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.
550. Extend a short interaction as long as possible.
” one coffee please “
” yes sure what one?”
“Hmmmm…what is the name of the one with no special fancy milk, just you know plain”
” a black coffee”
” yes that’s the one…but I want it fresh”
” an Americano?”
” it’s when you grind coffee beans and it’s fresh”
” oh yes then that please”
” ok what’s you name please?”
“What’s your name?”
“What does that matter I want a coffee”
” I need your name”
“Because I need to put it on the cup”
” I know it’s my drink because I ordered it”
” I know but I need your name”
” I don’t want to give it to you”
“I need your name”
551. Choose a person who interests you. Write about following the person home
I am not a stalker and I would not spend money to go to the states to follow someone I would want to actually go on holiday.
