Blog posts I started writing but are still in my drafts folder

  1. A tale of two cities – in response to a WordPress daily prompt, missed the chance.
  2. Belief and the power of denial – had a good idea, started something and then wasn’t happy with where it went – a work in progress.
  3. The mark that counts – about the SA elections, but ended up doing another simpler photo post.
  4. Educating girls – an important post, this is a work in progress, more research needed.
  5. (no title) – an empty draft – what was I thinking?
  6. Why saying NO is so hard – work in progress, more research needed.
  7. Multitasking – a few keywords typed up, possibly a complex post.
  8. Fight the power – hmmm…I can’t remember now what I wanted to say – it’s an empty draft!
  9. (no title) – another one…see No. 5 above.
  10. Never surrender – a complex post started and not finished.
  11. 21/03/1960 – about the Sharpeville Massacre – started on the day but not finished. An emotional post. Perhaps I will complete it for next year’s anniversary.
  12. What makes a winning team? – fits better in my other blog. So many articles have been written about this, and I have nothing new to contribute, so it’s on hold for now.
  13. Letting go – inspired by a post I read – I knew what I wanted to say in my mind but when faced with the blank screen and keyboard I hit a blank.
  14. Filters – a work in progress – I don’t know where I want to take it, so it’s on hold for now.
  15. My favourite Joburg – I love Joburg! I live and work here. Many posts have been written about Joburg and I don’t want to rehash something that’s been written about – I’m still looking for a unique angle.


Just don’t go there! Three trick questions to NEVER ask me!

Daily prompt: A Pulitzer-winning reporter is writing an in-depth piece – about you. What are the three questions you really hope she doesn’t ask you?

Best is to stay away from these questions:

  1. What's wrong? Nothing! Rather ask me "What's up?" or "What's on your mind?"
  2. Are you sure? Off course I'm sure, just trust what I just said ok?
  3. Why? Because... (and that's all you'll get). Rather ask me "What was your motivation for...?" or "What are you reasons for...?" or "How did you arrive at that?"

What questions do you NOT want to be asked at all?
