I always liked those 40,000 word short essays. I have always wanted to try a religious horoscope. Fictional Curriculum Vitae would give me a challenge.
Perhaps a compilation of footnotes would be fun. I wrote a foreword for the back of a dictionary a long time ago. Have you read any good short epics? I may lean in that direction.
New technology might allow me to do a private wiki of appendices. I may try a longhand blog, or ask somebody if I could write their journal. Even a written picture essay is possible.
It’s been a while since I imitated EE CUMMINGS
POEM I SHOULD DO TOMORROW PASSING
WILLOW WHERE WE GAZE TO DREAM LINGER
TOWARD SLUMBER SKIES BEFORE
TOMORROW PASSING OUT.
I know a couple who recently had a baby, they would probably appreciate a eulogy. I need to write a thank you complaint note. Storyboarding a riddle would be exciting.
Maybe I could do a review of somebody’s love letters. For sure, I will lead off with an epilogue. The prologue can always wait until I’m finished. At one time in my life, I was an adequate calligrapher, so graffiti is within my reach.
Since the writers are on strike I may adapt a screenplay to an invitation in the form of Shel Silverstein: Kids eating guts, make me go nuts, it certainly ain’t, they taste like lead paint. RSVP, plaid tie.
