WPW: The First Entry

**Hi all, welcome to another Writing Prompt Wednesday. Won't you play along? The guidelines are simple, and I'd love to read what you come up with.**

Dear Diary,
Before we begin, there is something you should know about me, your narrator. You should know that the narrator a selfish asshole. It's all me, me, me, all the time. My therapist, or, rather, my ex-therapist, foolishly suggested that there was some kind of problem with this. But, what does he know? It's not like a Ph.D from Harvard suddenly makes you king of the universe. Jackass.

Anyway, Diary, now it's just you and me. Well, I mean, me and you. Except, really, you're just an extension of me anyway, so when you get right down to it, it's just me and me. And that, that is the way it should be. So, today is the first day of me telling myself all about me. I can't wait to get started.

Just me and me, the way it should be. I love it.

Very, very nice, as is Jenny's piece that contributed the line.

A style I hadn't seen here from you before, or perhaps I'm reading too much into so few words - regardless, very nice!


Jenny said...

Ha! I love this one. Who knew something so selfish could speak to so many?

Debbie said...

I love it.

And isn't that all that matters?
