Out of Character

Out of character is not out of life
Out of character is out of place
Your character is what you are known for
Not what you perceive yourself to be
You might be a thing that’s waiting to explode
But what people see is a cool kid
That’s your character
So the day you explode
You are ‘out of character’
The day your phone malfunctions
It is out of character
And when it rains
The DSTV is always out of character

My darling friend Uju of TML (Through Mirrored Lens), nominated me for this ‘Freestyle writing challenge‘ and as the saying above suggest, it is not the same challenge and it is not the same me. The Topic she gave was ‘Tell us something out of Character‘. You all should go over to her blog on pathsonwater.com/ and check out her writings, she’s got a voice you will love.

The Rules

1. Open a blank document.
2. Set a stopwatch timer to 5 or 10 minutes, whichever length you prefer.
3. Your topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH YOUR TIMER!!!
4. Once you start writing do not stop until the alarm sounds! Do not cheat by going back and correcting spelling and grammar using spell check (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write with correct spelling and grammar.)
5. You may or may not pay attention to punctuation or capitals
6. At the end of your post write down the number of words to give an idea of how much you can write within the time Frame.
7. Put the whole document onto your post and nominate 5 others and give them a new topic. Remember to copy paste the rules in!

My nominations include all those reading this, please join in the fun of sharing an impromptu writing with the world and if you don’t have a platform/ blog to share you writing on, I will be glad to share this platform with you. Just send an email to adetayotola {at} gmail {dot} com with the subject ‘Freestyle writing Challenge – YourName
