It's Monday! What are you reading?

 

This seems like a slow reading week but I had to finish reading The Magnolia Story since the book was due back at the library on Thursday. Then I realized that Talking as Fast as I Can is due back on Tuesday so I've been focusing on reading that book this weekend.

3 Word Wednesday #515


misogynist, neophyte, oblivious

I went to my friends again this week about a length for this prompt. After hearing the words, a friend mentioned that it sounded like words describing a certain serial tweeter and I should style this week in tweets.  I liked that idea so I did some quick searching about writing stories as tweets.  I stumbled upon Nanoism.net, which features stories written in 140 characters. I thought I'd attempt to write something in 140 characters.

Went out with a secret misogynist. He felt I was a neophyte and explained politics to me. I think he mistook my bland look as obliviousness!
