Means of Procrastination–Carnival of the Mundane

I’ve been sitting in front my computer for hours, trying to figure out how make a short story for my narrativity theory class work.  It’s about how the small scents and sights of life can transport us to other times and places.  Which, if you think about it, is a fairly mundane story topic.  While I sort all this out, why don’t we go and see how other people handle the mundane.

    I loved the spam filter poem. Have you ever read a piece of writing and wish you’d been the one to write it? (That’s the kind of clever I’ve always wanted to be.)

    Hope your writer’s block isn’t too enduring.
