gerbrand-van-den-eeckhout-scholarI hates the maths! I hates them! Hates them I do! Sorry, I’ve been studying math for the last five days straight for the GRE and I would swear that every problem is different. I finally figure out how to solve one problem correctly, and as soon as I do the next one is completely different. Honestly, tomorrow I start into my paper comparing Mengzian moral development with the philosophy of C. S. Lewis, and I’m really looking forward to it. Joy does not equal math. It does not even show equivalence to math. It is not less than or equal to math, nor is it greater than or equal to math. Honestly, it’s more similar to comparing base 2 math and base 10 math. The comparison just doesn’t make any sense. Anyway, I hope that you are all having a better week than I am (math wise at least)! I know that you’re here for a scene challenge. If you can’t remember the rules, I’ll provide them: I provide you with specific rules for how to write a particular scene.  Try to keep your scene under five hundred words, and try to keep it in the same tone as the introduction.  If I give a line that is very dark and depressing, then I don’t want to see a scene about a drunken monkey in a tutu…it just doesn’t fit.  If I do give you a line about a drunken monkey in a tutu, then you should probably try for a funny scene.

Your rules: You task this week is to write a scene of at least 300 words in sentences of no more than six words. If you’ve been following the blog then you’ve seen this challenge before. Remember to make sure that the scene is grammatically correct, and that it flows well. Again, you might want to give it to a grammar nazi after you finish to make sure that your grammar is solid. Your cue: “”Oy!’ Simon moaned, ‘Not this again…'”

  1. Pfft, you think base 2 vs base 10 is confusing? Try studying Roman numeral math! Actually, don’t. Really, really don’t. Math without a single, clear base is just madness!
