“________ is the new _______”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “______ is the new ______.”

Click over to your favorite blog, and pick out the 4th and 14th words (that aren’t “the” or “an”). Drop them into this phrase:

Before I completely read the daily prompt, my thoughts immediately were of the Netflix original show called, “Orange is the new Black.”

The shows main character is a woman who has been convicted of drug smuggling she was involved in several years prior to her current personal life. She has established a successful relationship with a struggling male writer and began a personal business venture that will dwindle with her being incarcerated.

The story centers around her experiences as an inmate, that includes the various adjustments she endures, the relationships she encounters and avoids. The dramatic appearance of the woman who she was in league with during their drug smuggling days.

I know, I did not follow the instructions of the daily prompt, but this is flash fiction and what I wrote are my immediate thoughts, reflecting in my fingers to type what you have read.

  1. I have seen that show listed in the Netflix line-up that last year or so, but have not had a chance to check it out. However, it reminded of another very old women’s prison show, “Prisoner: Cell Block H.” I watched it, and really loved it, and I remember the music was beautiful. Thanks for the memory. I also tried out this prompt, on a whim last evening while visiting around blogs. 🙂

      1. I like that thought: a great rainy day watch. I’m always looking for something new. I’ve just started watching LOST again, because a lot of what I want to watch on Netflix is not streaming, and we’re already watching one DVD series right now. When that’s done, I’m going to try Game of Thrones. But “Orange is the New Black,” is streaming I know, so soon, I should be able to fit it in. 🙂

  2. As long as you keep writing my friends, rules are meant to be broken, in writing it does make something stand out more if done right! I still enjoyed the read 🙂
