Five-minute free write
I sag on the couch and watch my sitcom reruns, getting old and letting time erase. I seek a new thrill, but I seek the comforts of the familiar when the first journey gets too scary and draining. I listen to hip-hop with a dose of introspection and realize how often it is that I have brushed aside a type of music just because I didn’t like the sound it was making when it was background noise. I really wish I had more time to sit to myself and listen. I really think I will have to finally sit and write a novel or short story someday stoon, but what story do I want to tell? What ideas to I use and which ones do I save? There are people that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, but then I think of random running jokes from sketch comedy shows. And I’ve got a long way to go (“Such a long way to goooooooo” – backup vocal by Michael McDonald) Yes I qwuoted an SCTV bit. Well, technically a Chriostopher Cross song. Yacht rock anyone? I want my truth top show up on the page. And I sound so incredibly pompus when I use phrases like “my truth”. Are these free writes saying anything new or are they just rerpeating themselves? I think I need to blow them up to then minute free write. I’ve been doing this for a month now. I’m amazed. I need a prize or something. Yes i think I do.
