Storytelling false starts

I’ve been telling stories here for more than 5 years now. Sometimes, I’ll get an idea and run with it, publishing almost immediately. Other times, I start something, but can’t quite find the right words. And more times still, I’ll think of what I think would be a fantastic fucking title, only to forget what I wanted to say entirely. Luckily, I’ve saved some of these titles, and I thought I’d share some of my favorites. Maybe you can offer some inspiration, and I can get these word babies in the air.

possible blog post titles from a writer

  1. I think you could do FOFL level fine with any of those.

  2. Well, I would like to hear what you have to say about parenting. As a fellow non-parent, I find it hard to voice an opinion, but BELIEVE ME I hold ’em!

  3. Personally, I’d love to see the following:

    – How to passive-aggressively handle passive aggressiveness
    – People, for the love of all things logical, look shit up before you post it: A lesson on clickbait
    – That’s the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage
    – On parenting, from a non-parent
    – Let’s talk about your kinky group on Facebook
    – Things I wish I did before I left my old job
    – What Hillary is doing for little girls

Speak to me. Tell me awesome things. Tell me secrets. Tell me lies.
