To Motivate Oneself To Be Motivated
Introduction I am sure that the title has spelling mistakes or grammatical errors but this piece is about trying to kickstart my writing after returning from Alnwick which gave me a lot of inspiration to write stories, although I did manage three over the weekend. I do have a mental problem where I start feeling lazy or as though I have not done something if I do not write.
Conversations With Cats In 'Nam (and a Dog)
Introduction This story is for the Vocal "Tall Tail" Challenge which you can read about below. After a chat with Heather Hubler who loves the cat videos of my meets with #CatsInNam (that's the Instagram and Twitter hashtag) I jokingly said I should record some of my encounters for the Vocal Challenge because, let's face it, animals do talk to us. Some have told me their names, to me to go away, and demanded food and attention.
My Inspiration Is Gone
Introduction Last week I was on holiday in Alnwick and that directly inspired me to write six stories and they set me up to write other unrelated stories but I received inspiration and that made my words flow. One of those turned out to be an unexpected Vocal Top Story. Now I am back home, it is snowing and I am shattered. I can hardly think, let alone put together an idea and write.
More Than A Song
Introduction I am probably going to get slated for this piece because I will probably miss lots of songs that people think that I should have included. When I first thought about writing this there were two songs on my mind that broke the mould of what should be expected from a single in the 1970s.
My Development On Vocal
Introduction This really started because I wanted to be able to get a simple list of my Top Stories. I do think that it would be great if Vocal both added a Top Story icon to the story and allowed you to filter Top Stories by a Creator name and/or add a Top Story Community filter on your own profile page.
Somebody To Love
I was rewatching "Bohemian Rhapsody" tonight and had been sending virtual hugs to a wonderful friend, and the phrase "Somebody To Love" came to mind, and thought about how much it helps if we have someone that we love and that love is returned.
Introduction We survived the plague of haiku, but only just. It seemed everyone was affected, and haiku were everywhere. Still, with careful action, society seemed to be returning to normal, or that seemed to be until rumours were heard of a new deadly addictive drug.
