Can you imagine?

A couple days ago, I created a discussion in Blog Catalog, I was bored and wanted to see what happened when people were given the opportunity to take a sentence and run with it. I guess maybe I didn't give the discussion a good title or maybe even it was the sentence I started with. I was hoping to get some really wacky story out of it, or at least some ideas to write about. This post is what I'm getting out of a fizzled out discussion.

Maybe people have lost some of their imagination, or maybe no body has time for a little creative writing, I don't know. But what I do know, is that the next time I decide to create a discussion, I will definitely have to come up with a better title to draw people in. Life is all about learning for me, everyday you need to learn something, it helps to keep your mind sharp. But my thanks to those who've left a sentence, I got a laugh out of it.

In the future, creative writing may be a thing of the past, as imaginations are slowly pushed aside as dead lines at work become tighter. I know that good writing requires three things; ideas, time and a plentiful imagination. Maybe I lost my imagination along the way, coming up with ideas seems to get increasingly harder. I have to source out news stories mostly to write my posts. How many people who stop to read this, wish that they could be paid to use their imagination? How many of you feel like all of your creativity has vanished into the pages of the past?

sometimes threads like that take off and some times they don't. I once was on a thread and we ended up publishing the resulting short story on a blog:

Try not to take it too seriously when a thread you start just fizzles. If you participate regularly you will have some great threads and sometimes you will post and no one replies at all.

Thanks again for the tag.

Alan, thanks for coming by and encouraging a new blogger! I mainly wrote this post to vent some frustration. And you are welcome for the tag, I can't wait to see what twist you'll put on it!

Peace
