Writing Prompt: Imagined Social Networking Profile



I started on Friendster, then moved to Myspace before migrating to Facebook and LinkedIn and today I’m on Google +. It is exciting and exhausting to continue to start over on each new social networking site. (It is even more exhausting to think about all of the social networking sites I mostly ignore, like Twitter.)

For today's writing prompt, write the profile you would (probably) never publish. Who are you? How do your dreams and fears define you today, in this moment?

Write non-stop for five to ten minutes and then go back and underline the key lines/ideas/images that emerge.

I'd love to read your piece or responses to the exercise below in the Comments section.
