12-DAY RUST REMOVAL

OK, I haven’t stopped writing at least something every chance I get. It’s the posting.  I feel I have to “blog with a purpose” but I keep forgetting this is MY blog and I can write whatever the heck I want, dammit.  I’m supposed to be capturing and sharing my growth.

Alrighty then, a nice little exercise to wake up my Muse, courtesy Writer’s Digest.  They have a good idea to kickstart the new year:

A 12-Day Plan of Simple Writing Exercises

Ahhhh, a loophole the lazy/busy part of me can manipulate – they didn’t say consecutive days. Still, a good way to get the posting rust removed.

So no more thinking, plotting, wondering. Let ‘er rip!

Day 1:  Write 10 potential book titles of books you’d like to write.

I know my heart leans more towards magazine articles, and the true ones I have in mind  I think I’ll keep in the safe.  But in the spirit of the exercise, here are articles, essays, and maybe books I’d write:

  1.  Whiskey, Women, and Prison Time: Country Singer or Rapper?
  2. The Untold Stories of African-Americans and WWII Espionage
  3. The Making of “Me”
  4. When You Can’t Catch a Break
  5. Proving You’re Saved
  6. Power Couple
  7. Three Chains and a Cane: The Story of the World’s Oldest Rapper
  8. The 21st Century Prophets: Street Preachers
  9. The First Inventor: The First Person Who Discovered How to Create Fire
  10. Paths Not Taken

Hey, that was fun !

Whaddya think?  Which should I tackle first?
