|Charlie Brooker used the powered down screen of his cell phone |
to inspire his award-winning Sci-Fi series "Black Mirror." What will you find in yours?
Greetings Garden Dwellers!
Welcome back to Out of Standard, where I will set before you a challenge to defy the conventions of a particular theme. I will call upon you to write out of the standard and find new places in the everyday and even share a small part of yourself with the Real Toads community. It is in that spirit in which I present June’s challenge...
FROM THE BLACK MIRROR
Cell phones can some times steal too much of our attention, their darkened monitors beckoning us to their black mirror surface. Today, we take some of that time and creative energy back. I am calling all toads to pick up their cell phones for some inspirado.
Take the last text message you received and use it in a poem. Good luck on handling emojis!!!
For any muddy buddies without a cell phone or who abstain from text messaging, use the first line from last email you received instead.
KEEP IN MIND
Like every challenge, your poem must by newly written for this challenge and not one which you have previously written which conveniently fits the theme.
So go now, my muddy buddies, and bring us back something shiny and new.
