Question Roulette – Gossip, Desks and Familiar Faces…

Three years ago i bought a book in Tampa which is meant to be a great for creative like minds and for the past three years I have made it my New Years Resolution to complete it. The book is called 642 Things To Write About by The San Francisco Writers Grotto. I never got round to writing many of them so what’s a better way then getting through them then writing a few as an article each week! Enjoy!


110. Write a story that starts with a piece of gossip

“Did you hear Sarah? Clive cheated on Samantha a month after they got married in the Maldives.” To be honest, this piece of gossip that Linda had just told me didn’t surprise me. The money that both families had thrown at the wedding always made me wonder if it was a bit rushed.

None of us were that keen on Clive, they met at a nightclub on holiday in Ibiza and when Samantha introduced him to us we were not that keen on him, he was very geezer like, very above himself and honestly thought he was gods gift to women.

We were so shocked to hear he proposed to her after 3 months even more so when she accepted. He was from a very rich family of high end bankers and she worked in a fancy PR company to the stars. We know that she loved the high life but still we wondered if she had just married him for the money.

I guess she now knows what he is like but i still wouldn’t be surprised she took him back.

111. What your desk thinks about at night

Always just before bed, my top gets a lot heavier then I am all day and thats when I go into full swing and into a strong desk. At night my mission is to make sure that I stay stable and strong I spend all night focussing on keeping my items safe and finding out more about them.

112. A kid in your grade school whom you don’t know very well shows up at your house one day to tell you something important. What does he look like? What does he say?

It has been years since i saw Steven but unlike some people from Primary School time has been kind to him, he still looks similar apart from a stubble, longer hair and more grown up looking. Oh and he has his kids with him. He has come over to tell me that he is running in the local election and is knocking door to door. He didn’t recognise me but I recognised his name and put two and two together.
