Alright people. I kept saying I would do another 5-minute exercise, but I never did…until now. This was actually completed on Thursday…I think. I’ve been dating my papers wrong all week. This could’ve been done on Monday for all I know. But here it is. It’s actually pretty good if I do say so myself. At least it was when I wrote it. Btw, if you have an exercise that you’ve done or one that you use to help you get over your writer’s block, please share it in the comments below. Love ya’s.
#421: “So, what do you write about?”
“So, what do you write about?” she asked him as she rummaged through his library.
He looked at her; she didn’t notice. “What makes you think I write about anything?”
“Oh, you know, the pen collection, the library, your silence; I don’t know. You just kind of seem like the writing type to me.” She turned to him. “You can tell me if I’m wrong.”
He shrugged. “Actually, you’re quite right. I do enjoy writing occasionally.”
“What are you writing now? If you don’t mind my asking.”
“I’m writing a fiction piece about a serial killer who gets away with murder by passing off his confessions as fiction.”
