Recently I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired when it comes to writing. Excluding reviewing the odd EP or interviewing a few artists, I don’t remember the last time I sat down to write for fun, or just for me. It’s something I’ve been moaning about for quite some time now without actively doing anything positive to change it, until now.
After hearing me whine on for months, for Christmas my other half bought me an incredible book to rekindle my desire to write for enjoyment . Written by the San Francisco Writers’ grotto the book is called ‘642 Things to Write About‘ and contains, well you guessed it – 642 things to write about.
Having flicked through and cast my first impressions what I like most about this book is how nonrestrictive each of the topics are. Some are serious while others are silly. None seem particularly demanding and they all do well to provoke different thoughts from varied perspectives. This is why I’ve decided to give it a go and will be sharing each piece on this blog, along with anything else that inspires me to write.
I’m setting myself the challenge of writing two small pieces a week, or one big one if that’s where my ideas take me.
Feel free to write me with any feedback you may have, or if you would like to share anything similar you’re doing with me. I’d love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading and I hope you stumble across something you enjoy.
