I'm suppose to be creative seven times.
1) My friend decided to go drinking with his friends and they got in a car accident. One of the boys died, another ended up crippled and my friend ended up in prison. Needless to say, I'm really against drinking and driving.
2) My sister quit high school after her best friend was beaten with a hammer repeatedly and stuffed in the dryer.
3) When in the Bronx, my son (4) and I got on the subway to head to the zoo for the day. I was the only white person on the train and everyone must of thought that was unique because I was stared at the whole time. One woman across from me asked me where I was going... scared, I told her. She told me not to get off at my intended stop but one stop before. I didn't know what to do. So, I got off at the stop she recommended. She was dead on, a much closer route to the entrance. See what stereotyping does? I learned my lesson.
4) I ate with Native Americans on the cliffs of the grand canyon. I must say the food was one of the worst that had ever passed my lips but the experience was amazing.
5) I am a real Tim Horton coffee shop fan (those who live in Canada know what that is). Anyway, when I lived in one of the largest cities in Canada, I made it a goal to visit every single one. I did.
6) When I was twelve, I headed up to the Northern part of Canada with my family. We watched the Northern lights and the natives up there taught us how to make an igloo and we stayed in one overnight. It's actually quite warm inside.
7) Once, I was visiting a friend to drop off some papers and noticed police were surrounding a home two houses down. My spidey senses started tingling so I told my son and husband to stay in the car and I went alone. As I was standing at the door, gun fire broke out. I ran back to the car and as my son held the door open and I jumped in the backseat. We booted it out of there.
Most of these are true except one. Which is the false story?
I will link to seven creative writers over the course of the week.
The first recipient is: J.L. Stratton from True Life and Fiction. I wrote a blog a few days back where I listed my blog page peeves. This man actually changed his blog to make it more eye friendly. Doesn't that deserve a visit and a follow? Thank you, JL.
