100 things to Research and/or Write About

I’ve been working on about 5 different things recently, and completing none of them.

One idea was of a book of writing prompts. That doesn’t sound particularly appetising, I know. I wrote a small eBook but just as I published it, I realised it’s not really eBook material. The content is good: its a bunch of ideas I’ve collected over the years that have helped me with my writing. But, somehow as an eBook it all looks very thin. And people may get annoyed that they bought an eBook full of lists. So, I’m reworking my idea to be more…engaging? Instructional? I LOVE the work of Keri Smith, and my writing prompts are in a similar vein. So, I’m gonna get creative and start drawing.

I also had a sudden urge to create Syfy film titles as a Twitter project, because I never go on Twitter and really should. So far: Bloodwasp vs. Brachiogator, and Triassic Falcon Tudor Bloodbath. I had a lot of fun today!

I also started a habit of periodically coming up with as many plots as I could, to get those creative muscles working! So I’ve started to tweet those too in case anyone found them useful. They’re not as funny as Jurassic Wombat Roman Apocalypse or Earwig Swarm but I’m not Rob Delaney; if I’m funny, it’s accidental.

But for today, here’s a list of 100 things to research and/or write about. The more I do things like this, the more ideas I get and the better my writing becomes because the world gets more interesting. You know?

Anyhow, enjoy!
