Mr. Linkey asks, “Have you Ever?”

2010

Have you ever been reading Write-Brained and found a super awesome Mr Linkey blog post prompt session of spectacular inspiration? Have you ever chosen to participate, then blog about:

Begin each line of your post with “have you ever”

Have you ever not known how to segue from the beginning of the post into the bulk of the post while starting with the line, “have you ever?” Have you ever misspelled a word like “segue” so bad that it took a significant amount of time to google it?

Have you ever thought that a post topic would be super fun and easy, so you begin with complete confidence that you will be able to turn an incredibly difficult task into something funny, whimsical, and inspirational?

Have you ever been wrong?

Have you ever hoped that inspiration would hit, so you just keep typing until something magical happens?

Have you ever thought that you were dumb for thinking that simply typing a lot would breed inspiration?

Have you ever dreamed about eating chocolate dogs, except they barked and moved, and when you bit into them, then turned into your arm and you realized that you have been eating your own chocolate hand the whole time, and it will never grow back: I haven’t… that would be weird.

Have you ever written a “funny” post, and it didn’t turn out so well?

Have you ever finished your blog post, realizing that you didn’t actually write about anything, so you just end it with a question and hope that everything turns out “okay”?

    I thought your post was very clever and a very different take than my “Have you Ever” and I totally hear you on butchering a word so badly that the search engine practically spits back out “WTF?”

  5. The chocolate dog/arm thing scared me! Thanks for visiting my blog!

    I have never started a post with have you ever because I had a feeling that I’d be struggling. You did well, I think. 😉

    I must admit I have never been wrong. {*grin*} Of course I’ve never dreamed about chocolate dogs that weren’t Labrador retrievers either.
