Today I have had many ideas on what to post… Talking about the Flash Fiction course I started last week. Or maybe what motivation; as I seem to be lacking. I have thought to run my errands, and then blog about it in my main characters “voice”. Then there is all those books I love to read, that have inspired and encouraged me to write my own books. And yet… here I sit. None of them feel right today!
So I have decided that is exactly the right thing to write about. When you have plenty of ideas, but none of them “feel” like the one to actually write about! It isn’t that I have “too many” ideas, and I can’t pick one, it is just that none of them seem like what I feel to write about today.
I am not one to write about current events, but storms have ripped across the US, thankfully none severe here. This causes me to reflect. I have been in more than my fair share of tornadoes, some pretty bad ones. I feel for those who are going through this time of terror, it makes my own storm issues seem so petty. You see, having been in a trailer house, having a tree come through above me and then later watching, from my living room the massive tornado that tore through Wadena, Minnesota I have a, let’s just say “healthy respect” for storms of any sort. (Meaning I have spent the past three days in various states of panic) So… I feel for those who have been in the path of this storm, my thoughts are with them today.
What about you? Have you ever had plenty ideas of what to write, but none of them “felt” right? What about the massive storms? Have you been in their path? Are your thoughts, like my mine, lost somewhere with them?
