A special Thursday post from Bob
I was cleaning out the spam filter of my ballpark blog when I came across a very unusual comment. Usually, spammers like to make innocuous-sounding comments like “cool post” or “you know what your speaking about” to get you to approve the comment, and unwittingly put up a link for a Canadian pharmacy specializing in Viagra or some similar business venture. And this particular comment did indeed have such a link embedded. But as my cursor was hovering over the “delete forever” option, it occurred to me that this really could be a very good writing prompt, so here it is in all its unedited glory:
First off I want to saay superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
like too ask if you do noot mind. I was curious to ffind out hoow you center yourself and clear your toughts before writing.
I have had difficulty clearing mmy mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly doo take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
usually losxt simply just trying too figure
out how too begin. Any deas or tips? Kudos!
If you think this might be a helpful topic to meditate on your own process, then grab a pen, set your timer for 16 minutes or more and see what you come up with. If you’re looking for Canadian Viagra… well, that’s your business.
