Writing in 5th Person

      Recently, while sitting at my computer, I felt a light tap on my shoulder. Turning to see what is was, as I had thought myself quite alone, I saw absolutely nothing. That's when I heard the voice.
      "hello kyle"
      I sat frozen. If you've never heard a disembodied voice in person before, it can be a startling event.
      "Hello?" I ventured, not knowing what else to say.
      "Who are you?"
      "i am not a who"
      "Okay, then what are you?"
      "i am your creativity"
      "My creativity?"
      "yes i am the spirit sent to imbue you with creative thought"
      "Are you sure I haven't just gone insane?"
      "So it's your job to help me come up with things to write about, right?"
      "not only that but i will also aid you throughout the entire creative process"
      "No offense, but you seem kinda shit. I mean, you're supposed to help me write, but you don't even use capitalization or punctuation."
      "how can you tell"
      It was then that the fourth wall collapsed.


  1. Is writing a conversation is your head 5th person?

  2. What an odd way to write, I've never heard of a "5th person" when I was taught English. Interesting post sir.

  6. This was an interesting perspective - to be honest I don't think I have enough imagination to come up witch such things. I'd love to have a chat with my creativity one day; I do need that.
