Hello listeners, readers, and writers! It’s time for our next Garage Fiction weekly prompt. Prompt #53 was provided by GF member Senna. Our deadline for this submission is Friday, March 3rd.
Senna took one look at the group and sighed, her disappointment plain. When she spoke, it was with Heath Ledger’s voice, ‘Why so serious?’
(I’m not even kidding. I think she had the makeup on, too!)
As a remedy for all of the seriousness…seriosity?…serial-seriousli…ness?…she prescribed:
The French CanCan! Animation (by artist Kevin Gemin – aka Kekeflipnote)
“It is a funny video from an animator guy I like. And it just makes me happy. Sometimes it seems everyone is trying to write some sweeping drama. But remember that sadness and excitement aren’t the only things you can make people feel. There is a power in writing and art to be a little absurd, silly, cheeky… and bring a smile to people’s faces.”
Remember to unfurrow those brows and laugh a little. Or a lot. But not too much because straightjackets.
Until next time, good luck with your words. We’ll see you in the garage.
