55 flash fiction friday #74 - now ya tell me


advice from a friend
Never fall for a writer.

Not a good one anyway.

You can never know her. You'll wander through the funhouse wondering how much is real and how much is reflection or illusion. Wondering where the author ends and the character begins.


Then she'll complain that you don't understand.

And you know what? She'll be right.

 Graciously hosted by G-Man.

I've Seen That Movie Too
Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Rocket Group Pty LTD - 1973)

Dammit. Don't tell Chef Jeff that, he'll rue the day. Wait. Maybe if I'm not a good writer it'll be okay.

(Runs away to write something very, very bad.)

lady macleod said...

Well stated, my friend.

Jingle said...

but your wife fell for you...

5thsister said...

Oh please don't write that. I have fallen for a writer myself...Darn it. You're probably correct.

Totalfeckineejit said...

g-man said...

Reminds me of Sharon Stone in basic instinct...hehehehe
Excellent 55 Mojo!

Mojo said...

@Jingle: I have a wife? Why wasn't I informed?

Leslie said...

Well thanks for telling me that I either need to suck at writing or at...

Love it Mojo

*smiles* reflecting off the moon

oh btw my mind is churning with an ending

A Blogoddess' Tale said...

Well, thanks alot there Mojo...

Did you NOT read my last post? I have already been pegged as a Man Hater, who happens to have a lot of baggage. My pickins' a slim. Now you go tell everybody not to fall in love with a writer--the one thing that I am really trying to work on at this point in my life.

*crawls over into her corner and gives up on love* ;-)

Peter Stone said...

Sound advice there, not to mention how often said writer would be locked up in their study for hours upon hours...

Luckily for my wife, I'm not a good writer, LOL.

My 55 is Perceptions Colored

Enchanted Oak said...

Oh, how could a woman possibly claim this is not true? She would arrogantly tacitly be claiming to be a good writer then. What a bind. If it matters to anyone at all, not all good women writers live in their characters' heads in the off hours. (and I'm not speaking for myself, no I'm not)

She Writes said...

Someone recently gave me this advice about male writers... Too late...

Sh@KiR@ CK said...

I love the 55 and music!
I know you are right but I am not married to a writer anyways and I am not one. LOL
Mine is here
I have three 55 to offer.
Hope you like them.
Have you a blessed weekend!
hugs

It is impossible to understand everything about a person. That would make life very boring, don't you think? You have to keep some of it a mystery... At least that's the way I see it. :)
Loved you 55. /Jo.

sigh wrong link! Gone for a poem this week based on the Etheree form created about twenty years ago by an Arkansas poet named Etheree Taylor Armstrong It normally consists of ten lines of unmetered and unrhymed verse, the first line having one syllable, each succeeding line adding a syllable. I added an extra row for the word count and the punch line. See what I mean here.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Oh...I love this. And it rings true. Very true. As a writer, sometimes I don't even understand myself.

p.s. I hear you're quite the photographer.

Daryl said...

Well done .. and usually I prefer medium rare .. I know, its just too corny but I couldnt resist. Silliness aside .. another excellent use of words/emotions

Andy Sewina said...

Phew, now I know where I went wrong.

Cool 55!

naramalone.com said...

You have me thinking that may be good advice. Even I don't know how much of me is real.

PattiKen said...

Excellent 55. I love the "funhouse." But as for that "wife" you didn't know you had? Sometimes those funhouse mirrors are pretty scary.
