On Embracing My Inner Nerd

I love writing. Of course, if you've ever read this blog you already know this.

If you haven't, welcome. Please find a seat anywhere, make yourself comfy and enjoy a drink. It's open bar here, and for those of you not interested in alcohol there is a mighty nice cocoa bar over there in the corner.

See it? Yes, it is decorated in sparkly pink that even the Pink Ranger would be shocked by. Thanks for noticing.

When you're comfortable introduce yourself, or lurk for a while. We, and by we I mean I, will enjoy your company either way.

Anyway, today I took a trip to the local Barnes and Noble, a place I haven't been since I purchased my Kindle almost two years ago.

While there I stumbled upon a book of writing topics. Something targeted at teachers to give students ideas on what to journal about.

I was intrigued.

Why didn't they have this when I was in school? Or did they, and I was too busy being a teenager to notice, after all, boys were so dang interesting and distracting, right?

I flipped through it, and you know what, it has some pretty cool stuff in it. So, I bought it.

Yeah, I know.

I'm a nerd.

Good thing I'm okay with that. After all, I'm no longer a teenager, and I fully embrace all facets of myself.

I'm looking forward to writing about some of the 180 topics.

Do you embrace your inner nerd? I'd love to hear, or in this case read, about one of your nerd embracing moments.

Join me!

If you need help or maybe some liquid courage, the bar is still open.



  1. Hi there.. here from RenRound... I love your writing style.. Cant wait to see whats in that book.. Maybe you could tell me what its called so I can go look for it too.. I am new to blogging and ideas are always needed. ... I am a nerd as well but in so many ways I wouldn't know where to start!! :)  

  2. I am not familiar with Pink Ranger, but I will guess Power Ranger...and I imagine the color to be Barbie pink. ??? This font is almost impossible for me to read, however.

  3. You're right Pamela, it is a Power Ranger, and the color is pretty close to Barbie pink. My daughter had an obsession with the Mystic Force version of Power Rangers last month. I think it's finally passed. :)

  4. Shauna, I'm so glad you stopped by! The name of the book is "Journal Writing Warm-up Activities." It's from the series the Daily Spark. I found it at B and N but you could probably even find it on Amazon or at any larger store. Hope that helps. :)
