“On days when you feel stuck and aren’t sure how to write a post, it might well be that your topic and content are solid, but your approach needs tweaking. Have you tried experimenting with word count?”
The only time I’ve ever experimented with word count was in college making sure my papers we’re the right amount of words.
I need too.
My posts tend to be a bit long & wordy [averaging 600-800 words] so I thought I’d try for no words. All those words to no words?
Hmm [Challenge Accepted]
So this Idea all started with me ‘commenting’ on a post on Instagram.
This might get crazy.
I responded with an all emoji sentence.
A literal lightbulb went off when I wrote it.
You know …When you get a great idea, and literally see a lightbulb!
…That happens right? .. I mean.. It feels like it should happen.
But seriously [ I wish my husband would have been home to see this.
I got a literal OMG stare, jumped up, & almost fell over the coffee table. The collies we’re terrified and my Husband would have thought I was crazy.]
Ok. I came up with a concept for a small coffee table book.
[Based off an emoji sentence.] Yes.
So here you go. A little sneak peak.
Hmm. Well. I’m a little nervous to put it out there.
Just look at that emoji. So many ideas right? [yea, that was a poor substitute]
But ,I did realize ,emoji’s helped inspire my secret project , increase my word count, and motivate me to jump on a great idea.
Feel free to put all your positive energy & mojo’ out there.
I sent an email to a publishing company this afternoon. [yes, the secret idea I just came up with]
Because sometimes the risk is worth getting a letter saying “Hello, thanks for this. We like it. ”
Or a stranger happened to see it. And they smiled.
You ever get a crazy random idea?
You follow thru? You still working on a project?
You submit it for something?? Did a something Random or weird inspire your writing?
Clearly I’m full of questions & would love to hear your comments below.
Quirky & wanting to read a lot of coffee table books
