Writer’s Block #3

21 Aug

August 21, 2013

More writer’s block! Curses and drat! Dag-nab it! Back to the list of odd but real writing prompts used by real schools across the country. Amazing what you can find online. Today’s odd prompt: Make a bold prediction about something in the year 2020 that no one else has made a bold prediction about. (University of Virginia, 1999)

2020! Year of awe and mystery!

2020! Year of mystery and awe!

2020! Year of awful mystery!

I predict that the year 2020 will be a year of people who defy prediction, who, tired of being a part of The University of Virginia’s silly entrance procedure, will erect a bubble of unpredictability around themselves, with the result being that the year 2020 cannot be predicted.

And also, everyone dies when a single lion in the Bronx Zoo learns to talk and rallies all the cats of the world to turn on the humans.
