It threw off my groove

August 23, 2010

You know, I was doing a pretty good job keeping up with my blog after I did the seven days of remembering.  Then July came and I was gone most of the month, and a few weeks ago I started a job, and it all just sort of threw off my groove.  I lost the habit of writing, and I lost the habit of thinking about what to write.  When I get like this introversion tends to take over and I become happy to just live inside my own head.  I forget to talk.  I forget to write.  And I don’t always realize that I’m doing that because my inner dialogue is still plenty active.

But my blog stats are blabbing.  I’ve posted three times this month and only twice in July.  I had an excuse for July, but this month has been about the loss of habit.

So I’m thinking it’s time to re-establish the habit.  It’s time to make myself write something every day, probably for a week, to get back into the swing of writing.

I need some help with a good prompt.  Anyone have an idea for a good prompt?  It should be something that doesn’t require huge amounts of writing unless I really have the time and energy, but it should require me to write about something specific on a daily basis.  The last time my prompt was anything I remember, from any point in my life.  That gave me a lot of room to choose short or long stories, which was good.

Anyone?  Anyone?  Bueller?

    How about writing every day about something that you see in or around your daily life on a regular basis — whether it’s a lamp or your car, a person or a piece of clothing? That way you give us a picture of some of your physical surroundings, and have a prompt at the same time.

    I love how “The Emperor’s New Groove” inspires you to write! =P

    How about something like this – – “Project 365” or “Project Life.” The concept is simple. Take a picture every single day and jot down the memory associated with the photo.

    You could do this for one week….or longer.

    I like when you share God stories, especially if they have to do with healing/miracles.
