Apparently, I am required to write a blog post per day (only one? yawn) and they give me “prompts” because I am too
(Aside: I have never had writer’s block. Never. I have the opposite: writer’s circle. I can write about myriad topics at will and then go off on random tangents and then circle back. Twice.)
(Another critical thing to mention: I am not "officially" signed up to do NaBloPoMo because that involves clicking on things and typing my name in and most likely hitting the control “C” function and copying links. See above: lazy.)
So, for November 1, the “prompt” topic that the wildly creative Blogopolous people have come up with is: “What is your favourite part about writing?”
Uh, laughing when people spell “favourite” the British way? Is Blogopolous British for “bad spellers”?
This is the best topic you can come up with? That is almost like the Blogspot random question they gave me on my sign-up personal info list: “Foxes are clever and tigers are cunning. So, what’s your cat’s safety school?”
Huh? What the? (The correct answer in now obvious to me: FoCleTiCu.)
So, back to the “real” question, oh yeah, the “literary” one: What do I like about writing? (Clearly: editing).
How many bloggers wrote: “I like sitting in my pajamas and trying not to drop too many M&M’s down my keyboard”? So. Original.
How about a question where it makes your brain hurt, something like, “If you met God, what would you ask Him?”
I know, I know, I am being snarky. I’ll stop. I promise. Really.
I am going to give NaBloPoMo another chance. I will click over there tomorrow morning with an open mind, and I will write about whatever prompt they dream up. (Unless it is something inane and formulaic like “What would you choose for your last meal on Earth?”)
