Time For They Are Among Us

 


Did you know they were here? What did you think they meant when you read it? Are you so conditioned by they that you go to little green men? Maybe the men like it that way. They could be green or blue or pink or solid white too. Can't leave any out these days. Then the men would go all cancel culture on you. Can't have that. All little whatever color men can probe collectively as equals. I should get on with it before the little yellow men point out that I missed them. Not to mention, even though I'm mentioning them, the little whatever color women. And the question is:

What would make you quit writing?

Umm I guess if little green men invaded and killed me, abducted me, or something like that. And you know....DEATH. I'd quit then I suppose. Unless ghosts can write. Maybe then I'd write on windows and screw with people.

Oh...and if someone paid me 10 million dollars never to write again or something close to that. That would do it. I may not come cheap, but I can be bought. Any takers?

Other than that I think I'm stuck writing in some form or another. May not write much for months or maybe years if life were to get truly in the way, but I don't think I'd ever out and out quit. Unless the above occurred or maybe something like death-adjacent happens and I loose all my limbs. Could be rough to write then.

What would make you quit something you enjoy? Have you quit anything you once enjoyed?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

  1. I hope your cats would protect you from the little green men. Funny how you mentioned winning millions and how that'd affect your writng. Someone else just talked about that too.

  2. I quit playing piano because I no longer had access to one. Now I’m just too lazy to practice. Honestly, I think laziness trumps most things in life, even enjoyment.

    1. Laziness or the want not to work hard at something sure can take over.

  3. Even with millions, you'd be writing in your head. It's in your blood - unless the little green men suck it out of you. Now, that could end the career.
    Hope you are having an excellent summer!

    All the best.

  6. I agree, 10 million dollars would likely do it!

  7. It seems drastic measures would be the only things to stop you from writing. Let's hope the first is far in the future and second a pipe dream--lovely to contemplate.

    1. Lovely indeed. And yeah, I'm good with the first being far far away.

  9. Would you really 'quit' if they gave you 10 million dollars, or would you still write and not care if it published or not? I think I would still write and take the money. :)

    1. I'd probably still write and take the money. Just they'd never know

  10. Yep take the money and write in secret. What fun! Aren't pen names used for that purpose? :)

    1. But then if you get caught with the pen name they could take the 10 mil back lol

  13. "They are among us." I definitely thought of aliens if not little green men ~ LOL. It's hard to imagine you not writing, Pat, even for ten million bucks. You'd probably write secretly under a pen name to keep the money and write. I hope you're having a fun summer!

  14. I can definitely be bought, too. Other than family, I'd give up almost anything if the price was right.

    1. Yep. Family is about the only thing. Pay me enough and I'll give it up lol

  15. You'll always come back to it, even from the dead. LOL Love your goal of window writing as a ghost just to get it out of your system and scare a few people. hahaha You could do it now and take some creepy pictures of it. #whateverittakes

  16. You can write without limbs... technology is so good now. And if you got the millions, you'd probably still write, lol. If it's in your blood, it's in your blood. :)
