Ok guys - I don't consider myself much of a writer despite trying to keep a blog but since I already felt bad enough about missing @mariannewest last SoCal meet up, AND she's been leaving me daily messages about where my selfie was....well I figured the least I could do was try Day 1. Yesterday was the deadline to enter your name to participate in the challenge, but you can still check out the daily prompts and other contest entries here: https://steemit.com/contest/@freewritehouse/day-1-200-day-contest-prize-25-sbd-and-a-chance-to-win-sbi
I love reading fiction, but when it comes time to use my creativity to write for a whole five minutes off of one word, my mind immediately shuts down and says no, try another challenge, this one isn't for you. Unless I am in a super panic attack, I have a hard time embellishing facts to make things interesting. I am all about facts, and science and what truths can be proven. Yeah, OK, I admit it - there wasn't 400 million thousand crawly bugs preventing me from cleaning up the garden. But like, 4 is basically the same when they're all wriggling and nasty-like. I hate bugs. Oh, but that wasn't the prompt. Its BANANA.
Peel. Banana. Peel, peel, banana. Peel it down the left. Peel it down the right. Peel it down the front and UH! Take a bite!
Anyone else know that rhyme from when you were a kid? That's the first thing that pops in my head when I think BANANA. Also that that is pretty inappropriate for kids. Baby's first blow-job lesson. My next thought is: One. BA-naa-na. TWO. BA- naa-na. That is an actual teaching method for how to correctly hit bongos.
Does it count if I re-read my own submission through for the last four minutes of the free-write? I've got nothing else.
Here's my selfie. I haven't finished my coffee yet or brushed my hair (for at least a year, now) but it was now or never! I'm really going to regret this in 45 years when this photo is still floating around the internet.....
If you've made it this far and are totally confused at my post, no worries. I don't get it either. But I appreciate you reading, anyways!!
