You

I'm exhausted.

I just tried an experiment--a whole series of reflective posts done in second person. They'll go up next week.

Meanwhile, I was reading the Elevensies blog and read the article on the Day in the Writing Life by Dawn.

And she posted something awesome.

Stickman in Fairyland!!!



I like the Gnome Knee Biters and the Unicorn Stabbing the best.

That unicorn sign looks painful! lol. I wrote a piece of flashfiction in second person. I thought I'd hate it, but it's one of my favorite pieces I've written. I have it up now on WEbook's Page to Fame Shorts, and people don't like it so much. :-( I'm hoping it's because they aren't used to 2nd person as it's my one published work.

Second person, huh?? Maybe I should try that exercise. I'll wait and see what you do. *winking*

Renae said...

You are brave...I can't stepping out of my comfort zone!

Second person is scary! I'm going with stickman flattened by giant foot.

Tere Kirkland said...

Ugh, second person? I'd feel like I was being run through by a unicorn by the time I finished writing that!

I'm sure your posts will be fun, Beth!

JEM said...

Wow, I'm interested to see those blog posts now...what was the impetus for the experiment?

Looks about like my day with a 3yo:/

Stephanie said...

LOL! Those are hilarious!!

Never tried 2nd person...maybe someday...if I have the right inspiration!

Ha ha ha ha ha! Stickman in Fairyland = total awesome! :-)

Marian said...

Those are hilarious! I spent a good twenty seconds just staring at them thinking, "What in the world...?"

I also like the giant foot. There is a sense of crushing inevitability about that fate.

Janet Johnson said...

Love the unicorn sign. And the giant. Hilarious!

Curious about your 2nd person blogs. That POV totally gets the shaft. Good for you for giving it some love. :)

Karen Lange said...

Like the foot the best. These might make good story starters.
Happy weekend! :)

The unicorn is my favourite! :)

Though your exhausted now, at least your blog writing for next week is covered. Wish mine was...
