Weekend Prompt: Write the tweets of a deceased hero, historical figure, or literary great

The Weird Week in Writing is taking a holiday today to enable your Promptly scribe to work on the Writer’s Yearbook 2011 magazine, and to head down to the Kentucky State Fair on a writing prompt reconnaissance mission.

Here’s to hoping your weekend is an excellent one!

  2. Vibram Five Fingers

    I don’t really run barefoot. I wanted to, but the combination of super hot sidewalks and the fear of sharp objects convinced me that Vibram Five Fingers were a good compromise between running shoes and none at all. What I didn’t know was that my reasons were the same as almost everyone else’s and the guys that I looked up to were the same Vibram Fivefingers that everyone else did.
    Though I don’t call myself Barefoot Tyler (mostly because I DON’T RUN BAREFOOT), this video is absolutely hilarious. The insults are far better than the random crap the Vibram Five Fingers guy is spewing. http://www.2vibramfivefingers.com/

    Hey Zac. . not that I’m hinting or anything . . but. . . wasn’t that awesome picture prompt – – the guy at the dunking tank – – from last year’s State Fair? I’m just sayin’. . . maybe you could keep your writerly eyes peeled for a picture prompt from the fair.
