From my journal.. a little story inspired by today’s “Journal Juju” from The Awe-Manac by Jill Badonsky.
“In my teal blue bumper car armoured with thick gloss black rubber, I crash mercilessly into Lacka Financy in her pompous little goody two shoe car covered in tiny martyrs and tidbits of rust.
Oh! She crumbles, bumper car and all!
The kindly custodian sweeps her away so I can crash playfully, joyously and with all the glorious adrenalin rush of waterskiing, smack into A.Bund Dancing who cheers enthusiastically “You win! You win!”
Buckets of financial freedom, including good old $1000 bills sprinkle down on me. The kindly custodian sweeps them up and places it all in an enormous bucket labelled “Janet’s” so that I may continue to crash into FREinD Famly, Ide Ahs and Adven Chures.. having so much fun laughing that tears pour down my face, my tummy muscles hurt (nicely) but I don’t pee my pants.”
Hmmm.. is this going to be a book? My friend Heather thinks so.. hmm. Okay, please consider it copyrighted. (smile) Oh, and by the way, for the Creatives out there… I believe our creations are copyrighted the moment they are created. I think there might even be something about ‘the moment the idea is conceived’. Definately don’t take my word for it.. Check your country / state/province legislation… but generally we creative sorts are protected! Somebody in politics knows how special we are!
Back to bumper cars: Feel free to write whatever you are inspired to write based on: If you were a bumper car, who or what would you be bumping into? …. and then go buy The Awe-Manac for more inspiritional triggers!
