#SoCS – The Nerve!

11 Comments

What nerve I’ve got, almost two days late responding to my own prompt!

But you know what? It’s like that meme that’s going around. We’ve been at this “stay at home” thing for so long, there’s nothing to talk about. Nothing new, anyway. So I sit here at my computer, waffling over what to write. I actually get nervous. (There’s those nerves again.) And then I wonder, what’s the point?

Just Jot it January was easy for me, because all I had to do was make stuff up. Fiction is so much more interesting than real life these days, isn’t it? In fiction, we can pretend sickness doesn’t exist.

Maybe I should make up a fictional life for myself. Then I could live vicariously through the fictional me. I’ve even got a picture of the fictional me in mind. Aren’t I cute?

Photo: A snowman made out of a pointy snowbank with a single ball of snow on top with two eyes, a nose, and a mouth, and two twigs for arms sticking out of the snowbank.

Yeah, looks like the fictional me has about as much of a life as the real me.

sigh

Sorry I’m late with my SoCS post. Almost a SoCM post now.

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  1. By the time the fictitious you melt, maybe we’ll be able to go out more.

  2. I just assumed that the fictional Linda was holding you back. Maybe she wanted you to write her into a better outfit, or give her better shoes. I’m just glad it was you that was late. When I saw this in my inbox I was worried that I completely forgot to read your post!

    We all need a reason to know what day it is.

  3. This is fine, quite true and love your fictional pic.
