It's Not You. It's Me.

It was all about subtext at the Honors Hall RFL apartment last night. Just in time for Valentine's Day we tried our best pick up lines and break up lines, and let me tell you, these Honors Hallians have some good ones. 

We started the night subtext free. We each came up with a break up reason, passed it to the left, and then wrote the scene without subtext. We struggled, finding out that when we talk to people by saying exactly what we mean, the conversation kind of dies. It turns out, we like to evade the truth. 

So, we ended the night doing just that. We each came up with a location and an activity (Starbucks ordering coffee, buying one item at the grocery store, someone ordering carnations, etc) and wrote a romantic scene, a scene where two people like each other but haven't yet worked up the nerve to ask each other out. Innuendoes ensued as did charm and romance and a few moments where we all said "aw" together. It was a lovefest just in time for the loveliest day of the year. 

Come join us for our next writing session, Tuesday February 26 at 7:00 p.m. There will be goodies and prizes and plenty of writing galore, so stop on by the Honors Hall RFL apartment. You won't be sorry (and that was said subtext free).
