GBE2: Free Write

This week's GBE2 prompt is called "free write." That means we're supposed to pop out our random thoughts onto the computer without worrying about how stupid it sounds or what boring dribble comes out. Hey! I've got a reputation to keep up.

Boring Clip Art found within 15 min.
In preparation, I had to find a timer. I searched the internet and my widgets only to remember that I already have a cool one that will bark after fifteen minutes. This ought to be fun because my dogs react to barking. In a mere twelve minutes, their furry heads will pop up and they'll look around for a nonexistent dog. However, I won't be able to write about their reaction because my writing time will be up. Sucks for you.

As for now, my kids have a movie on the TV that I could care less about. Which is probably good because if I paid attention they'd be embarrassed. I don't know what's embarrassing about watching movies with your parents. The movie is called "No Strings Attached." I think Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman had some kind of sex affair. Maybe it's good that I'm not paying attention if they are bedding it up. Don't worry--my kids are adults, so I'm not a totally awful parent. Kevin Klein is also in this movie. He went to my high school... for about a year, but I never knew him because he's old.

Back on topic: The problem with free write, is that the trash that comes out on the keyboard won't be anything that folks will want to read. And if by some chance you care to read my worthless ramble, I probably won't want to read yours. No offense, but I like posts that are short and focused. With that in mind, I'll spend my last seven minutes revising this post so that it's not totally boring because I have a reputation to keep up. If I publish junk, no one will care to CATCH MY WORDS.

P.S. Ruby's head popped up as she looked for the dog. It was amusing.

I'll catch your words, regardless. But these were fun. You even made me laugh when you said, "Sucks for you."

Anna said...

How fun...I love your ramblings!

KAT said...

Thanks. Since I'm new to this free writing I didn't want to be first so I was waiting for someone else to post. At some point I will make an attempt. :D)

fun read... and, oops!, i must be a bad parent... my kids have watched THOSE KINDS OF MOVIES forever... we have a very open, talk about anything relationship.... so the movies don't effect them in the least... they handle without embarrassement - (for me its a learning tool to teach them what is appropriate and what is not...) great conversation starter... (wow, i feel like i am free writing - just babbling..) fun.

Jo said...

I would read your words whether you read mine or not! So there! he he he ♥

Word Nerd said...

I should free-write more often than I do. For me, it's an occasional thing, or I get on kicks and then don't do it again for a stretch of time. Kind of like exercise. Hmmmm.

I LIKED your boring dribble, I even liked your boring clip art, and it DID suck for me that I didn't get to see the dogs' reaction because I have 6 pugs and I'm into all that nonsense. Now, however, reading what you wrote I'm ashamed to ADMIT that I liked such boring dribble,graphic and all, dogs notwithstanding, So I probably won't send this at all. If I do, I'll pretend I didn't...

Green Goose said...

Hilarious!! LOL Glad you wrote. Glad you will admit you're not going to return the favor, because mine is dull indeed. Happy New Year to a not awful parent!! LOL

shelly said...

LOL!

Binky said...

Well I don't know, junk seems to get the best ratings on TV.

angelaparsonmyers said...

Hummm. So that's how this is supposed to work. Well, enjoyed reading it even if it was random.

Laura Rogers said...

Fun. Great job.

Rachel Cotterill said...

Random stream-of-consciousness writing sounds quite fun, to me :)

Brenda Stevens said...

LOL you still cracked me up...and i still like catching your words

The Frizzy Hooker said...

You just couldn't let go and type. Had to edit it and find a clip art. LOL

Joyce Lansky said...

Thanks for the comments.

@FrizzyHooker Yep. You know me. As messy as my house is, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. Maybe that's why my novels are unpublished. They're never good enough to submit. ;)

Claudia Moser said...

You did your own editing, now could you do it for me too? :)

grains of sand said...

Ha!....Your honesty speaks volumes and easily makes up for the "missing minutes"

Just Jane said...

HA! I love rambles. I love peaking into the minds of my quirky friends.

Darlene ~Bloggity Blogger~ said...

LOL... Very amusing! I love it. I haven't done this yet. I better get busy! It's a crying shame when someone can't find 15 minutes to write within a 7 day period! *hangs head in shame*
