Writing 101: Your Voice Will Find You

Written in response to Writing 101: Your Voice Will Find You.

I found this difficult, not because of the twist but because I found little inspiration from the prompt. The twist was easy as I routinely read my posts aloud to my SO. I am still posting what I wrote but be warned that it is far from my best work. Read at your own peril.

This was it.

Years of planning and dedication down the drain.

It wasn’t that the town decided against holding a centennial celebration. Oh no. It was much worse than that.

They decided to let the new intern finish planning it. The intern who had never set foot in this town before being hired. Jillian, the intern who only works two days a week, is taking over my baby.

And the council didn’t have the guts to tell me.

I didn’t even know she was on the project until she asked for the password to the centennial laptop.

I didn’t know they had replaced me until I walked into one of the centennial meetings. The meeting I heard about through the receptionist who didn’t know I wasn’t told.

It wouldn’t have been that bad. I could understand that they wanted Jillian to have a project all her own. I remember how hard it is to start out in this business.

But to be told my years of planning were “good effort” but not needed? That hurt.

To be told that “they didn’t want to cause any drama”? That hurt even more.

I just wish I could do more than watch as they butcher my baby. When the centennial plans don’t work out, I will be there with my plans and my ideas to get us through.

Because what else can I do?

The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
