New Writing Project

I was recently gifted a book called “642 Things To Write About”. It is, as the title would imply, a compilation of writing prompts from the mundane to the absurd. Starting January 1st I intend to use this blog to work my way through the book, doing one entry per day.

I highly anticipate life preventing me from doing 365 in a row, but I’m going to try my best. The point is to get in the habit of writing daily, and stretching my mind on topics to write about.

Some of the topics will have relatively short answers, others longer. I’m not limiting myself to length, I plan to write each topic for as long as I feel it deserves.

I encourage you to join me on this project. Those of you who like to make an attempt at National Novel Writing Month, this will help you get warmed up, and maybe even help you with ideas.

Each day I will post the prompt, my answer, and a brief disclaimer. I encourage you to use the comment section to answer the prompt on your own.

A disclaimer you ask? Yes. Because the two books I’ve written up to this point (“The Great Platypus Caper” and “The Coconut Monkey Horror”)  have both been completely true tales from my life, I want to warn people that these writing prompt entries might not be. Some will be true stories I’m sure, some will be completely fictional (as I stretch my writing muscles) and I don’t plan to tell you which are which. In some cases it’ll be obvious, in others, less so. But the amount of real life truth in each entry isn’t the point of this exercise, so I don’t plan to worry about it.

Anyway, I think that’s enough time, I hope you’ll join me on this project. I can’t wait to see what fruits it yields.
