This week I think I’m going to just post my Free-Write as nothing really came out of this week’s prompt for me that really stood out or I felt I wanted to expand on. That, and cause the deadline is NOW, ha ha. Maybe I’ll come back to this??? 😦 Fail?
This post comes out of the #WeeklyWrites prompt: Cut Throat
Here are the contributions of others:
Free-Write: Cut Throat
I came up with this week’s prompt. I think I was thinking of the movie Cut Throat Island. I don’t know why. I’ve never seen it, though I think it’s the same team that did Long Kiss Goodnight, one of my favorite films! Love it!
Is it Cut-Throat, or Cutthroat?
To get a job.
Pointing out flaws of friends, or competitors to achieve or get something.

Sometimes, we have to be “friends” with strangers.
As business people, as actors, or if you need help with something, or sell anything, networking is a skill we all need. In a setting where we can mingle and network we try to connect to people who are strangers. It’s almost like going into an audition, or in any place where you want people to like you, so you’re careful, and self-conscious. Sometimes it could be harder because of the setting. If it’s at a party, it could be loud AND there could be a lot of other people vying for each other’s attention.

When we think of ‘Make Believe,’ we normally associate it with childhood, playing ‘make-believe,’ where we pretend to be something, or do something.

Sometime growing up, I got the idea that in a past life I was a white woman with a white dress and brown hair who jumped off a cliff to her death. How do you remember something like that? I’m sure over time I’ve embellished what I think I remember. It was a cliff into fog, which I imagined had water past it. I think it was also cloudy, overcast, and it was rocky, with some overgrown grass. The wind, blowing my hair. Misty rain. I’m not sure if I saw that in a dream, or saw it in a movie and remembered it as myself. I used to tell people that’s why I’m afraid of heights, when it came to roller coasters, which now I’m not even sure is true. I think it was more that I disliked the feeling in my gut when falling.
I’m not sure what to believe, but I think I believe in everything and anything. I don’t want to rule any possibility out. Life after death as reincarnation or life after death in the afterlife. Continue reading Life After Death Ft. Story Concept for “The Afterdeath” →
