|Quoth the Raven: Why is this phrase in my head?
Or, alternatively, how can I best steal your sandwich?
Sometimes I get this idea in my head, a phrase, a cadence… It sounds poetic and ‘writerly’ but it’s not. Because sometime’s it’s the chorus of a Lumineers’ song or something I overheard in traffic.
Today it’s “Quoth the Ravens.” Because the Ravens are playing the 49ers in the Superbowl (duh). There’s a joke in there somewhere. Or a saying. Or a kernel of wisdom. Or something. Some reason it’s stuck in my head.
On good days where I’m in my groove and words are tripping off my tongue and out of fingers, I can latch onto it. Here is why this is in my head. Here is why this is speaking to me right now.
I’m trying something new! A 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. Here are the rules…
- Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
- Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
- Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
