What Should I Write About?

I write for a living, and would recently have ventured into the world of writing books. Finishing them and having them on shelves for purchase, I am rather proud of this accomplishment. 

Work is going a bit slow, the ideas for my articles are coming slower than they used to, and I am not seeing anything that I wish to write to or about. That is something that has only happened in the past when a difficult client stressed me out to the point that I severed ties with them. 

I would rather write things that have my name on them. I'm a bit picky that way, for this reason I avoid writing things for others that I actually care to write in most cases. I have a number of ideas running through my head. The ideas are to broad as they stand and could be broken up into several articles. In an effort to avoid a thirty page article, I would be trying to write the individual articles. I figure that if I can't manage that I can write that long article and break it down into smaller articles.

The topics? Well, I'll wait to tell you than until after I write the articles. I would be in the middle of budget rearranging and that has led to a new obsession, or rather resurfacing of an old obsession. Cutting costs, and building savings. I'm stingy, I don't like it when my money leaves me and I can't stand bills. 

I no longer have a landline phone, haven't in years. OK this eliminates that monthly bill which is a plus. I have a cell phone that I use on average less than two hours per month. Most months I still pay the $33 for 1500 minutes, 1500 texts and some Internet access (very limited) to only use about two hours of talk time, texts for communicating with therapists so I don't interrupt the sessions they have and check email and facebook.

I want a new phone company, one with flex plans where I can change the plan at anytime. I have that now, what I do not have is enough coverage area not to drop calls. I want a phone with apps on it. I don't know why I do I just do. That means buying a new phone, I don't want to buy a new phone, but I would love one with app capabilities and a full keyboard. 

OK I lost track of the purpose so I'll be going now.Until I can focus on a topic for work in order to earn money I would have no choice but to par expenses.

Have you met the evils of lack of motivation working from home? Do you find yourself bored in the traditional workforce or do you work from home and find there are days when you long for the traditional workforce?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
