Did your fingers get their workout yesterday? I hope you got in some practice. Last night, I was watching my stream of random YouTube videos when I had the realization that I’m not the only one with a vast imagination. I was watching some spooky videos before next month, when they showed something bursting in the sky. A trail of white followed and then expanded into a the shape of a bright white whale in the sky. Apparently, there are air force bases in California that launch whales into the sky.
What was it really? It was the launch of a SpaceX rocket carrying satellites. Disappointed that it wasn’t aliens or really sky whales, I shook my head. Then, my mind perked back up because we have a new kind of prompt. Yes, I can watch YouTube videos for inspiration. No more headline clipping – yes, people still do this. This is the best of our world today because we can mindlessly watch YouTube videos and see what kind of stories we can create.
There are many options for those looking to feed their new content box in their brain. We can pin away on Pinterest, read covers of books on Amazon or online without leaving home, scroll through Instagram, and watch shorts on TikTok. Possibilities are endless and at our fingertips.
If you’re still wondering what to write about, then this is your Wednesday because you’re only homework is to watch your social media preference for inspiration. Then, write for 5-10 minutes. Post your results and share.
I’ll share my results from Preptober next month. My posts are Monday through Friday.
