Three Minutes, Winter, & Monday Fortune Cookie 5/6/13
A FEELING IS AN IDEA WITH ROOTS
SNARKY RESPONSE: And dislodging a bad one can be similar to getting a root canal.
FIRST THIS NEWS FLASH: NPR announced on Saturday, their new Three-Minute Fiction Contest writing prompt – Write a short piece of fiction (600 words or less) in which a character finds something he or she has no intention of returning. Deadline is midnight on Sunday, May 12th.
Actually, I thought this fortune and NPR’s newest Three-Minute Fiction Contest were kinda sympatico with my recent efforts with random writing prompts. I don’t know if I’ll have time to attempt this round, but I’m thinking about it.
I found this prompt and got the feeling my response to this prompt would work best as free verse. Perhaps attending all the Open Mikes and rubbing elbows with some of the Richmond Poets has begun to rub off on me. They’re so friendly and giving of their words and encouragement that I felt open to making an attempt. I hope they’re not laughing or cringing too much.
