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. Today’s Prompt is “I can’t believe I failed”. 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!
A conversation with myself
“I have no ideas. I’m fresh out. My head is pounding, my sinuses are so dried out I got a nosebleed this morning, and no matter how many socks I put on I can’t get warm.”
“It’s not even that cold out.”
‘I know, and yet here I sit with a wool sweater on, wool socks, an electric blanket and a space heater, and I still can’t get warm. It could be a sign of the second coming.
I’m pretty sure “Alaskan girls will be cold after 53 years being hot all the time” isn’t in the scripture
Well it should be.
You need to get it together. Focus. Get something done instead of huddling under this blanket. Maybe if you move around it’ll warm you up.
I tried that. It didn’t help.
Well do something else, get your mind off it. Do one of your courses.
I can’t focus. I can’t concentrate when I’m freezing. I signed up for that one course I was so excited about. I got so far behind, the thing ended and I was only half way through it.
I can’t believe I failed.
It’s another sign.
Again, not in the scriptures.
Whatever, go away.
And how exactly does that work?
Oh, fine, just shut up then.
I’ll shut up as soon as you stop thinking so much.
All right, let’s just watch tiktok videos, then I can stop thinking and you can shut up.
I know right, I always have the best ideas!
