Today I attended a creative writers workshop. It was most enjoyable, and a really great experience. I've never done one of those before but I definitely will be doing one again. I did a lot of writing exercises today, and a lot of thinking, so I'm a little bit tired.
So day number nine in the thirty day writing challenge is 'Your feelings on ageism.'
I don't know if I have any! Surely I do, surely I'm against it? Of course I am. I'm against all of the 'isms'.
But I'm not sure if I've ever witnessed ageism, or experienced it. I feel like it might be a thing that older people might experience most? I think after this I might keep a watchful eye out for ageism. Maybe it's just something I don't notice because I'm not very aware of it. If I start noticing it as a common occurrence I shall report back to you.
Old people have really good stories, I like hearing about what their lives were like years ago, especially the ones who did lots of sexy drug stuff, and they tell you about how fucked up they got in the seventies, and they don't give a shit. Those stories are funny. I think it's because coming from an older person they're unexpected somehow. Maybe that's ageist of me though? See, I'm keeping a watchful eye already.
Day ten is a fruit you dislike and why... Ehh... Come back for that, that should be interesting. I'm angry about that already. Fruit is amazing. What sort of thing is that to talk about or write about?
