When a person writes stuff three times a week, like I do, one sometimes runs out of ideas and things to say (like three times a week.)
I read four or five books at once…well, not at once, but they are all situated in places that give me reading opportunity. (bedside, car, john, favorite chair in den, office)…I just listed five places and there is a book waiting at each now.
I forgot the three or four magazines I also have started. They are kept with the books and in other places. There are usually two magazines and the daily fishwrap at my small kitchen table. I’m the only one that eats there…usually breakfast and maybe some tea and cookies in the afternoon.
Many things I read give me ideas to write about in this space.
Then there are dozens of online links that are stocked with so-called writing prompts. WordPress, the host for this website, has a couple writers that are always sending out writing prompts. They are usually two or three strange sentences that are supposed to get me excited about a particular topic. I’ve never used one of their writing prompts…until today.
In fact I’m going to steal two or three today and not write about them but just throw them YOUR way and let you think about them. Maybe you want to write about them. Maybe you can write about them in the comments section below.
Whatever…don’t hurt yourself or take too much time out of your busy day, but here are a few things I could write about but don’t want too. Instead I encourage you to THINK ABOUT IT and make up your own answers. I bet they will be great!
- You have been exiled to a private island. Your captors will only supply you with FIVE foods. What do you pick?
- You wake up tomorrow morning and find all your plans and/or work has been cancelled for the next week. You find $10,000 cash lying on your dresser. Tell us about your next seven days!
- Take one coin out of your pocket (or chair cushion or jar) and look at the year printed on the coin. What were you doing that year?
HEY! Have a great weekend. I’m going to.
