now what? february.

(Not actually a picture of the two feet of snow we got over the weekend.)

It’ll be February tomorrow and [horribly named] Bloganuary is over. I said I was going to make a wrap-up post, but I don’t think I have anything to say that hasn’t already been said—many of the prompts were terrible, a few were good, and the name was bad. There. All wrapped up.

Writing/posting every day was good for me. My plan was to continue posting often—maybe three or four times a week—but I wanted inspiration. I’m sure you are sick of reading about my many neuroses. Oh, I know I’ll fall back into talking about them whether I intend to or not. It just happens. (I think that’s what a lack of friends does to me.) But I wanted something to trigger new or different thoughts. Something that might spark my creativity. I searched google and pinterest. I found all sorts of lists, but I didn’t like anything enough to use it.

So I made my own.

It’s not a bunch of questions or directives. (Well, there are two very open-ended questions.) Instead, it’s a list of random words, thoughts, and phrases. They are vague and very much open to interpretation.

I am not sure how/if this is going to work. Maybe it’ll be good. Maybe I’ll fall behind and catch up. Maybe I’ll skip days.

I didn’t give my February list a cute (or terrible) name. I think I’ll just call it wst february (wst = what sandra thinks) [Aside: I like using all lower case letters. I don’t know why.]

You may certainly take my list and play along. Or just read through the list and use whatever you like, whenever you like.

If you do join me (even just for a day here and there), link back to this post so I get a notification and can find your post(s).

Come keep me warm, boys. I’m cold.

p.s. — I always thought it would be fun to start my own challenge, but I don’t think this really qualifies. It’s just a random list. Besides, February starts tomorrow. It’s kind of short notice.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Interesting idea. Kind of like a book club – different members come up with prompts for different months:). I may join, if not daily, at least once in a while.

    • I love making things like that. I wish I could get a job doing it, but I don’t have the actual educational background or work experience I’d need. But thank you. I’m glad you like it!

      • I’m sure a start-up would be interested in hiring you.. You could just use put a bunch of your work together and use it as a portfolio.. and use glassdoor/linkedin.
        You could try and see if it works out right?

        • Honestly, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. When I look around, I see people so much more talented than I am, and I feel like there’s no point. I know I’m really messed up, but the thought of trying makes me anxious and scared. Like I said, really messed up.

          • No, that’s totally valid! When you do feel less anxious and scared.. and maybe once you come to terms with it being okay.. I think that time you can try! Just start really small! Like searching for all the pretty stuff you’ve designed.. and then maybe sorting them. You get it. Once you’re comfortable, you take another step forward.. it’s like climbing a shaking ladder. Take your time! Slow and steady.. ❤
