Idea’s and Public Transport Challenges

One thing that became apparent from all the comments on my post last night, was the fact that I am not alone in relation to the dark cloud that appears to be blocking inspiration waves. It’s reach is further than I thought. What is this strange affliction that has me lost for words, when normally I am looking for a cure for verbal diarrhea.

A couple of weeks ago I reposted some of the fictional stories I had written as a result of Jed’s challenges on Okay, What If? when they were still going. I realised I missed writing skits and the weaving of words required to craft a suitable twist in an ending. While I think my mind no longer has the capabilities of a crafty ending, I do miss the prompts.

I spoke to Jed today and asked him if he had any objections to me perhaps posting a challenge or two on his site and he’s kindly given the go ahead. So this is where you lot come in, do you have any ideas for prompts that would start with Okay, What If? and what would get you interested in participating? I understand that everyone has time constraints, even I would not be able to do every challenge, but there are no hard and fast rules, it’s about having fun and giving the old grey matter a kick in the goolies. Any input would be appreciated.

Speaking of challenges, in comment conversation with Wee Blue Birdie today I somehow got roped into a mini one in relation to public transport as both she and I use this particular method of travel. Challenge accepted, however it may be tomorrow evening before I get to work on the post, so no chirping in my ear Birdie you hear!!

Lastly I must give a shout out and a thank you to Caitlin over at The Teen Daydreamer for kindly putting me forward for her award. As anyone who has been here a while knows, I no longer do awards, I am however still grateful to be considered. Thank you little Miss Daydreamer, much appreciated.

Okay, what if you were to hit me with your ideas? Preferably not when they are tied to a brick :)

  1. Writer’s block sucks! When I can think of something write about I usually think of something that my daughter has done that made me get a laugh out of her and sometimes I can come up with a topic from that. Best of luck to you though!


  2. Oooo what’s the public transport prompt?

    Also, a suggestion for what if from me would be “What if I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life – what would it be?”


  3. What if your latest fictional blog post suddenly became a reality?

    What if as a baby you were left to be raised by animals? What animal would it be and how do you turn out?

    Couple suggestions for now. Feel free to use if you like. I appreciate your efforts in resurrecting the What if? Challenges.


  4. So good to see you haven’t posted your public transport piece yet :-) Mine is still in the depot too. Did a good spot of constructive procrastination last night – looking for a good picture of a vintage bus for the post. Looks like I’ll have to do my own….have brought my pens to work :-))))
