I've been wanting to start a new blog for a long time, and that desire has only increased as some of you have started fun blogs of your own. I want it to have some kind of "hook" or theme, and after discarding several ideas, I think I've come up with one I like.
I love to write fiction. I'm not particularly good at it, but I enjoy it (and practicing will help me improve, yes?). Sometimes, though, I have trouble finding inspiration. But I just remembered an exercise we did in a fiction-writing class I took in college where we were given a picture with no captions or words of any kind, and had to write a story based on it. Like a caption contest, but expanded. So I thought, for my blog, I could get pictures from around the internet and use them to write a few [hopefully entertaining] paragraphs.
So now I need your help. Here are my questions.
1. Does my idea suck?
2. What blog site should I use?
3. Ideas for a name? I thought about "A Thousand Words", as in "a picture is worth..." but I don't think I'm crazy about it.
4. Does anyone want to find me a picture to use for my first entry? I would rather not have to find them myself, because I'll be tempted to cheat and pass over pictures that strike me as challenging.
