PROMPT WORD:  ZANY

A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
– Thomas Mann

Right lane for passing only. It’s a 6.

life by the drop (thanks, Stevie) collects in a glass

if we’re lucky it reaches the rim,
if we’re lucky spills over until the lights go dim

shed no tears this day, dive into it instead
celebrate and dance, weave one more thread

wrap yourself in my blanket, let the fabric bring you peace

PROMPT WORD FABRIC

It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, ‘Always do what you are afraid to do.‘”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Not quite. It’s a 6.

Coffee could no longer stave off the deleterious effects of a lack of sleep for nigh going on 3  weeks. Deadlines were deadlines and no where was there sympathy for those who found themselves smack dab dead up against one, let alone more than one.

So what’s a body to do when the eyes, conspirators in a campaign for independence, begin glazing, blinking increasing in frequency for want of closing indefinitely or, resistant to peer pressure, remain open, unseen forces having pried them (open) wider than is natural for man or beast. Overcompensation at its most mischievous.

As many a writer will attest, there are advantages of sleep deprivation however, the benefits are almost always eclipsed by the negative effects yet hail to the slumber deprived for within them lies the pathway to a portal to the “dimension of imagination” as Rod would say, a “dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity”.

I was hoping to reach that dimension this evening…

PROMPT WORD LINE

If I ask you to think about something, you can decide not to. But if I make you feel something? Now I have your attention.”
 Lisa Cron

The Road Untaken. It’s a 6.

But it’s not my dream, that was just it. How many times, how many examples, how many well intentioned comments over the years, the digital billboard flashing inside his head, reinforcing the misnomer; the thumbnail image exploded to full size. Asking oneself a rhetorical question is the first sign something’s wrong; he chuckled at the irony.

What possibly could be the catalyst, after all the foregone “this is it!’s filling the screenplay logbook that was most of his adult life? Was he ready to acknowledge the burden of carrying around the trappings of the once life, the might have been, the could be, because bottom line, none of it mattered.

He’d used no road map, no GPS, simply packed a bag, filled the car, hit the highway and drove, for days, for weeks until he saw the flashing light 50′ in the air, the approaching billboard partially lit, “Welcome to He……………..
