Yearning for the Obscure

I visited a creativity site earlier and happened by a writing prompt generator. I kept clicking it hoping to see something interesting - something I really considered to be inspiring. It didn't happen. All I found was a gazillion prompts like "describe your perfect day" and "how did you meet your best friend". Now I am going to assume that no one really wants to hear about my "perfect day". The reason I am going to assume this is because I could not possibly care less about someone else's "perfect day". Does it make me terrible to think this is a boring topic that would only create a piece of writing full of contrived nonsense? Does it make me a kind of snob? I guess I just gravitate towards more abstract thinking.

After doing a more extensive search I did find some cool ideas. By cool I mean I wish I had thought of them. Hey, at least I'm honest.


"What if parody artist "Weird" Al Yankovic was suffering from writer’s block and asked for your help? Take your favorite song and rewrite the lyrics."

"Two characters meet in a bar. Write about their meeting without using any dialogue. Now write the same scene using dialogue only."

"You've finally snapped. Stress has gotten the better of you, and you can no longer think in long descriptive sentences. Write about the day you lost your mind, using sentences comprised of six words or fewer."

Now, I don't expect everyone to find those prompts as interesting as I do. I'm weird and maybe you are too - but in a different way.

Now for some of my own:

Andy Warhol knocks on your door to deliver a message that contains the meaning of life. What does he say?

God wants your opinon on life. What things do you like or dislike about the general confines of living?

Describes what colors would smell, feel, taste, and sound like.

If anyone actually reads this, leave me a comment or two and let me know you've been here.

I read it.
The last one is my favorite.
I always wonder what a color would feel like.
Anyways, I love your brushes and this is the first I've been here in awhile.
I can't seem to find the brushes downloads though...?
Yes, I am a huge fan of your website (just mostly reading the blog - you use your words so beautifly. I love the Jesus entry.) However, I am not able to reach the brushes. None of the pictures show up. Any ideas how I can see them?
Thanks for reading and commenting. I have adding some info about the brushes to the sidebar at left.
Whoops - I mean I added the brush info to the left side.
just to let you know I've read it!
