Sell Me This Pen

I finally got around to watching The Wolf of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio (Scorsese et al, 2014). Anyone who has seen this movie will appreciate this exercise! This movie has inspired me to sell you this pen.

What does this look like to you?

A pen? … perhaps.

But it is so much more than that.

It is a tool, an instrument. A keeper of dreams, secret affairs, stories that no one knows but you. It can unravel the mysteries of your mind.

This is not just a pen. It is a key. To other worlds, to other dimensions. It unlocks information. Words that you need to get out to the world, speak, take note of quickly before they begin to lose their shape and form and disappear forever into the ether, unsatisfied.

This pen is magical. It is the ultimate communicator. It has the power to transcend time and space. To create that which travels throughout the ages long after you, my friend, will be dust.

So. Are you interested? Would you care to buy this pen? Because it will change your life. It will change you. The sky will no longer be the limit. This pen can take you to places you’ve only dreamed of.

So what are you waiting for. Shall I wrap it up for you? There is no time to waste. Of course we have boxes. But this pen prefers to be wild and free. Here. Take the reins right now and hold on tight. It is yours. Now go and write. Write quickly like your life depends on it. Write quickly like the pen is your sailboat skimming across the ocean’s surface, guided by the sun and fuelled by the wind, as you navigate your way around the world. Time is passing and we need to hear what you have to say. Harness the power contained in this pen and you harness the life force flowing through your veins. There is no telling where the next page will take you. And soon you will have completed a chapter. And then before you know it, you’ll be onto the next book.

All that exists is words. And in words you will find your power. So tell me. How much is this pen worth to you?

And now I put the challenge out to you. Sell me this pen. Sell me this pen!
