"I Love Her, But..."

Exercise #76 : "I Love Her, But..."

"I love her, but..." fill in the rest of the sentence (Gender is interchangeable.). Do 3 different versions, and circle the one you like best. Use this as your first line, and start writing.

I'm sorry guys, but I can't do this one right now. Not in my current frame of mind. In all honesty, this is the exact line my boyfriend used when he broke up with me, and I simply cannot handle it right now. Maybe somewhere further on down the line, but right now... I knew I needed to bypass on this one for now when I started to tear up as I read the instructions. Heck, I read the title and my heart started racing. It's too soon, too raw... So... Once again, I'm sorry that I won't be able to do it right now.

I will say, though, that if any of you do this exercise, I'd love for you to post it in the comments section. It'd be a really great chance for you all to get to know one another and each other's writing styles. Not only that, but it's a lot of fun to see where different people take the exercise, to see several various responses.

So comment away! Have fun! :)

Peace.
Stef.

P.S. Tomorrow's post is going to be a little late. I have midterms out the wazoo and will do it as soon as I am able.

I would like to try my hand at this. I am not sure why I am intrigued by it. It is so simple....but that is usually the way, isn't it?

In the meantime, I am sorry you are hurting :-(

I have to tell you...when I first looked at this title in my google reader I thought it said ... "I really love her butt." This could also be an interesting exercise. hehe

Thanks to both of you for your comments. :)

Lisa, it is simple, isn't it? I'll definitely have to try it once I've done a little bit of healing.

Isabella, that's hilarious!!! haha I may have to make my own exercise at some point. It'd definitely be worth it for a laugh. :)

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
