It’s drizzling and windy outside, and has been for three hours. The rain splattering against the windowpane is quite soothing, but if it thunders, the dog will go bark-o-rama. While zoning out, I found a website that gives you ideas for blog posts or journal entries. Don’t know if any of them will interest y’all, but here are the best ones it came up with for me.
If your favorite smell was a color, what color would it be? (Mine’s easy. Orange IS a smell AND a color AND a flavor! All good, except now that I can’t eat fruit, I have to settle for that diet orange soda, and it’s made from resin of something *ick*.)
Write about that package you were afraid to open. (That could be a real package, an imaginary one, or a metaphorical one that’s symbolic.)
Publish the results of some research you’ve done. (Wow . . . that could take years.)
Explain why you believe in God.
Explain why your mother should have apologized to you.
Write about something that makes you angry.
Write about your most boring date.
Enumerate the unusual items in your junk drawer. Add photos. (Too revealing. . . .)
What’s your favorite nonsense word? (Leebossa. Ankendosh. Ick-en-spick. [All from _The Secret Language_ by Ursula Nordstrom.] Frotzimeister. Zamma. [The sound of someone you’re ignoring or dozing off to, such as a teacher or boss. “He was going on about it, zamma, zamma, zamma, and then he asked me a question!”])
Compare the pros and cons of an issue.
Form a blog review group and review each other’s blogs. (Er, maybe not.)
The website is here, if you want to take your chances with it.
Or you could just think up topics on your own!
