Somehow I missed it 6 days ago, but I was challenged to a writing contest. So, since I’m currently pretty vacant, and can’t come up with any of my own ideas, I thought I’d try it. Thanks amusingmyselfmusings for the challenge. You may have inadvertently forced me to realize the futility and hopelessness of my blogging endeavor. I will most certainly crawl back into the shadows after my inferior work is laid bare for the masses to mock and derise.
Just kiddin😜. I’m such such a little 💩 sometimes. Actually thanks very much for thinking of me, but isn’t an immature dark and gloomy guilt trip more fun to read than a sincere grown up thank you? Seriously, everyone go read her blog now….. well after you read mine would be better. But really, it’s a good one. Check her out!
Anyway the topic I was challenged with was What Makes You Laugh. Here it is:
I’ve agreed to my first writing challenge, “What Makes Me Laugh”. I’m kind of nervous as doing something creative as part of a group isn’t my thing. I’m not a joiner to be honest, but when in Rome. So what makes me laugh? The you tube of Tickle Me Elmo being burnt alive is pretty hysterical. Pretty much anything that juxtaposes opposites with an unexpected take or the one that would be most innappropriate. George Carlin, Lewis Black, Howard Stern. Those who would go against social norms are always the funniest people to me. Jen Kirkman’s new Netflix special is pretty good. Farts are always funny. Old farts are not funny. I really don’t want to be an old fart. I fart too much(Fast food). My own bad luck is funny. Seriously, sometimes when shit is totally fucked and I can’t get out of my own way, and my world is crashing with no way out, I’ve been known break out in hysterical fits of laughter… Time ran out during the last sentence……..
That was it; that nonsense of a paragraph above. 189 words was all I could come up with. I think I broke some rules too, but I’m a constant self editor, and couldn’t help myself. I started out by miss-naming the damn thing, and it was a total cheat to talk about being challenged and what it was about. On the bright side, I think my only typos were “innappropriate ” and capitalizing fast food. Oh well. I got to talk about farts so we all win.
Now that you’ve most certainly had your fill of farts for the day, I’ll paste the instructions on how to participate. At the end of this post I’ll challenge a few specific bloggers to a challenge of a topic of my choice, but anyone can participate. If you do, leave a link to your post in the comments here. Anyway, here are the rules. Feel free to break them:
Open an MS Word document
Set a stop watch or your mobile to 5 minutes or 10 minutes whichever challenge you think you can beat.
You topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.
Fill the word doc with as many words as you want. Once you began writing do not stop even to turn.
Do not cheat by going back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check in MS WORD (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write the right spelling and stick to grammar rules)
You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and CAPITALS. However if you do, it would be best.
At the end of your post write down ‘No. Of words =_____’ so that we would have an idea of how much you can write within the time frame.
Do not forget to copy paste the entire passage on your blog post with a new Topic for your nominees and copy paste these rules with your nominations (at least 5 bloggers).
suckers bloggers have been challenged:
Feel free to take this on or totally blow it off. No offense will be taken. Do it if you like, or tell me to have intimate relations with myself. Life is about choice, and who am I to decide your fate?
Ready? Your topic is: The Dumbest Thing I Did Today (or yesterday, last week, whatever)
