This post is essentially 2 posts, inspired by a friend of mine and fellow blogger, who showed me the website Oneword.com. This site prompts users with a word and counts down for 60 seconds, in which the user is supposed to write something about the word. Here are two that I did,
I accidentally let go of the string, and off it went. When it escaped from my grasp the balloon flew in lazy loops, drifting willy nilly, only a speck of dark against the pale blue sky. Higher and higher it rose; will it ever come back down?
“Its like trying to fit a square inside a circle,” he told me, as if this would explain why he was leaving. “We just don’t fit anymore,” he said cupping my chin and gently tilting it to meet his eyes. I still said nothing. “Someday you will understand.” he said, as he stood up and walked out the door.
What do you think about Oneword? What other words would you like me to do, or what would you write for 60 seconds about either of these words?
