Writing Challenges

Internal Dialogue

Welcome to Day 17 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing, the creative writing challenge that 4 out of 5 rocket scientists agree is not rocket science. Today’s prompt is Whatever, Dude,  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 beating up a rocket scientist.


Internal Dialogue

Remember the old “This is your brain on drugs” commercials? Well, this was my brain before drugs. And alcohol. And kids.

The voice in my head –  So. What time is it?

Me – Shut up.

The voice in my head – That’s not very nice. You should be nicer to me. I’m the only one around keeping you company at 1 am, aren’t I?

Me – So leave.

The voice in my head – How long are you going to stare at it?

Me – Until it’s done.

The voice in my head – At this rate, that might be a while.

Me – Didn’t I say you could leave?

The voice in my head – Oh, but then we wouldn’t be having this stimulating conversation. Anything yet?

Me – Seriously, shut up.

The voice in my head – You’re starting to hurt my feelings. Keep it up and I’ll just shut things down completely in here. See, you’re already starting to blink slower. How about a yawn?

Me – *yawning* Ok, fine. Stop it. Look, I’ll be nice, ok? You could try being more helpful, though. How ’bout sending an idea my way?

The voice in my head – Sure! I’ve got this great idea for a post. I’ve even got the title:  My Life – The Musical. Basically, it’s your autobiography in song titles. Just offhand, I thought you could include Teenage Dirtbag, Alcohol, Face Down, Crazy, Sittin’ at a Bar, Howlin’ For You,  Blood Sex and Booze, Cold Hearted Bitch, Basket Case and Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town. Oh, and Radioactive. But just because I really like that song.

Me – Awesome. Except. Music was yesterday’s prompt.

The voice in my head – Yeah, I know. Funny, right?

Me – You suck.

The voice in my head – Well, I am living in your head, you know.

Me – Ha. Ha. And don’t think I didn’t notice the Elderly Woman crack before. Hysterical.

The voice in my head – Heheh. Thank you, thank you very much. I’m here all week. Every week. Forever.

Me – Whatever, dude.
