Writing Prompt 2/24/2010 - Angel v. Devil

By Amy Robinson

It’s been that kind of week where my imaginary devil is whispering in my ear, telling me to eat another Krispy Kreme. The devil sounds a lot louder than the angel on the other shoulder pushing carrot sticks. They both agree that I should get you guys a fun prompt today so you can keep writing!

We're finishing February off at Writing Pad with dramatic flourish. Our own Writing Pad angel, Aaron Henne, is leading a playful playwriting workshop this coming Sunday. By the end of this class, you will have written a complete, 10 Minute Play!

Grab that last available spot by calling 323-333-2954.

Writing Prompt: What does your conscience whisper in your ear? Make a list of 5 things that are bad for you that you do anyway (i.e. eating too many donuts). Pick one and write about it for 10 minutes. Then post it in the comments of this blog!

Comment on this blog! What do you do even though it is bad for you? Post a sentence or a mini-story. You could win a free class!

My devil tells me to eat chocolate cake, Nutter Butters and Twizzlers to relieve stress. He whispers in my ear, "Just 1 Rice Krispie treat from the snack drawer will make you feel better! It's so ooey gooey delicious. Or how about that flourless chocolate cake with the raspberry sauce left over from last night's Master Class?"

I look longingly at Adel's cake in the tupperware--it smells like a fragrant chocolate heaven and is moist and delicious. I decide to eat a thin piece even though I've put myself on a sugar hiatus so my pants don't get too tight.

Oh well, maybe I'll start the sugar hiatus tomorrow. :)

I notice a hair out of place on my eyebrows. I have to pluck it. But wait, there's a another one, on the other side. I can't leave them uneven- that would be crazy. Oh, wait, there's one more. But what's that one on the side doing? It isn't going the right direction, so it has to go. And this one too, it's pointing downward. We can't have that, can we? Well, now I have to even them out again. And on and on, until, OH SHIT! Where are my eyebrows?

SC--this is hilarious!

I love being inside of the narrator's head while she indulges her eyebrow plucking obsession. I love, "Oh Shit, Where are my eyebrows!" Nice job!

Winter has returned. I do not like because I can not stand the cold. But wearing loud clothes also quite interesting. I look like a cute bear
