First off, I hope everyone had a Happy Mother’s Day!
And thanks again to Chrys, CD, Charity, Elizabeth, Angela, Kristin and Marcy. Thanks for welcoming me as the newest moderator on Unicorn Bell.
As for my first official post on UB, I thought and thought about what can I blog about. What topic you’d find interesting, intellectual, funny and engaging.
But then I remembered that I also have to attend my work conference this week. Which I’ve been dreading for over a month now. I’m in for a long, long week. And will be in dire need of a few good laughs to shake off the lethargy of it all. So funny post it will be.
Last August #TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter started trending on Twitter. I also remembered a comedy skit. About how easy relationships would be if men and women walked around with warning labels. And I thought why not combine the two in some sort of game. A game of why writers should not be underestimated. Nor are they people you should mess with.
So let's have some fun with a game of ‘Warning...This person is a writer. He/she’ and finish it with the craziest, funniest, zaniest thing we can think of.
It can be based on things we’ve actually done. For example, if remembered correctly, Gilderoy Lockheart is actually based on a real person. As admitted by JK Rowling. Who also found the person Lockheart is based on annoying.
Or just make it up. Maybe it’s something we want to secretly do (in our writing). But we just haven’t met the person(s) who’ll make it possible.
Let’s start things off!
- Warning...this person is a writer. He/she is a hand-to-hand combat elite who can pull your brains through your nose.
- Warning...this person is a writer. He/she knows all your secrets and is itching to tell the whole world.
- Warning...this person is a writer. He/she talks to dead people. Imaginary people. And people who exist on different planes.
Have you ever pulled a JK Rowling and written an annoying character based on someone real? Did you write them into embarrassing, humorous scenes? Or ever killed off a character who was based on someone real?
