Writing Exercise #68


1. Write down a place of dread. It's tax season, I'm sure you can think of something. If you hate the dentist, go with that.
2. Think of an infamous asshole. It could be someone from your personal history. Or it could be a former president.

Have the asshole come in desperately looking for services from #1. Perhaps it's at a dentist's office. If so, what was found in this person's teeth? If the place is an accountant's office, consider making the asshole create a spreadsheet. A breakdown of all the terrible crap she/he pulled on people. What they owe in return for their bad behavior. Make stuff up. Go bonkers, have fun.

And if it's too early to feel inspired, read this amazing poem by Cindy Goff.
