This is so much fun. I've already done one for this, and it was extremely interesting to work on...and didn't take me that long to write!
You Have 5 Messages: Part 1 of 2
You walk in and you drop your coat in its usual spot - just like you've done a hundred times. And, just like you've done another hundred times, you check your answering machine. The number '5' flashes repeatedly.
You press 'play'.
Write those five messages.
Messages can be realistic, whimsical, literal, figurative, humorous, sexy, suggestive - anything at all. The important thing is to write them down!
This part of a two-part exercise is to look at brainstorming from a completely different point of view.
We'll post your messages on our website and blog so don't forget to send them to us! And anyone who's sent in a writing sample is eligible for drawings and prizes at the end of the year!
