#BECAUSE

I thought this [writing] project was going to be fun.

It isn’t.

It’s tedious.

I find myself constantly behind, especially since I’m working on a presentation piece for work, in addition to trying to perfect the set for next Monday’s show. As if that’s possible?

That’s just part of life – doing things we don’t want to, though. It’s not even a part of growing up because even as children we’re forced to do things we don’t want to.

“…because it’s good for you,” That might be the second most infuriating phrase followed by, “because I said so,”

Because is a shit word. Of course, it’s Middle English and Old French. Thanks, Google.

Writing Experiment.

For one month, I will each day ask a different person (whether friend or stranger) to give me a topic/question/thought and then I’ll write about it.

Edits will be minimal as this is an exercise in discovery and free thought.

It’s very simplistic, but I hope it’ll inspire me to really examine the world by experiencing another’s words.

The goal is to experience written improv.
