working you into a lather


– 29 June 2014 –

Happy Sunday!

It is said that preventing someone from doing what they love, which they do well, can cause insanity. 

The classic example in the arts is, of course, Iago; had he received the promotion he believed he deserved (and may well have), maybe Othello wouldn’t be a tragedy.

Today’s prompt is as much a thought-exercise as a writing one: search your life, even the ancillaries, for folks whose behavior reminds you even in a small way of the paradigm above. Focus on one person whose life might be VERY different if they had a job they loved. Or, focus on one who, if pushed, could wreak the kind of havoc Iago did.

Do you know where I’m going with this? I’m thinking perhaps you do.

Happy writing!
