Writing Challenges

Knock Knock

Welcome to Day 16 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing, the creative writing challenge that 4 out of 5 theoretical physicists agree has no reason. Today’s prompt is Music, and it was my idea. You’re welcome. Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you participated in today’s challenge before you realized that no mathematical model can rationalize this phenomena.

Nice knockers, don’t you think?

It’s been two hours and I’ve written one paragraph. And deleted one paragraph. Then wrote another paragraph. And deleted that one too. I can’t believe that music has stumped me. Music! It’s not possible. I love music. One of my many (two) talents is my uncanny ability to remember song lyrics. So how am I stumped by this prompt?

I blame CheesyMike. You know this whole writing challenge this was all his idea, right? Uh huh. I didn’t have anything to do with it. At all.

So when previously stumped, I turned to Haiku. I’m not going to do that again. Once I got started, I couldn’t stop. It took days before I got over it. People kept asking me why I was talking like that. Seriously.

What does that leave me with then?

Oops, I did it again!

Knock knock
Who’s there?
Cuckoo Catch

Mrs. Robinson, Jesus loves you more than you will know
woah, woah, woah

Ok, really. Who’s up for whoopin’ CheesyMike’s ass? I do know where he lives.

    So it’s come to this, huh? Knock knock jokes? How dare you, Nicky? Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to repost a “Classic KZ” entry instead of writing something fresh and new for today’s prompt.

    If you’re in this much trouble on day 16 of the competition and you’re hosting the event, what does that mean for the rest of us? I fear…..

    I think it’s time for a quick history lesson. On February 1, 2013, NIcky wrote the following admonishment on Facebook to a number of us challenge participants:

    “I must admit, I’m a little disappointed in all of you. I would have thought all of you would have pre-written and pre-scheduled all 28 posts by now. Shameful.”

    We Work For Cheese? Try, “We Work for Hypocrisy!” Damn, that was a good one. I should be a writer or something.

  • Knock knock?

    Nicky’s knockers who?
    They’ve got names?

  • I actually liked this prompt and why I returned. I’m thinking I like some of the ones toward the end of the month.. Mike’s? πŸ˜‰ Knock, knock, who’s there? ME! πŸ™‚

  • I’d go with the “or something.” πŸ˜‰

  • I would have thought that you would have at least chosen prompts that YOU could write about. Anyway, here is my haiku contribution

    Who ate all your cheese

  • I can’t knock your knock knock jokes…hell, I’ve written the same song every day! – or have you noticed???

  • This is why it’s a challenge. But, music is a huge topic that can go in many directions – instruments, band class, concerts, a favorite band, Woodstock, etc. I took the easy road today!

  • Give me the address and I’ll be there ready and willing to whoop some ass.

    I’m glad you didn’t turn to haiku, my love, your knockers are simply amazing.

  • Hey Nicky, I believe you. But, you’ll still come with us, right? It’ll be fine. Honest. Indigo x

  • I will admit to laughing at your first knock knock joke πŸ™‚

  • Ha ha ha! Knock Knock. Who’s there? Ya! Ya who? YA HOO RIDEM COWBOY!

  • Linda’s correct… this is why it’s called a writing “challenge”. You never said it was going to be easy. (That said, why the hell did we all go along with it?) Although, I have to admit, those are some pretty fine knock, knock jokes.

    I liked the 2nd joke…but then again, I’m old. πŸ™‚

  • Haha. I, too, laughed at the first one. And, it seems, the “easiest” prompts also always seem to stump the worst.

  • ahahahhahah! both of those are hilarious.
