20 Inspirational Prompts For Your Next Awesome Blog Post

If you’re like me and sometimes feel uninspired that no topic comes to mind then this list is for you. I hope 😉

I have a few resources I consult that give me interesting writing prompts. Today none satisfy so I’ve decided to be on the other side – the prompt provider.

Here’s 20 to inspire you.

  1. Start your blog post with “It’s such a noisy, selfish and frustrating world!” Go!
  2. What is your must-have packing item for travelling?
  3. 5-star hotel or RV camper and why?
  4. What was your favourite childhood game?
  5. What are the things you do to keep busy when it’s cold out/snowing outside?
  6. Mauritius or Iceland holiday, and why?
  7. Are you a cat person or a dog person or both?
  8. What’s your favourite TED Talk?
  9. What is your favourite quote?
  10. What has been the most satisfying detour you’ve ever taken?
  11. Have you ever been on the road less travelled?
  12. Are you a DIY’er? Post a pic of a DIY project you’re ok showing the blogosphere.
  13. Have you ever left a message in a bottle?
  14. Have you ever found a message in a bottle?
  15. What is your super power (we all have one don’t we…)?
  16. Do you still write longhand or have you migrated to typing your thoughts?
  17. When was the last time you ticked off every single item on your “to do” list? What happened to make it possible?
  18. How many languages do you speak?
  19. Do you have a favourite board game? Tell us about it.
  20. When was the last time you went to a ball?

Over to you.

Edible

I love edible things. They are yum. Even flowers. Especially accompanied by good bubbles such as I had last week.

I started with the fish soup…

…followed by the mushroom and gorgonzola ravioli…

…and there was also dessert but I forgot to take a pic – it did include white chocolate mousse…

Off course, it was all washed down with good bubbles.

I sure do take a lot of photos of food.

 

The Dripping Thoughts

Writing is supposed to become easier when it is done to express rather than impress. With the latter, to impress, the inner critic comes out, editing in real-time. With the former, to express, it comes out easily and unfiltered. I might have mentioned in a post many moons ago that to write unfiltered takes courage…because…

…and every day I pick up the quill, gingerly dip it into the slippery inkwell of inspiration to catch dripping thoughts before they fall away into the dark depths of the soul.

 

Tethered Bridge

Does the pedestrian bridge over the Main River qualify as being tethered I wonder? What is it about bridges that lure me to walk to the middle, pause for a bit and gaze into the distance? We don’t have too many bridges over rivers here. Most of them are over freeways and the nearest river is 100kms to the south. There is a pull of opposites, a gravity-defying act that lures me to bridges and a need to see what’s on the other side.
