SSIAW -- eek!

SSIAW (Short Story In A Week) starts March 1 in the online writing workshop I belong to.  (SSIAW = Each week  the list posts two sets of five words each; you choose one of the lists and write a short story incorporating all five words.  Words are posted 12am Sunday, stories are due by midnight Saturday.)   I haven't tackled it in the past but am going to go all-out this year -- goal is to sub at least two and ideally four.  If nothing else it will give me lots of raw material to work on afterwards!

On the work front, had a stupendously boring mandatory 3-hour workshop this morning from HR.  Zzzzzzz....   The most amusing part was the animated powerpoint slide that looked like a martini glass with three giant olives appearing one by one.  Presumably this was unintentionally humorous.

Frankly, I would make a good effort to subliminally add alcohol to my PowerPoints just to keep myself amused!

Then again, I am perhaps an atypical HR professional.

Ah, so you're using "prompts" to write these stories too and have to use them all.

I'll give you a list. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

I have a feeling your words might, er, limit the kind of story I could write ;)

Hey, did you know there's a typo in your icon? Perhaps it should read, "Gryffindor: brave but illiterate" LOL!!

Yes, I know. You can tell Dande. She made it.

Icon all better. Now, leave me alone. I'm working on sorting out the financial crisis. And then I'm going to blackmail your EA.
