Worst Place I've Written? GTFO

First Order of Bloggey Biz: 

Post THREE WORDS in the comments section. THREE. Make them as random as you like. Next week is flash-fiction ad-lib week. As in you give us THREE WORDS and we have to write a very, very short story using those three words.  Jeffe will gather all the words and, via the magic of a randomizer, pick the three we're going to use.

Obscure, tawdry, or tame, let us have 'em.

Second Order of Bloggey Biz:

Worst Place I've Ever Written... uhm... any place that has people? Especially little people, as in under the age of Leave Me The Fuck Alone.  I can't write in an environment of distractions. Chattering? GTFO. TV on? GTFO. Slamming around the kitchen? GTFO. Honking the horn? GTFO. Parade of hot men? Wait. Wait. We'll just call it "research."

Oh, my dear darling readers, you know I've a thing for solitude. What you may not know is how well I can write flash-fiction based on random words.

THREE WORDS. COMMENTS SECTION. Aaaaaand GO!

  1. Is that a CHALLENGE??

    I'm thinking we should each get a different set of three - and you only get them the night before. To prevent any writing ahead cheating stuff... *ahem Veronica*

    1. It's challenge only if you believe I actually can write something coherent in under 125k words. ;D

      And I'm game for each of us getting a different set of words. It ought to be pretty damn funny.

  2. "Especially little people, as in under the age of Leave Me The Fuck Alone." You kill me. I've never had to try to write around children - other than my own only one and she was old enough to know not to bother Mom when she was typing. What always got me was people driving past the house with their car stereos blaring and their bass turned to window-rattling proportions. Bleh.

    I forgot the three words last time I commented, so here goes - off the top of my head:

    Baboon, umbrella, cooking

  6. Love that pic. I have seen my huskies do that to each other before, sometimes it is purely in the "You listen to me" category.

    1. LOL! The first time my husky did that, I wondered if the other dog had jelly on his face.

      P.S. "Purple Tortoise" totally sounds like a funky bar drink. Possibly involving Chambord...
