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..
473. A hopelessly messy person and an obsessively neat person become roommates.
Well that would never work well at first but if they are friends or get on they could eventually understand one another and maybe work something out so that everyone is happy and it isn’t that bad?
Communication would be the key and if it does not work it would be a tragic way to live with each other or it could become like a rolling sitcom. It would be a very interesting and at times infuriating situation at times.
I guess if it is a new relationship and a new couple starting to live together they would have to take the good with the bad and get used to it.
474. Write about two characters who have known each other for a long time, and give one of them a secret.
Jay has a secret that he has held onto for such a long time and feels that now may be the only time to do something about it and reveal it to Karla. He has known Karla for as long as he can remember and they have always been best friends and know everything about each other.
However she is getting married in a month and all this time he has held onto a secret that he wish he could tell her but has been too terrified to let on – he is hopelessly in love with her. He cannot remember when it started but ever since it has always been something on his mind when he didn’t even realise.
It was only when she started to see Mark that this huge pain of what must be jealously started pounding at his heart. He wanted her to be happy of course he did so he watched them become a couple and grow. Then he proposed, that what when it felt like his heart had been pulled out of his body and ripped into shreds.
He had never realised through all the years that he had always looked differently at her then others and exes. He never really focussed on the heart strings that tightened when she smiled at him. There was always that night when they almost kissed but both of them had long forgotten about that.
And now she was getting married, he felt so alone, he felt lost. He felt like his whole world was about to collapse all around him. He had to do something to stop it.
