I’m trying something new to light a fire under my creativity. I had dreamed up a short story about a guy in his mid-30s who finds himself jobless with no prospects. He turns to temp jobs to “find his way”. I decided to turn this into a fictional blog, written by the main character, that recants his experiences in different temp jobs. I’m hoping to allow it to be humorous, but also explore some of the darker side of humanity without being too depressing. I guess I’ll just have to see how it pans out.
In any case, you can find this flog (that just doesn’t work for faux blog, does it?), or fictional blog on Tumblr. My son tells me Tumblr is only for teenage girls, but I hope he’s wrong. I doubt many teenage girls will be interested in reading this.
