Story Idea - Work Connections

Work environments can be the place of great accomplishment or great frustrations. The wonderful reason to write about a work environment is that there is always a protagonist and an antagonist built in…Plot yourself as the hero or the villain, but create the plot, setting, and storyline from what you know.

Maybe it was during the corporate takeover…Or, perhaps, it was just an ordinary lunch gathering with you joking, laughing, and telling stories when she showed up…You know, the one from down the hall. You have passed her so many times. You have worked on project teams together. You have never thought about anything else together except for work…that is until today…as she sits in the only chair available…the one next to you…Energy expands, electricity excites, and it’s not just static cling…

OK, maybe it didn’t happen like that, maybe it was something completely different. However, think about your moments. Think about your stories from the one place where you spend the majority of your time…work. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
