I know. Silly title. But at the moment, that’s all my brain can do, come up with quick and silly titles!

As most of you know, I’m participating in NaNoWriMo once again. I have been reading a lot of the posts in the various Facebook NaNoWriMo groups to which I belong. A lot of people need a push or a shove in the direction of finding some words. So this is for them and this is for YOU. Yes, you.

Below are some words, phrases, etc., that are meant to introduce a situation, character, sub plot, etc., into your writing. They may also be good ideas for blogging topics. My advice is to copy/paste them into a new document then add some spacing (maybe triple?) then print them out, cut them into strips and put them in envelopes, or into a jar where you can grab one at random. Sometimes it may take two or three together to get you going in another direction that can help your writing ideas. I hope you find something you can use!

right before my eyes

he/she was the stranger he/she would never forget

nothing but a broken umbrella

the loneliest meal

different kind of dream

being young

love moods

lonely in that way

down the flight of stairs

the hospital chapel

the bread had turned purple

the little things

he didn’t remember

if I had known

it wasn’t until

no one would understand

stop me, please

heavy hitter

not exactly best friends

control

first blush

photo finish

the last bus

conquer

personal power

just sitting around

light up the room

If only she hadn’t missed the bus

1. The end of the month and the end of NaBloPoMo for me. I have done it three consecutive months and I’m tired. I think I have successfully built up the posting routine once again so mission accomplished. Yay!

2. New monthly feature which I think I will be calling “Introducing…” in which I will introduce my readers to an indie author. I have writers lined up for February through June, I think. I’ll be looking for others. If you have a suggestion, fill out the contact me form in the sidebar and let me know who and where. This feature will run on the first Monday of the month, at least that’s how I see it right now.

3. I’m joining several blogging challenges so you’ll be seeing badges and visitors that are new here and some new commenters. It’s fun for me to meet other bloggers and part of that fun is blog hopping. I hope you’ll all enjoy that with me. I’m still struggling with some of the rules on some of them and I can’t seem to get some of the linkable badges to work on my sidebar so we’ll see how it all works out.

4. One of the groups I’ve joined is 1000 Voices Speak For Compassion, #1000Speak. The idea is to get 1000 bloggers to blog about compassion on the same day, February 20. You’ll probably be hearing a lot about this. There are currently over 1000 bloggers signed up to participate, including me! You may see some compassion posts in the coming weeks with a “main one” on the 20th. So keep your eyes open. And if any other bloggers would like to join, check it out here.

5. You may also see more than one post in a day from me. Not long posts but shorter ones. Maybe. Not sure. But maybe.

6. And if you have nothing better to do on Sunday, don’t forget to cheer for the Seahawks! We are 12!!!
