Writing Practice

Here is a random post about recent events and my latest new year's resolution update. 

Yesterday I was a professional escort, hired by a guy to hang out, chat, and help wingman at a bar. Last week, I was hired to play with a kid in Terraria. Last week I also started a hard keto diet (high fat, low carb style) for the next three months as well. Fun times. 

My new year's resolution was to write a novel as part of NaNoWriMo this year. As such I have been starting to do writing practice and study. 

Here is the (very short) story I wrote as part of the Start With This podcast challenge (by the makers of Welcome to Nightvale). The challenge was to write about an idea you had. Set aside an hour and just create something based on the idea. I ended up going a little over an hour and found myself (just like in game creating) needing more time to polish. 

The idea I just pulled from my idea notes, a database of ideas and thoughts I jot down sometimes. I picked one randomly, and I couldn't remember fully what the idea was about. This was in my notes: "Now the thing I did to her, is going to happen to me" transfers from person to person. everyone from same person, just different steps  -friends are near you in step. 

I made up a new word in this story, "wearned" which means "looked like it has had no maintenance for a long time" and carries a meaning like it is pleading to be repaired or put out of its misery. Other words like friender and tracker can be conferred by the context. Feel free to let me know what you think!
