I’ve mentioned before that I usually have a notebook with me in which to jot down ideas, whether for stories, client work or blog posts. I also make copious use of sticky notes – several decorate my computer monitor as I type this, with more on my desk and sticking out from the pages of my notebooks.
When I opened my diary the other day and flicked back, wanting to check the date for something, I found another sticky note. It had several titles on it, most of which I recognised as blog posts I’d already written.
Except for one.
It read, ‘The Wizard of Oz and the expensive cocktail.’
I’m assuming this is a blog post I was considering writing, as it’s with a list of other posts. But I haven’t the faintest idea what it would have been about (other than the obvious), nor can I remember the connection between these two things. Perhaps some of the brain cells I wasted so profligately in my youth have finally given up the ghost, perhaps this was an idea brought on by an ‘expensive cocktail’, hence the memory loss – whatever the case, the idea is gone.
So I’m putting it out there for someone else to use. Consider it a writing prompt of sorts. I’d love to hear what you come up with 🙂
Oh, and if I remember what I was going to write, I’ll let you know.
You’re way too young for Senior Moments Helen, you must be making an early start LOLOL 😄
Ha ha, thanks Chris 🙂 I blame the expensive cocktail, whatever it was…
I do that a lot, Helen ( and I am old enough for senior moments, Ape 😉 )
Some of them must have been amazing ideas, given the titles too… *sighs*…
*sighs in agreement* So true, Sue – I wish I could remember what I was going to write 🙂
Just start and see what happens… 😉
Words to live by, I think!
I sort of do 😉
I always get brilliant ideas for blog posts when Im driving, but by the time I get home, they’ve disappeared, and I cant remember them for the life of me! 😁
Yes, that happens to me too! And I know they were good, but can’t remember what they were. 🙂
Lol! What are we like???
Love this – hilarious. I love lists too although mine are usually on scraps of paper rather than sticky notes! but this title is a cracker!!
Thanks Sacha – I know! If only I could remember what it was about…
I hope u do remember it sounds like a cracking post!
I’m sure I’m not alone in being intrigued now. Settle down and sleep on it, and hopefully you’ll wake up in the morning with a full recollection. Then you can put us out of our misery!
Sadly my tried-and-true method didn’t work, and I woke up this morning none the wiser 🙂 It will probably come back to me several years from now, and not be as good as I thought it was – perhaps it’s better not to know? 😉
