What do you all make of Harper Lee?
I mean, obviously she went to the same Passive-Aggressive Secret and Silent Public Relations school as JD “The Secluded” Salinger, whereas Salinger specialized more in the art of silently aggressive relations and she more in the silently passive sort.
I mean, come on… You write one of the bestest novels in the history of novels and then go virtually dark for sixty years and then all of a sudden you’re like, “Hey, lookie everyone what I just found here attached to the back of one of the bestest novel manuscripts in the history of novel manuscripts!”
Yeah, I know… Weird.
And not to mention all the weird that surrounds her bestest first novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Some even speculate that she didn’t even write it – or at least most of it; that her bestest buddy Truman Capote, in an effort to win her lifelong affection – because we all know the great TC was all about being liked – wrote it for her.
Anyway… Who knows.
Sure wish I did.
But in the absence of knowledge, let’s make up some weird.
For today’s WEIRD WEDNESDAY prompt…
Write something weird, be it a poem, limerick, essay, flash fiction (750ish words or less), stream of consciousness, whatever, about a secret meeting between Harper Lee, Truman Capote, and JD Salinger for the purpose that is yours to determine.
And by the way, by weird I do not mean perverse regardless how well this opportunity of a prompt may provide for it. Just saying…
may explain things a bit about the prompts.
provides some Harper Lee context.
