One-Liner Wednesday: Better Than Cryptic

#OneLinerWednesday #writingprompt

My two favorite “tailies” on LOST are Bernard and Mr. Eko. Bernard likes straight answers, even from faith healers. Mr. Eko goes from being literally brutally straightforward to mystically cryptic.

Bernard tells it like he sees it in this quote.

I think I liked you better when you just hit people with your stick.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Cryptic or straightforward?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I never watched Lost, but I think I can understand why you like this.

      It’s a surreal show. It goes from night to day to night to day in the same short sequence of time, and nobody ever comments on it. Nobody’s like, “We were just standing in the sunlight and now we’re using torches — What’s up with that?” It KILLS me! lol
