Did you watch the Oscars last night? Enjoy the fantastic gowns? Spot the botox-laden stars? Enjoy Ben Stiller’s impersonation? I enjoyed it when Kate Winslet mentioned her childhood fantasy of winning an Oscar in front of her bathroom mirror, using a shampoo bottle in place of the Oscar statue.
Exercise: You have just won an Oscar or perhaps a Pulitzer or another major literary award. What is it for? Write your acceptance speech. Write the pitch for whatever you won. Write the bookjacket or p.r. blurb for what won! Send it to me and we’ll post them if you are brave enough! Accept the challenge. It can be fun!
