One-Minute-Writer: Week 42

(Note: These are writing prompts of "One-Minute-Writer-Blog")

Monday, October-18: Wrong. Look around you right now. What's wrong with this picture?
It's already dark ... *sigh* ... I miss the summer and days with light evenings, sitting outside, enjoying the warmth, together with some friends, a cool drink and a nice barbecue!

Tuesday, October-19: Ghostwriter. If you could be a ghostwriter (writing someone else's autobiography for them), for whom would you ghostwrite?
*hmm* It already exists a very elaborated Shah Rukh Khan story and he's also writing his own! Unfortunately I'm too late for a family history, almost everyone I could ask is dead. Well then, who would I like to accompany and ask about his/her life? Maybe a famous writer like Stephen King or J.R. Ward, maybe Vera F. Birkenbihl, my personal role model of a successful, extraordinary, intelligent, charismatic trainer. Yeah, that would be cool!

Wednesday, October-20: Bird. If you could become a bird perched in a tree, where would the tree be? What would you want to observe?
I instantly thought of the tree in the sanctuary of the Scribe Virgin. Unfortunately this is a fictitious place in the 'Black Dagger Brotherhood' book series. Well, a real place then: I would prefer a huge tree deep in the Indian jungle. A place, barely untouched by men, perfectly for the observation of the last Bengali tigers.

Thursday, October-21: Clothes. What do the clothes you're wearing now say about you?
I'm home, the workday is over, I'm comfortable and ready to relax on the couch.

Friday, October-22: Chocolate. Write a brief bit of fiction using the prompt "Chocolate".
Brian looked proudly over the lovely decorated table. He, Mr. Fastfood-Microwave-Man had really managed a self-cooked dinner. Okay, he had driven his sister almost nuts with all his every 5 minutes emergency calls, but he wanted everything to be perfect. Thankfully, Beth had given him all the advices he needed. She had also realized how much he had changed. It was unbelievable, but for Mary, the love of his life, he would do everything. Including cooking!
First dish had went all well, honestly, you couldn't do much wrong with a simple salad and yoghurt dressing. Now was steak and baked potatoes on the plan. But Brian set all his hopes in the dessert: strawberries with cream. They would hopefully both sit out in the garden, down on a neat picnic blanket, he feeding her and maybe ... maybe he could rob a little kiss or two. Because one thing he knew for sure, her kisses would be sweeter than any fruit, sweeter than cream, even sweeter than chocolate!

Saturday, October-23: Ah-choo! When someone sneezes, many people say, "Bless you!" or "Gesundheit!" Come up with an alternate response to sneezes.
I would prefer saying nothing at all. Why should pay extra attention to an illness or an allergy??

Sunday, October-24: Make it work. How do you "make it work" (whatever "it" is)?
Switch off. Count to 30. Switch on. Swear silently. Hit that stupid thing with the hand. Howl because of the pain. Swear loudly. Wander around, think deeply what to do. Decide to make an emergency call to a friend, report hysterically that this stupid thing doesn't work. Urge the friend to come immediately. Friend makes a short inspection, gives me a sarcastically look and points to the jack, because that 'stupid non working thing' is offline!
