Computer freezing, web-sites lost, windows opening and closing on the screen; we’ve all been there. But I swear there’s a ghost, not a virus, in this machine and it’s out to get me. White snow blots the image of the page. White noise; then speakers stutter and whirr. “They’re here…”
Challenge: Write something (prose or poetry; fiction, nonfiction, or essay) about this picture. Put yourself in there or one of your kids, friends, or neighbors. Go off on a tangent and explain how all writers are a bit crazy -- and don’t confine yourself to writers, think about all computer users.
