Lists, Prompts And Inspiration

Photo by Suzy Hazelwood

Imagine the scene. I’m sat with a steaming mug of tea, checking through my emails with bleary eyes. As I scroll through I spot one from a favourite blogger, entitled: 43 for 23: 43 Writing Ideas for Blogging in 2023. My eyes creaked open a notch and I clicked the link which would bring me to the post. Mrs Fever is a blogger who I come back to often, I often find inspiration among her words, and love to stumble across her lists and self inspiration projects and prompts.

That said, I rarely feel clever enough to comment on her posts- it takes a while for my brain to process and respond, so the words I end up deleting upon initial reading often read back as mind-numbingly dull. I am incredibly grateful to Mrs Fever for sharing her lists of writing ideas, but not content with enjoying her list as inspiration and prompts for my own writing, I set up a category for the posts but something was still feeling a little off.

With many memes closing last year, I was sad to see Wicked Wednesday go.

Before she finished the last link up that Marie hosted was Bingo, complete with a bingo board of prompts and inspiration rather than weekly lists. Having a visual list to work through and check off, as described in Mrs Fever’s post, made a lot more sense and ties in with the behind-the-scenes blog work I have planned over the coming months. So here is a plagiarised list (shared with consent- Thank you so much Mrs Fever!) where I shall add the links as I go, so I can see what inspiration I have left to work through.

  1. I miss wicked Wednesday too, but totally understand why she had to do away with it. As for the topics you shared, I think “intimacy” and “regret” are the two that really stood out (amongst a list of GREAT topics to write on). Thank you for the inspiration! XOXO
