I have a confession to make. Sometimes the oddest things get stuck in my head. For example, today I was reading this post about Monkeys by David Thorne on 27b/6 (caution: this site may offend some people) and suddenly found myself humming a new song based on the tune “If I had a Hammer.”
If I had a monkey,
I’d monkey in the morning…
I’d monkey in the evening,
all over this land…
Catchy, huh? Hey, it’s been a long week, okay? At least it’s not “The Llama Song.”
Now I bet you are asking yourself, what does all of this have to do with the weekend writing assignment? Would you believe the assignment involves monkeys? Of course you would. You are a clever bunch, aren’t you?
This weekend, take your cue from the monkeys described at 27b/6. Yes, many monkeys have been covered by this extensive list, but you are bound to think of others. What kind of monkey do you need and why do you need it? Yes, of course you do. Don’t argue.
Okay, if you insist that you don’t need a monkey, invent a character and give him (or her) one. Either way, write a brief passage describing the monkey. What’s his job? Why is it important?
