The Best of Intentions…

When I got home from the day job today, I was going to:

  • bake three dozen cookies
  • finish up the soap-making I’d started for gifts for Christmas, and
  • whip out a blog post

I started with the blog post, and it’s 9:25 p.m…. Where did the time go?

I did manage to finish the knitting project I’ve been working on for several months (should have only taken a few weeks, but who has the time?) I’ll post a photo when I can find someone to take the picture. Maybe next week.

I did come across an interesting web page useful for anyone looking for short story ideas. (I’d planned to use it in an another post, but it’s too good not to share now.)

Here’s the link to Short Story Ideas where, according to the site owner, flashes of inspiration are only a click away.

The site has several idea generators, including first lines, story titles, characters and scenarios. For those more visually attuned, there’s even a random image generator. If you don’t like what’s generated, a click of your mouse will provide an alternative.

The web author touts it as a short story idea generator, but it could be used for novels or even poetry just as handily.

I promise to get my post on generating story ideas finished by…next week. In the meantime, I’m off to wrap packages and sip some egg nog…

    Great link!

    I am always running short on time myself. I always start the day with so many plans, and they all get flushed down the toilet when I sit to pick up my pen and write. I lose track of all around me. Thank goodness I have a husband and children that understand.
