M’s writing prompts for March came with the following instructions:
“…set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!”
Let us see what I can do in ten minutes…
Once a fellow met twins
who embodied most sins
and he nicknamed them Pouty and Plump
One had full vacuum lips
and the other round hips
and they’d once spent a night with Don Trump
That’s about as far as I got in ten minutes. I toyed with all sorts of ideas and all I could manage was that and whilst it probably hasn’t gone too far yet it probably would have. Sometimes when I write the first idea I have is what makes it to the page and that idea can dominate to such an extent that no other will shift it and that was the case with this one.
The thing is, I made a conscious effort to remove the twat that is Donald from my writing a month or two ago now and apart from perhaps one or two slips have found myself in a much happier place because of it. I removed him from my twitter as best I could and made a real effort to simply not consider anything to do with him.
I am sure there are many arguments for and against my approach and I am sure they are all pretty compelling but for me, right now, I like ignorance. It is bliss after all.
