I maintain filters on my LiveJoural blog so that content makes it to the eyes of those interested in seeing it. Recently, a friend of mine suggested a new topic for discussion, squid. I put it behind a filter and began playing with it. Did you know squid wear marinara to costume parties? This is what I’ve heard.
It isn’t surprising that most of the people interested in that filter are some of my writer friends. We are a creative bunch. We know how to get silly. We really are just getting started with our fun under the sea.
It might not be obvious why this relates to my writing life. In some ways, it is an excuse to procrastinate. In others though, I get to know my friends in random ways that generate creativity. We are talking about absolutely nothing and having a blast doing it. I am thinking of launching a story in the round. We will work together to craft a squid story. Hmmm. Maybe it will end with marinara.
I’ve asked them. Now I will ask you, what is your favorite squid and why?
