I really didn’t want to do this prompt. Mainly because I couldn’t think of anything. It’s hard putting words into the mouth of a hero. Especially one I know only vaguely. I’ve listened to the beginning half of “The Narnian,” but it would seem that even audiobooks can’t escape the curse of my only reading a book halfway through. Although the point isn’t to have things to say at the word go. This is an exercise to get my literary mind pumping. I want to be good and the only way that is possible is to do this daily. The next few months will be increasingly difficult. I have inadvertently double booked myself with school. For a brief moment I even contemplated adding participation into a theatrical endeavor and then remembered I would go berserk. Below is a pitiful effort, but I got more than I thought I could do. That is, at least, saying something for my imagination.

@CS_Lewis No one thought my manuscript was up to snuff. I guess it’s in to the kindling pile.
@CS_Lewis I came across this old bit I’d penned some time ago. Can’t imagine why I’d throw it away.
@CS_Lewis For loathing allegory as much as he does, John certainly pushes a belief in symbolism of legends.
@CS_Lewis After much deliberation I have once again returned to the church of childhood. It feels warm and wonderful in the pew.
@CS_Lewis On this day I have lost one of my dearest friends. He was afflicted with homosexuality, but I did not care.
@CS_Lewis It must be Wednesday if I’m meeting with some grubby chaps at The Eagle.
@CS_Lewis Bloody Americans and their endless thirst. Only one pub open tonight.
@CS_Lewis It becomes increasingly apparent that someone does not know me truly if they call me Clive.

@CS_Lewis Who doesn’t enjoy a warm pint now and again.
