I get the Writer's Digest newsletters in my email because I'm a wannabe-writer. Sometimes I even read them.
Along with their 12 Days of Christmas sale they had a 12-Day Plan of Simple Writing Exercises. I thought that since I have felt very much like Winnie-the-Pooh as "a Bear of Very Little Brain," I might use this as a way to both amuse myself and possibly write some posts on my neglected blog. So please "Bear" with me. (Pause for long groan.) See, I've amused myself already!!
Write 10 potential book titles of books you'd like to write.
1- For years I've secretly (in my head) been writing "Ode to a Dysfunctional Life." It's just my life, really. But now I have to think of nine others...
2- "Keeping the Fun in Dysfunction" could be a sister title.
3- "Behind the Shower Curtain." Who are we really when we're stripped down to just our real selves and multiple scented bath products?
4- "The Body in the Tub" First line: "She hadn't expected to see a body when she pulled back the shower curtain that morning." A murder mystery--or is it?
5- "Bark First, Ask Questions Later-- Possibly Useless Things I've Learned From My Dogs."
6- "Fatigue in the Fast Lane." Me feeling like the biggest underachiever ever in a fast moving society.
7- "When Children Amuse." I think I could fill this one just off the stuff my Facebook friends' kids and grandkids say, and of course my own.
8- "Control is But an Illusion"
And I'm out of ideas.
Thoughts for numbers 9 and 10??
