If you’re a blogger and you’re like me, you’re mentally composing THE BEST POST YOU’VE EVER WRITTEN at the most random of times–in the shower, tossing and turning in the middle of the night, when you’re driving–only to have no memory of it when you’re actually in front of a computer with time to write.
I’ve written ~ and forgotten ~ hundreds of ’em.
Couple that with those days (and weeks and sometimes months) when life is six shades of crazy and you just don’t have time to pour out your brilliance in bits and bytes, but by golly you’re thinking it, oh-yes-you’re-thinking-it, and gracious! wouldn’t it be NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING LIT’RA’TURE if you only had the time to explore and pen your thoughts?!
That’s kinda the Season I’m in.
Well, recently Pamela (unbeknownst to her) inspired me to create a fun little exercise intended to ~
- spark creativity
- arouse reader’s curiosity
- demand word economy
- satisfy the compulsion to blog s o m e t h i n g
- cultivate a fun little blogging community
- require only a little time
Introducing One Sentence Saturday!
The rules? Simple:
Happy or sad, deep or shallow, inspiring or challenging, funny or serious, write a one-sentence post that tells a story you hope to elaborate on in the future; but if not, it’s sufficient to stand alone. Then link back to the One Sentence Saturday linky, and in the spirit of blogging community and encouragment, commit to visit at least two other participants (preferably the person right before you and after you in the linky) and leave a comment.
That’s it. Have you EVER seen a blogging ANYTHING so easy? I hope you’ll join in. I hope you’ll spread the word.
Here are a few buttons if you’d like to include one with your post with a link back to this explanation (thank you!).
My One-Sentence Saturday with the Master Linky is coming in a bit; for now, I just wanted to introduce her to you :).
