#275  Write about what your main character did yesterday, from the time he woke up until the time he went to bed.

#276  Her cat was the most annoying cat in the world, especially when he…..

#277  The biggest difference between southerners and northerners is….

Feel free to post any results from the prompts in the comments!

  1. #277 Northerners are like chimpanzees, while their friends in the South are like dolphins. The dolphins have bigger brains–they just don’t talk as much.

  2. Interesting viewpoint. You must be a southerner. I am not sure I agree with that!

    The biggest difference? Northerners tend to be a bit more high strung while southerners have that relaxed, front porch, sweet tea drinking type of attitude.

  3. Well, I was hoping to rile Charlotte. She apparently has deserted the North, at least while she is in Nashville. Portland may not even qualify as Northern–could be on a planet of its own. I wanted to make her workshop but too much in the fire.

  4. I know, I'm fun to rile.  I'm here in Nash for one more night and loving every minute of it.  Planning another workshop here soon, J.D.! Plus I get to see you in France…

  5. I don’t believe this “loss for words” nonsense. Please keep me informed about the next workshop.
