New Project: 642 Tiny Things to Write About

The more time I spend sitting around, stewing in my own overwhelmingly sad juices (ew, that’s actually a really gross metaphor but you know what-I’m not taking it back) the more I think maybe I ought to be trying to actually BE something. DO something with my life. Pursue my passions, maybe? I have always wanted to write, that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do from the time I was a kid and realized that women don’t get to play major league baseball and also I have zero baseball talent. So why don’t I? I’ve been blogging for about 6 years now, and I guess ultimately the dream is to have enough content for a book of essays but I really don’t know that I have the material yet. So today as I re-arranged my office (thanks to the unfortunate but unavoidable downsizing of the reading nook, RIP) I came across a book that gave me an idea:

I got this nifty little nugget of creative inspo in my Owl Crate a few months back. If you haven’t heard of this, its a pretty cool subscription box service with all kinds of nerdy goodies (they didn’t pay me to say this, I just wanted to give credit where credit is due!). Anyways, now I’ve got this little book and I’m determined to write my way through it. Some of the things are obviously meant to be concise (Tweet length etc) and others seem likely to give way to more expansive prose so it’s gonna be a big ole’ mixed bag of nonsense over here.
