This week, please humor me by writing an infomercial for this product:
OK, go! (But first: Are you going to make this an infomercial for a super-duper jumbo turbo vibratron? Really? Me too!)
Well, before you proceed, here are the “rules” (YAWNNNN):
- You must write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kicks in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
- For this one, keep to 350 words or less.
- Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
- Post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.
Here’s a PROMPTuesday primer.
And if you’d like to see some of the submissions from PROMPTuesdays #1-10, click here.
Worried about The Rapture? Concerned you’ll be left behind when all God’s people are swept up to heaven in one existential minute? Well, fret no more! The Rapturenator 3000 is here! Specially designed to propel you directly to Heaven’s Gate, whether you belong there or not, this handy dandy machine delivers quick jet propulsion without the mess of most electrolysis-based hydrogen systems. Made of space-age plastic polymers and bits of twine, the Rapturenator’s engineered materials are specifically designed to thrust you up into the air, and not down into the fiery pits of hell. But be ready! Once you flip the Rapturenator’s sophisticated ignition switch to “on,” there is no going back! And due to the machine’s high-speed and lack of protective, pressure-resistant shell, your face will blow off at 45,000 feet above sea level (we’re working on that).
So call today! Get your heaven’s wings while supplies last.*
