I have been remiss in writing.
This makes me sad because I truly like writing here (and everywhere.) And I love sharing what I write and hearing what you all think about it. I miss you all.
But. And this is a big one. I have no idea what to talk about.
My well has run dry.
I can’t talk about how woe-is-me it is to be all alone and blah-blah-blah. And I’m not even woe-y about it. I’m cool. I’m good.
I can’t talk about work. Oh…how I wish I could. But that would be dangerous, and I am not in a place where dangerous is part of my to-do list. That will have to wait for later.
So. I want to write. I don’t have anything to say.
And then I found THIS BOOK (at Anthropologie -the place where everything is better.) And angels sang…and I got an idea.
WHAT IF…I write stuff from in here?? AND…
WHAT IF YOU PICK WHICH ONES??
I am guessing we won’t get to ALL 642 of them…but let’s play around a bit with random writing.
And kind of terrifying.
I warn you, I am NOT a fiction writer. So what I come up with may very possibly suuuuucccckkkkk. But it’s good for me (and everyone) to do stuff that I suck at, to stop sucking at it quite so much. I am going to stop saying suck now.
Here are the ground rules:
1) I will not write about sex. Won’t. Don’t try to talk me into it.
2) I will not write about anything that will upset my mother. Or my children. Or my grandfather. Or…you get the idea.
3) I cannot write about my current workplace. I can write about OTHER places and people, but not this one.
Pick a number between 1 and 642 and let’s get this party started!
NOTE: If you want to play along, I will tell you what the writing prompt is before I start writing (or get yourself a copy of the super fun book!) and if you post your piece on your own blog or other online forum, then when I post MINE you can put YOURS in the comments and I’ll add a link “shout-out” for it. Cool? I KNOW!!
