Message from Writer

Writing's never been my strong suit - I've always found math much easier. There's always been something that's intrigued me about writing, though, especially creative writing. I'm hoping that by joining Write the World I can develop my writing style and learn to write in different genres. I am also hoping that learning to write better will help me with my songwriting, which is something that I really enjoy but occasionally struggle with because I can't find the right words. Also college admissions are this year and I want to be able to write a tolerable essay.

9 types of people on Zoom meetings

May 22, 2020

PROMPT: Enumeration

31
1. The person who doesn't know when to mute themself.
Seriously, dude, no one needs to hear you arguing with your mom.
2. The baker.
I'm sure whatever it is is good but we don't need a shot of the side of your cutting board as you chop fruit.
3. The "multitasker".
We know you're watching Netflix. You're not smooth.
4. The person who put a picture of themself in front of the camera and left.
You haven't blinked in 10 minutes. I'm a bit suspicious.
5. The complainer.
We know you hate quarantine. We all do. Get over it.
6. The person with the unusual background.
Is that a meme? Yeah, and I'm pretty sure it's from 2016.
7. The "how do you use technology?' person.
Is it that hard to figure out how to share your screen?
8. The ghost.
Their video and sound are turned off. Who knows what they're doing. Most likely, they are not paying attention.
9. The person who left 5 minutes in.
Or most likely, never showed up at all.
 
(disclaimer: I'm guilty of like 4 of these. No shade to anyone out there who does these)

    Wasn't feeling too called out until I read #8...I'm way too guilty of this but usually it's just bc I'm either watching netflix or don't want to put in the effort to look good lol :)
