It's Wednesday and it's JULY! How crazy is it that time is moving so fast? I don't get it. How does the summer move faster than winter. I hate it! Anyway, how is everyone doing? How are all of my writing peeps doing? I'm editing Finding Sam and hating it. If you know me, you know how much I hate editing. :( SO this prompt is a welcome distraction. Let's get rolling...
Prompt Seventy-Nine- Workplace Weirdness
I needed a fun prompt today and I found this one on creativewritingprompts.com. Write about a weird day at your job and embellish it, make it super silly and funny.
The first thing I notice when I walk into work is the change in color of the walls. What used to be pale yellow, more close to white than anything else is now bright orange with suns painted in deep browns and bright reds. I don't know why someone painted the store overnight, but I continued to walk past the foyer into the main area with our offices.
Jenny sat next to me, but today her cubicle was different and in her place sat Jared, the office weirdo who loved performing close-up magic. "Maggie Jones, what a pleasure to be beside you today."
"Hey, Jared." I was in no mood to deal with this. Why was he even here? "Where's Jenny at?"
"Jenny is dead. But who cares? She was a bitch anyways. We decorated the place in her honor. And now I'm your best friend."
"You can't just be someone's best friend like that. And what do you mean she died? What the fuck?"
"Hit by a car. Died instantly. No worries. She probably felt nothing. Anyway, staff meeting in five minutes. See ya there."
What was going on in this place? I had to figure it out. I dropped my briefcase on the ground and walked over to my boss' s office. I doubt she'd be as annoying as Jared was about this. But when I stop in front of the office, I see through the clear window.
Mr. Leroy is having sex with Riley right there! I cover my mouth and try to look away but it's nearly impossible. He has her bent over his desk with a fistful of her hair in his palm. I turn so I don't have to see any more. What is going on here?
My best friend, Kerry, appears. Why is she at my work? "Kerry!"
"What's going on?" she asks looking around the room like she's super confused.
"I have no idea. It's like the Twilight Zone in here. They're having sex in there," I whisper.
"Why am I here, Maggie?"
And then I wake up.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
