The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write, a story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.
This month the words are again supplied by Delores and can be found here.
This week's words are:
and/or "maniacal megalomaniac"
Here is my very short story:
"Look at this magazine picture. See how they've used the dominant colour from the carpet pattern to dictate the rest of the decor? Everything blends in."
"And it looks like a show room in a display house. Totally impersonal. Everything matching and colour co-ordinated is so fifties. No-one does that anymore. Except maybe elderly Grandmas and finicky people"
"So you don't want this sort of thing in our new home?"
"No. I want us to choose individual pieces that we both like, things that speak of who we are. We shouldn't just go out and buy a room full of stuff."
"No. Get the main items, a couch or armchairs, something to sit on, something to hold the TV and other things can come in time, when we know what we need. There's just one rule. No boots on the furniture, ever."
"Well, I can see the determination on your face and you're right like you usually are, so let's go couch shopping."
