Wednesday Writing Prompt for December 16, 2015
My Introductory post .
The prompt for today is: hype
This is what I wrote:
I’m one of those people where the more something is hyped, the less likely I’ll be interested in it. For example, a few years ago I went home for the holidays and was watching a Mythbusters marathon while I worked on a story. I don’t know how many episodes in I was before I noticed that is seemed every commercial break there was something related to Avatar . I’m not talking about trailers for the movie, but “Avatar shakes, only at Fancy Burger,” stuff like that. This overpromotion made me dislike the movie before I ever saw it. I disliked it even more after I saw it, but that’s another story. I bring this up now, because there is a movie coming out Friday that has been getting a lot of hype. Perhaps you’ve seen ads for “The Force Awakens tacos,” or something. Now I have some reasons why I’m feeling “meh” about The Force Awakens , but all the hype around it has not helped.
How do you feel about overhyped things?
