If you missed last week’s episode, you missed a great one. You can watch the replay here.
As always, the ladies of the podcast created some great pieces of writing from this sprint prompt. This week, the prompt was: We made a top 10 list . We really enjoyed Tina’s take on the prompt, and we think you will as well! Enjoy, and make sure you reach out to her to let her know you want her to finish this story!
“I don’t know, I think we need to go in an entirely different direction.”
Silence from those sitting around the table.
“Seriously, this isn’t going to work. Nobody cares about the nutrition as much as they care about the taste.”
“What we need to have is an ad campaign showing people enjoying the product, talking about how good it is, with close up shots to get them salivating and craving it.”
Some quiet mumbling from the other end of the conference table.
“Come on guys, does watching a couple jogging, or children at the doctor get you hungry?”
Shrugging of shoulders, paper shuffling, and looking down to avoid eye contact.
In the uncomfortable silence, Sheila turned to the whiteboard and began to doodle a picture of a person eating a veggie burger, their expression was excited and happy. The silence wore on.
She turned to face the conference table, looking at each person individually, nobody but Earl met her gaze.
“Earl,” she said. His shoulders immediately slumped. “What is your take on this?”
Earl shuffled his papers, picked up his pen, put it down again. Cleared his throat.
“Well, I mean, it sounds good and all, but…”
“But we made a top ten list!”
