Write what you know --> WRITE WHAT YOU WANT KNOWN
“I have to tell you a funny story that happened at work the other day.”
“I showed up ten minutes late for work on Tuesday. ...
“Have you noticed that most people have stopped saying ‘Thank you’ when you hold the door open for them?”
“I guess people are too busy nowadays. They&rs...
Always willing to trade in reality for adventure, she’s a verified lionhearted reader.
Our fingers interlock each other’s so perfectly.
We must be hand mates.
Behind every great fungi, there’s a great fun-gal.
“I’m turning 300 today.”
“Congratulations! You must be so…drained? Tired?”
“Actually, I’m quite inspired.”
“Really? But isn’t 300...like a lot?”
“Yes and no. 300 is a proud achievement, one I’m grateful to have reached in my lifetime, but it’s just scratching the surface of all things creative.”
“So, really it’s just the beginning for you.”
“No, not the beginning. I was at the beginning with one. Some may say I was at the beginning at zero.”
“When I was just browsing and learning how the whole site operated. I’m still learning its process, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
“To commit yourself to sharing what’s in your head with strangers.”
“Strangers? Oh, I wouldn’t call them ‘strangers.’ Do I know every detail about every single one of their personal lives? No. Do I know every detail about anyone in my life that I’ve met and have been acquainted with for so long’s personal life? No. And none of that matters, because it‘s not the point.”
“Then, what’s the point of it?”
“For some it’s one thing, for others it’s another.”
“What is it to you?”
“A platform…A showcase. A way for me to express myself openly like never before. There’s something inspiring about unveiling my work, then having it be appreciated at a global level. It‘s phenomenally amazing!”
“They’re not strangers!”
“Alright. What do you call yourselves?”
“People. People who have ideas and love sharing. People who have visions and love creating. People who have voices and love speaking. People who have illustrations and love animating. And it’s through the art of this community of so many imaginative inventers that I’m allowed window views of who each one is and what each one aspires to be.”
“We are hitRECorders.”
This is my 300th RECord! To commemorate the occasion as a writer on hitRECord, I thought it’d be appropriate to write about it in 300 words. I hope you enjoyed it. :-)
“May I tell you something?”
“First off, I don’t like you.”
“Oh, you do?”
“Yes. And I’ve suspected as such for quite some time now.”
“Good. Cause I…I don’t like you. In fact, I have an incredible distaste for you and what you represent. It’s very personal. To be honest, my loathing levels of you are off the charts.”
“I know all of that, too.”
“Well, I’m just glad we can talk about these kinds of things.”
“Was there a second off?”
“Lemme think….First, we covered the ‘I don’t like you’ already….No, I guess all that I wanted to get off of my chest today is just the fact that I have an immense disgust for you and your face.”
“Alright. Now, may I tell you something?”
“Sure, go ahead.”
“I don’t like you.”
“Yeah, I know…..I don’t like me, either."
Occasionally, I like to reminisce about the future.
