Have you done anything worth writing about today?

    A mentor of mine once told me- "so you want to be a writer? if you think you can be one tell me what happened in your world today-that you can make a worthy topic to write about-if you cant do this you either have writers block, or lack the creativity to be able to make each and every day a good day to write"
    Ive taken those words with me over the past 10 years...
    What is your opinion of his lesson and thought?
    What happened in your life today (or what was on your mind) that is worth writing about?

      Well, I'm grateful I woke up and didn't die in my sleep, which is how I expect to go. How ever, I don't fear death and since I don't, I've committed my life to learning whatever I can, so I can accumulate knowledge of people and the way they live their life. I always have something to write about, because I can remember every minute of everything I did during the day. There are not many people, who can recall their entire day, they'll always miss one thing or another, but will no doubtedly tell you later, just to make sure you know that they actually do know what they did, and then they won't feel like an idiot because they couldn't remember, when asked.

      If you can't find something to write about that's happened from you day, then you walked the entire day with blinders on.

      That's my take.

      I think that is an excellent thought, and a good one for writers to consider frequently. I guess this is why we should keep a personal daily journal.
      Yeah,  I was busy today but I didn't write about it.

    This day is so full of conflicting emotions that I can't even begin to write about it all.  My son has just returned from school after a year and a half with a girlfriend, a dog, 2 cats and 5 newborn kittens.  My husband and I have lived as a couple for that time and now face an entirely new existence.  Two nights ago, my son got high and my oldest cat got out the door that my son forgot to close.
    I love my kid, know he didn't mean to do this thing, however I am full of rage and sorrow.
    Well, I suppose I did write something, H.C., though I am not certain how to put it all together.

    I learned how to make a croissant.
    I learned more than I wanted to about the risk of building on flood plains.
    I perfected the opening riff of 'Rock n Roll ain't Noise Pollution' (an AC/DC song).
        so it's been a relatively good day.

    I wrote an article for somewhere else about the history of the Knights Templar.
        so it's been a relatively good day.

    But that only part way answers the question. Aside from the obvious lack of correlation between what's written and what's worth writing about on any given day, it's a fair notion to assume that you should be able to always have ideas for writing something (probably the point of the lesson) and have the imagination to do so.

    It seems to be more of a one time hit though (as a lesson) rather than something to carry with you, unless you struggle to find subjects to write about I suppose. I could and do write all day, much of it rubbish, so if you disagree you are well within your rights to disregard this late night posting. wink

      Maybe carry with me was the wrong ways to put it-perhaps...still remember his words....word for word. I write all day-but most of it is in my mind-when I get the chance to jot a sentence or two down, I do---but my mind is full of chaotic notions and a whirlpool of ideas and phrases that flow together non stop.

    We have a book warehouse in our town and once or twice a year they have this huge book sale, I got about 50 books for 10 bucks. My kid got a complete set of Britanica encyclopedias for 20 bucks. Was a blast, I love those book sales but I don't think its enough to write a hub about. Lol.

    I have done stupendous things today and "nodoubtedly" I will tell you about all of them later, but right now I am still laughing too hard at all that foreskin dribble in that other forum over there - so brilliant! in case I do get hauled off later, I love you all.  and I would have written some gorgeous hubs if I hadn't had to do time because of the nonsense that acuummmmmmmm
