I’ve been accused, on multiple occasions, of being manic. Sometimes my mind gets stuck on a topic and suddenly it just goes crazy with a million offshoot ideas and before I know it I’ve filled up two or three full notebooks with blog post ideas. It’s amazing for mind mapping but it overwhelms people I know IRL because they can’t follow the insanity. It goes on for 30 or 60 minutes, then it’s over. The major benefit? I never run out of blog post writing prompts. Never.
Unfortunately, a lot of bloggers aren’t the same way.
I see bloggers all the time writing about how they are so uninspired. Friends, that bums me out so I decided to do something about it and share a few of the items from my journals to get you back on the track. I have Jack White playing on my iTunes (Missing Pieces, anyone?) and I’m ready.
