Connect the Dots
Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.
Almost anything to do with The View is entirely uninteresting to me. Bunch of snarky women sitting there interrupting each other. No appeal. At all.
However, the other day I saw an item on a sidebar of something else I was reading about an interview they did with Ben Carson. First of all, I’m amazed they actually had him on. Second, I’m surprised they didn’t tar and feather him on his way out. Third, he handled them all beautifully in his quiet, unassuming way as they did everything they could to make him look bad. It was a fascinating video clip to watch.
How it applies to me? Well, I’m certainly not going to be voting for anyone the women on that program approve of. I watched a short clip of an interview they did with Michelle, and they way they fawned on her and bowed and scraped made me nauseous. I also remember seeing a short clip of their interview with Mrs. Mitt Romney. The air was full of ice. She, too, handled their unfriendliness with grace.
These people are always screaming tolerance at us, yet they are palpably intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them. I do not watch their program. I will look at a clip now and then, mostly to see how much more liberal they’ve become and how their conservative victims handle the nasty treatment they get on the show.
A five-minute video clip is all I can handle.

I don’t watch The View…ever, but my reasons aren’t the same as yours. I appreciate your comments, however, and admire you for tuning them out.
I want to send you a little compliment today for your persistence in responding to these prompts. I read a prompt and mutter to myself, “Humpf, don’t have anything to say about that!” Then I read what you write. It amazes me that you are so good at mining the prompts and make connections come to life in your words. You call your blog “A place to improve my writing skills, and that’s all.” How’s that working for you? My guess is that it has been very positive.
PS Love the October header.

Wow. Thank you so much. Actually, I can’t be the judge of whether or not my stated purpose is working for me. I do see a steady increase in readership and comments, so I guess that can be a guide.
And frankly, sometimes I think the prompts are kind of lame; however, it’s good mental exercise to see what I can do with them.
I appreciate your comments and encouragement very much.
I agree about the View.
