Writing Exercise


Evil Editor has reserved a block of rooms at a luxury resort, and is paying for his own room by charging his minions $500 to attend a lecture in the resort ballroom. Write his opening statement to the crowd. 300 words max, deadline Sunday, 10 AM eastern.

Oh, Most Evil Dude, I beg your pardon for my having a thought, but I am in need of your divine grace. I must have 400 words at my disposal in the exercise of this particular exercise. May I please go forth and dribble my pathetic musings unworthily upon your virtual doorstep?

Evil Editor said...

What you're saying is you can't decide which 100 of your words to cut because they're all so wonderful. Not to worry. I'll take care of it for you.

I am so very grateful for your generous assistance. And I wish you all certitude as you take your red pen to my humble (okay maybe not so much) offerings Most Evil One.

I believe I have crafted a three legged stool of literary amusement. However, it is always interesting to watch a true master make such creations stand sturdily on two. I look forward to the results and the lesson, and I am grateful for your time.

I will review my work of questionable artistic value once again to see where I might make cuts before sending it your way.

hi Wendy,

Would that three legged stool have anything to do with the stool in EE's Saturday reading? Because that's one sturdy stool there, girl!

Wendy, if EE ever adds a category for "Sucking Up," you're going to win in a walk every time!

wendy said...

Soooo, final version came in at 307 words and I did not think that was posibe a few hours ago.

Oh, so much to learn...so very much to learn...

Thank your for your guidance Master.

Kiersten said...

Yeah, whew, I'm glad someone else took that crown. I was tired of being the biggest suck up. Wendy's better at it, anyway.

wendy said...

I am so very honored, minions, to be counted among such an elite group of sucker uppers.

Here's a pic of you sucking--or at least of your suckers:

I'll stick to being a sucker on uppers.

wendy said...

Well Tal, I don't know what that thing in the photo is up to, but it sure seems to be enjoying itself. Its tentacles are even curled! ;)

I guess I can live with that.

Oh sure, I see how it is. All narrassistic and all. This could be a writing exercise about what EE did for Brenda's birthday this weekend, but nooooooo.

*le pout*

Hey Lester, we's gots to do some speechifying...

Julie Weathers said...

sigh. A hotel with EE.

How come all of the exercises lately are Robin fantasies?

Oh, wait. Anything with EE is a Robin fantasy.
