Weekend Reads #27: Writing Myths #5 & #6: You wanna know where we’re from?

It’s November 14. I’m supposed to write something every day, even if I don’t post it on here, but it’s been 4 days since I’ve written anything. It’s been a busy week at work. By the time I get home, the last thing I want to do is write, or think. All I want to do is just tune out from the world for bit and float in a sea of silence and nothingness.

Reading isn’t much better either. I’m still reading Haggard’s She and though I’m almost at its end, its interminable boringness is making me want to pick it up less so now I’m heading into my third week of reading it. Anyways, I didn’t intend this to be some sort of journal post. I just wanted to let you know what’s up, in case you were wondering.

As you can see, I’m being lazy and am combining a Weekend Reads post with a Writing Myths one. I don’t feel up for two heavy writing posts right now so I’m doing it all in one. In case you’re wondering, Weekend Reads is a weekly discussion on a variety of topics. At the end of the post, I’ll include what I plan to read on the weekend. (And since I already mentioned She above, I won’t bother mentioning it below.)

And, obviously, this weekend’s topic is one from the Writing Myths list. Writing Myths is a writing assignment I’ve given myself for the month of November. I just realized that I’ve never posted the list of topics for Writing Myths so I’ve attached it to my first post, if you’d like to see it.

I’m now on prompt #5, which is:

Write a myth to explain why the grass is green.

Since I’ve done that here, I’ll skip this one and go to prompt #6:

Write a myth to explain where human beings come from.
