This week's writing assignment. [Aug. 2nd, 2014|06:47 am]
The Image Collector
This week, we were given paint samples and had to write something using all of the names of the colors. Mine is a bit of a vignette. The colors are in italics.

Mathilde and Clarence were doing an approximation of the Hokey Pokey over by the coffee urns. The sound of sirens two blocks over on Orchard Street synced oddly with their musicless dance. Just smile, I thought, and I made my way over to the table at which Stone Brown, our newest resident, had spread his massive breakfast. He glowered at my approach, and crammed a fudge bar into his cavernous mouth. His triple-extra large t-shirt featured a faded image of one of the Spice Girls, was it Pepper Spice? I could never remember all of their names. I sat across from him, trying to ignore the melted chocolate that threatened to drip from his chin on to the Spice Girl. “Good morning, Mr. Brown! Welcome to St. Germaines!”

You think so? Thank you. I felt like a slacker for not doing more. I just didn't know where to go from here.

Well, I'm not sure of what might be "required" but short and sweet and very inventive use of your required paint sample colors was great.

And using paint sample colors was clever thinking. Browsing through the name of the sample colors at the hardware store is entertainment by itself.

Hokey Pokey is a color!?

as is "just smile", which I forgot to italicize the first time.
