Slump week still ongoing. But I feel like it's getting more fun despite the slump because I have to get really creative and inventive now to 'game' it and still fulfil my 200 words a day.
I still do not know what write. So I went around the house looking for it. In my book shelf. On the dining table. Under the study table. In the shoe racks. In my fridge.
Yes. In the fridge. So the cheat here is this: Find 10-20 short phrases/sentences from around the house. Anywhere. On food packaging. In books. In magazines on your coffee table. On random slips of paper stashed away in some dark corner of a drawer you had not opened for years. On boxes from purchases you bought months ago. Yes, ANYTHING.
Then piece these 10 phrases together in the most coherent way possible, like some sort of forced poetry. You can use some words to join them together, but keep these italicised so that readers can tell the difference. So here goes:
To the child within
An open letter to a new generation
Joy is the ultimate creator
and for these treasures from the soul
Store in a cool dry place
be it at home, school, office
or in Alaska - the last frontier
You have to feel the difference to truly know these treasures
2 missed chances and you'd be crying for more
Think of tissue, think of us
Reading is fun, if only we read more random stuff like that
Can you guess which sentence came from what/where?
