The Imago of Wolfman Jack (a.k.a The 2nd Platform Builder's Challenge)
Write a blog post in 200 words or less, excluding the title. It can be in any format, whether flash fiction, non-fiction, humorous blog musings, poem, etc. The blog post should:
include the word "imago" in the title
include the following 4 random words: "miasma," "lacuna," "oscitate," "synchronicity,"
If you want to give yourself an added challenge (optional and included in the word count), make reference to a mirror in your post.
For those who want an even greater challenge (optional), make your post 200 words EXACTLY!
[DISCLAIMER-- I have 200 words WITH the title-- I read excluding as including :-)]
The Imago of Wolfman Jack
“That was Tonight, Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae. Our Truth, by Lacuna Coil, takes us to the top of the hour and your requests.”
Janis flipped the switches, sending the new tune rocking out across the airwaves and leaned back. She stared at the glass wall, the dark room beyond making the surface reflect like a mirror, picturing her mentor, Wolfman Jack, doing the same.
The night seemed to oscitate before her, begging her to fill the void as the hero of her youth had. Looking down at the request list, she cringed. It seemed each song Nick had scrawled on the page was a miasma. With all the other stations polluting the airwaves, she hesitated to add to it with this so-called music. What would the idol of her youth, her idol of today, have done?
“Nick,” she said into her headset, conscious of the time remaining on the song.
“We need to find a new playlist,” the two said in perfect synchronicity.
Janis laughed. “You know what they say about great minds.”
“Yeah,” Nick winked, handing her a new list. “They make great friends, and better boyfriends.”
Have a great Monday!
