Exercise #159 : Salesmen Arguing About Yellow Doughnuts
Two salesmen are arguing about some yellow donuts. Write the scene using dialogue and incorporating the following:
"this will set your hair on fire"
he said, slowly stroking his chin
he picked up the pen and pointed
"oh, no, no, no, no, no"
Ok. I'm going to be a big old ball of complaining flesh today. I've been sitting at my computer, attempting to write this exercise, but nothing is coming to me. Not even anything that I would deem horrendous writing.
|This is what I feel like right now.|
Don't get me wrong. It's not a bad exercise, and, given the right frame of mind, I'd probably have a lot of fun with it. But for some reason I simply have absolutely nothing going on today in the form of literary formation.
So as a result, I'm going to bid this exercise adieu until a later date when I feel less like hitting my computer screen with a meat tenderizer.
If anyone did this one or is going to do this one, please post it in the comment section for others to read. You don't have to, of course, but I would feel better about life... and we all want Stefers to feel good about life, don't we??
