Life [01 Sep 2007|10:20pm]

tjara
My schedule got disrupted quite a bit when my summer holidays started. I also visited a friend in Berlin last weekend who strongly adviced me to do my main writing in Icelandic which made an awful lot of sense. I'm still going to try to continue the daily writing but will only post here if it'll be in English and worth posting. ;)

Anyhow, I decided to drop some prompts since I am not posting any of my writing. Have been brainstorming this afternoon for a project I'm changing.

Prompts:

Words of advice.

"I feel rejected."

I decided to do my writing off this community for the weekend. It was a total of 1242 words that I did today seeing as I was lacking my daily dose for the past two days.
I thought I might leave some prompts as well. :)

Prompts:

Merchandise

"Also, I can kill you with my brain." - origin unknown

I tried something different with the PoV here. Tried to write completely 3rd person, with no omniscience - that is, no looking at anyone's thoughts. Just actions.

First Job, First Day (401 Words)Collapse )

I miss writing. I write better (and more consistantly) with prompts.  Figuring that any others who check out 400 words community are looking for prompts, I figured I'd post a few to try to get the ball rolling again.

"Even if it kills me...I'm gonna make you love me again."

Think less, act more [07 Aug 2007|03:14pm]

I've been trying to get back into the gear for writing but not doing so well so seeing how active kamerad has been in this community I thought I shouldn't make more excuses. ;)
For now I'm just experimenting with fleshing out character ideas.

There’s something satisfying about a free coffee. I get the same thing every morning in the café at school—a short Very Vanilla Javanella coffee with cream and two sugars. The nice lady at the register gave me a punch card and told me that once I got nine punches in my card I could get a free coffee. I thought, “There really is something satisfying about coffee. There is something extra satisfying about free coffee.”
I smiled at the lady and thanked her for the punch card. The next day I went to the café and got a short Very Vanilla Javanella coffee with cream and two sugars. I went to the register and handed my card to the cashier (it was a different cashier than it had been the day before). I know this cashier. She punched my card twice for one coffee! She winked at me and sent me on my way. Amazing. I was thrilled. If I could get the same lady to punch my card everyday, I’d have my free coffee in five days.
I religiously went and got my coffee every morning and some days I got one punch and some days I got two. I suppose it wasn’t really a big deal because I like coffee and $1.29 isn’t all that much to pay for 12 ounces of deliciousness.
Yesterday rolled around and I realized it was time for my free coffee. So I got a GRANDE Very Vanilla Javanella coffee with cream and three sugars. I walked proudly to the register and handed the cashier my punch card. She congratulated me on my achievement—I drank a lot of coffee.
I took the grande coffee to my Modern American Poetry class and listened to the professor ramble on about Modernism, T.S. Eliot and Hart Crane. I smiled and nodded when he asked me if I understood the concepts he was talking about. I smiled, nodded, and sipped my grande Very Vanilla Javanella.
The class is one hour and fifteen minutes long. By the time the class was over, I had downed 24 ounces of coffee. This English professor likes to ramble on over class time and I really needed to leave. He was trying to make a point about something (Langston Hughes maybe) and I could feel my eyes turning yellow. I smiled and said, “Dr. Kuhar, I really have to pee.”
