I would like to buy a vowel, please, Alex...

I would like to buy an AAAAAAAAAAA... whew! Okay, now that I've got that out of my system...

Remember way back when when you first started writing and you were told to write what you know? Use inspiration from your family, school, friends, work, etc. Well, if I were to do that I would have a very angry book on my hands. I, like many people, spend the majority of my time at the day job. My book would be angry because there are things I dream of saying and doing while at the day job that never get to come out. However, if I were to write about said job in a book all those suppressed thoughts, actions and emotions would spill over onto the pages. I'd have murder and mayhem and drama and probably more murder. I could tell people that I am still employed because believe it or not I really do know how to do my job. I don't need mirco-managed, and even though it makes you feel more secure, I don't need my hand held. Yes, this book would have a main character who had a pleasant demeanor to start, but then would morph into Alice from the Dilbert comics. You know Alice, right? Pointy red hair, has fist of death (I'm so jealous!) and she punches holes (literal holes, mind you) into coworkers. Yes, that chick is my idol.

So tonight, after a 12-hour day, I will go home, indulge in a glass of wine, and release all of my frustrations onto the screen. Watch out computer, I have a story to write!!
