I still don't know what to write. So I looked for it around the house.

Slump week still ongoing. But I feel like it's getting more fun despite the slump because I have to get really creative and inventive now to 'game' it and still fulfil my 200 words a day. 


I still do not know what write. So I went around the house looking for it. In my book shelf. On the dining table. Under the study table. In the shoe racks. In my fridge. 


Wait what? 


Yes. In the fridge. So the cheat here is this: Find 10-20 short phrases/sentences from around the house. Anywhere. On food packaging. In books. In magazines on your coffee table. On random slips of paper stashed away in some dark corner of a drawer you had not opened for years. On boxes from purchases you bought months ago. Yes, ANYTHING. 


Then piece these 10 phrases together in the most coherent way possible, like some sort of forced poetry. You can use some words to join them together, but keep these italicised so that readers can tell the difference. So here goes:


...................................


To the child within

An open letter to a new generation


Joy is the ultimate creator

and for these treasures from the soul

Store in a cool dry place

be it at home, school, office

or in Alaska - the last frontier


You have to feel the difference to truly know these treasures

2 missed chances and you'd be crying for more

Think of tissue, think of us


Reading is fun, if only we read more random stuff like that


...................................


Can you guess which sentence came from what/where?


[Update:] The name of this writing game is called "Find My Writing Glasses". Credits to @lucjah for the inspiration!
