Just Write (38)

I entered a new world this weekend.

One of the hats I wear involves lots of beer. As part of my professional responsibilities, I had to spend the weekend at the Great American Beer Fest in Denver.  Over three days, 49,000 peopled descend on the convention center to drink 2700 beers from 580 breweries. This is roughly like stumbling into the illegitimate offspring of Mardi Gras and a trade show. With lederhosen. 

While I drink a lot of water and detox, you all should try this writing prompt:

Imagine a world within a world--something that could or does actually exist--and use it as the setting for your writing this morning. What are the rules, ethics, and rituals of this world? Are there costumes, outfits, or pretzel necklaces? Create this unique realm for your reader, allowing them to see the complexities at work, to smell and touch the weirdness of these little pockets within our big culture. 600 words should do just fine.
