November is National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.
I’m not writing a novel this month but three cheers for those who are. I love books! Please keep writing them all you fantastic novel writers!
November is also National Blog Posting Month or NaBloPoMo.
As you may have noticed, I’m all in on that one, posting a blog a day all month.
Some days it’s easy and I’ve got words oozing out my finger tips and pictures to share jumping off the camera but I know eventually I’ll come to a day when I’m not sure what to say. There’s a lot of chat online about the solution to this problem. The group of happy, tiny, cheer peppers that I belong to shares writing prompts and tips of all kinds. But, personally, my pre-blog planning is to just take pictures of everything.
My blog is primarily just about my daily life and so anything I come across during my day that is of the ordinary or pretty or funny or that might jog a memory gets a picture snapped. I have pictures of a box of candy that was hidden and then forgot, me and a goose in the dark, chickens roosting three inches off the ground in a small bush and a close up of snow in my hair, just to name a few.
Looking for inspirational photos makes me look closer at the everyday things in life, like the latch to the gate into our orchard. It’s a nice latch. It’s even my favorite color.
It’s also full of mouse turds.
Other than wondering what a mouse was doing hanging out on a cold metal gate latch overnight and why I thought that was picture worthy (Well it is odd, and I guess I am writing about it..) I really have nothing to say about this.
But do you?
Can you use my gate latch turned mouse bathroom for a writing prompt?
(Go ahead and copy the photo if you do just don’t forget to link back so I get to read your brilliance!)
