This is my week for posting at UB! So we're going to be doing Round Robin Stories!
I love those.
I love the Collaboration and it's always interesting to me how other people think. Generally they Zig when I would have Ducked. Or curled up in a ball, rocking in a corner...
But before we get to our Prompt...I'm not sure if anyone reads the NYT and saw this pretty AMAZEBALLS experiment going on?!
Arnon Grunburg Is Writing While Hooked up to Electrodes
It's going to be some time, I think, before the whole thing is played out...but essentially he's writing a novella while hooked up to electrodes that measure his brain patterns. Or read his emotions that he's putting out while writing it. (Awesome just by itself!!) THEN...Wait for it...50 people will have Their brains scanned while they READ it. They're trying to see if the emotions that people feel when they read a book coincide to what a writer feels when writing it.
So. Fricken. COOL!
I think they need a bigger test field...but oh well.. :)
So the writing Prompt...
"The sweet scent of lilies mixed with day old whiskey made me want to retch. But I forced my way..."
