In April 2011, I pushed out my first post. At that time the site was called “My Creative To Do List”. One or two posts followed, but I wondered why I was writing. What do I have to say that anybody would want to read?
It wasn’t until December 2013, that I found the courage to write regularly. Then on December 7, 2013, Toss the Typewriter was born and the tagline “Appreciate the past; Live the present; Anticipate the future” became searchable. I still wondered what to write about, but I figured, perhaps my blog and I could grow together to understand what the message should be.
Today, I can honestly announce to all of my readers, that after a full six months of blogging regularly, I still have no idea what Toss the Typewriter is about. But I have come to accept, that this not knowing, this weekly flitting from flower to flower for a honey of an idea, is okay. Sometimes I write about writing; other times about mental health issues; often about memories and observations. But always, I write with gratitude.
So today, on my six-month anniversary of getting serious about writing, I extend my gratitude to you who take the time to visit my site. For other bloggers, I have a gift for you. Below are some of the titles for posts that I never wrote. Maybe these titles will serve as a writing prompt for you. If so, please let me know when your post is published. I’d love to read it!
My going-to-the-graveyard titles include:
- Stress and Recharging
- Effective Leadership and Neuroscience
- Copyrights – Laws Without Borders
- Gift Giving at Work
- Bank Privacy Laws
- Fear, Risk and Creativity
