Rants. A well-written rant is witty, intelligent, funny, and can be inspiring. They are fun to read, and write. The point of a rant is not to vent, but to communicate to others why you’re provoked, or emotional. Let your passion flow. The best rants get carried away, but remember there’s always two sides to every issue. The best rants have a narrow focus and take aim at something specific.
Here’s a great example of a rant from freelance writer LZ Granderson. You may not agree with him, but he gets his point across.
Today’s prompt: In no more than 300 words give us your best rant. Rants can be cutting, sarcastic, scholarly, or just plain funny. You pick the tone. What bugs you? What drives you completely insane? What’s got you riled up? Don’t keep it inside, let it out! Post your rant here in the comments, or leave a link to your blog/website/google doc instead.
