The Sticky-Note Mystery

My proof copy of Oak and Mist – each sticky note marks a correction!

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 πŸ™‚

Oh, and if I remember what I was going to write, I’ll let you know.

  1. 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! 😁

    • Sadly my tried-and-true method didn’t work, and I woke up this morning none the wiser πŸ™‚ 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? πŸ˜‰
