Every Friday I will add a new word, sentence or stanza.
In one or two words, you can then add what "emotional reaction" you had to it.
Have fun emoting!

"Hear the rain outside the window"

Serenity and Forks, WA!


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks Lilac - love those flowers!

My friend who lives in Seattle says it rains there all the time too. Thanks for posting, Alice.


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Welcome! I would love to see some rain. They sure got it in Colorado Springs. But they also got very bad hail there too. I would like to move to where it rains for a year or so. I am so tired of bright sunshine!

Lilac  (lilac_wales) | 127 comments Come to where I live, it rains for about half the year including today :) Hope it stops soon though 'cause I'm going camping


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi Lilac, where do you live? I live up in the mountains from Colorado Springs. I am recovering from our trip to WY.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Week #2 - what is your emotion on this line in one or two words:

"YOUR MIND IS MINE"

I live in North Wales and right by Snowdon (biggest mountain there) :)


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Lilac - thanks for posting. I love the Welsh language, it is so poetic and musical.


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh, how wonderful to live in Wales and right by Snowdon. I always wanted to visit there but never managed it. I had Welsh ancestors and so did my husband.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

It's Friday again! "Week #3" So far I'm loving what you write. Here's the next line - write one or two words on what is your emotional reaction:

Who told you not to cry?


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

anger


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Week #4 - Write one or two words expressing your emotion about this line:

THE CROWDS ARE CHEERING AT MY POWER

Katie (katiebakes641) | 75 comments Skepticism and apathy. If everyone's cheering, I'm wondering why.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks for the input Katie and Emma - 360 responses! This thread is so far showing me that some statements elicit a similar response despite context and others create varying emotions and would need more context to balance the statement. Great insights from you guys.

Glad to be helpful.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks Althea!

I've been away and will get back to posting a new sentence this Friday.

Fear. Anger. Hatred. Jealousy.
Fear: Power can be bad. Both for the person who has it and his/her surroundings.
Anger, jealousy, hatred: Why you? Why not me?

I know it's the wrong week and besides, I'm not even doing it correctly but the answer to the question is:

Me. The world. You.


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

WEEK #4 - write one or two words on what is your emotional reaction to the quoted line below.

Thanks so much, Alice. You are doing better than I am but since it is Friday I'll post another line. I'll give you all a hint too - these are some of the lyrics from my musical.

"WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?"


message 25: by Pirl (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) Shame. Anger.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

Good one, Pirl. Thanks.


message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks Althea. This is so interesting to see similar responses and also a nice twist. Really helpful.


message 29: by Mike (new)

Mike Frustration. Anger.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks, Mike. I'm starting to see a real depth in the character speaking the line, from these responses. Cool.


message 31: by Mike (new)

Mike You're welcome. This is a neat exercise and reading through it has been really interesting.

Thanks=)


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay, I forget what number week this is but I did remember that it's Friday, so here goes. What is your emotional response to the following word:

UM-M-M-M-M-M-M


message 34: by Katie (new)

Katie (katiebakes641) | 75 comments Confusion


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

Nothing to say.


message 36: by Pirl (last edited Aug 18, 2012 12:11PM) (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) Ugh, I forgot what I wanted to say! Again! I should go see a brain doctor. Oh wait, I remember! No I don't.
In two words: annoyance, confusion.

/

It's so ANNOYING when people forget what they want to say. God people, don't open your mouth if you don't know what you're going to say!
In two words: annoyance, sympathy.


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Great responses Katie, Nicola and Pirl. Fun.


message 38: by Mike (new)

Mike Sympathy and/or concern. "You ok?" or "Need some context to help you finish that thought." would be my typical responses.


message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

Isn't it amazing how many different perspectives come from one word... or maybe not even a word. Thanks, Mike!


message 40: by Amy (new)

Amy (amy_bookworm) | 504 comments Can anyone continue this?


message 41: by Pirl (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) Do you want to?


message 42: by Amy (new)

Amy (amy_bookworm) | 504 comments Perhaps- at least some weeks- it could be like the other competitions where somebody takes it every so often & it can be other people whenever. But... in short, suuuurrreee.


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm thrilled you want to continue this, Amy & Pirl. I have been ultra busy writing the script and had the first scene performed last Friday to get feedback (which went really well) so I've not been on Goodreads for a while. So, without further ado....

"HERE, MY DARLING, TAKE THIS LITTLE BLUE PILL."

This line was a turning point for the audience so I'm curious to understand more about the emotion of it. Much appreciated.


message 44: by Pirl (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) Danger.


message 45: by Amy (new)

Amy (amy_bookworm) | 504 comments Manipulation. I actually feel like somebody's trying to twist me round their finger. Plus, I don't think I should be taking blue pills XD


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

Haha, Amy! Please don't take any blue pills :-) I am aware of the reference to Viagra et al. and like that you joined in my fun. I'm so glad both you and Pirl had the same sense of the line because it could have been interpreted as a caring statement. You both caught my intention, so thanks!


message 47: by Pirl (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) Honey... it's a little blue pill.


message 48: by Amy (last edited Dec 14, 2012 11:35PM) (new)

Amy (amy_bookworm) | 504 comments Any drugs I'd say no to... Don't want to go there.
The phrase seemed condescending and controlling (caps wouldn't imply a caring attitude in the first place).
If it was like 'Take this Vitamin C' & so on... Then it wouldn't be drugs, whereas 'blue pill' seems secretive. If someone was hiding from me what it was, and more importantly, it's effects, I would react with suspicion.


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks for the clarification and extended assessment. Very helpful.


message 50: by Pirl (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) :D
