d'ya think? You not are the only one with issues you know. It's not all about you. Why the hell do you think it is? What makes you so bloody special?

Gees. Pissed are you? Good. About time you got snapped out of your delusions of adequacy. Oh wait, I mean your delusion that the world revolves around you.
Ouch. That was a bit harsh. I can see you good friends talking like this but it took a really weird turn for me. Especially being all dialogue. For some reason I thought it was going to be the guy from the faked alien encounter back at Exercise 3: Two Fat Ladies but now I'm not so sure.
Join in the fun by reading all the entries for this week over at Ink Paper Pen.
