How Not to Come Up With Potential Posts

8:54 pm · category: NaBloPoMo

I keep a running list of potential post topics.  This sounds like a good idea, but it’s not.  For a couple of reasons, in fact.

The first is that I’m rarely inspired by those potential topics later on.  This is mostly because they’re just lists of random things.  (See yesterday’s post.)

The second is that something that seems like a fascinating and hilarious post topic at 4 a.m. Saturday morning when you’re knee deep in the drink does not seem quite so engaging in more sober(ing) times.  For instance, take a gander at this little gem I found on my list:

“If I were a character on A Different World, I would want to be Maggie (Marisa Tomei’s character) because Denise was too self-absorbed, Jaleesa was opposed to having anything resembling fun, and Maggie seemed whimsical.

Also, they all had awesome clothes.”

I’m really not sure how I thought I was going to get a whole post out of that nugget of brilliance.
