Does anyone want to do a writing exercise today? Ping me if you do!
 
What if we don't know and just want to wait for the topic?
 
Or if we're shy and don't want to precipitate anything, but might chip in if others have already started?
 
I don't usually exercise alone, which is why I'm overweight and don't get any writing done
 
I simply don't want to commit to anything. At the end I might just not be able to come up with anything or don't like the topic.
 
5:49 PM
What if you propose the topic?
 
mmmmmmmmmmmmmkay
is that your topic proposal? "sad trombone sound"?
 
no, that's my reaction to your joke
 
I made a joke?
 
there was a laughter track and a sad trombone sound

I came to the Overlook Hotel for an interview today. Creepy little place, high up in the mountains of America, with hardly anyone about. The hotel manager looked very shiny and new, but I sensed he had dark secrets hidden behind his plastic Lego-like face. The twin waiters, Kit and Matt, were completely blue, and everyone knows blue people aren't to be trusted. Even the chef was odd: with a name like Vitamin C, doubtless he only cooks using citrus fruits. Fortunately my old comrade Mr Wilson was there too, taking a short holiday to visit t

A dragon womped into the great cave making all the knights armour rattle as they bent over and stuffed hug sakes full of gold and jewels from a great pile that lay on the smooth floor of the cave.

“So sorry I am late! I just got caught up at a meeting…, “ He came to a stop in front of the knights and bent his head to bring his snout closer to them (dragons are rather short sighted) “We have been having rather horrid time with you knights and your thieving ways. All of us have been worried sick over our hoards and stolen princesses. Although between you and me you can take them back now!”
