Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Group writing project: “This is Awkward”

A couple of days ago, my brother Jerry posted a short-short story titled "Visitor in the Night" on his blog, Muddled Ramblings and Half Baked Ideas. It's a sweetly ironic little bit of fiction that ends with the line, "This is awkward."

One of the responses to that post was another nifty short-short, also with the same concluding line.

During the second half of 2008, the venerable Tillerman ran a series of group writing projects on his blog, Proper Course. He challenged his readers to write a blog post about a particular topic, and then he summarized and indexed the responses for everybody to share.

In that spirit, I have decided to start my own group writing project. Write a short-short story that ends with the line "This is awkward." Post it on your blog and then put a link to it in the comments here. Periodically, I'll index the results. You can see my entry for the project below.

Jerry's "This is Awkward" so you don't have to search for it.
