My "Steemit Tickler File" Spring, 2018 🖋

in #life4 years ago (edited)

"A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit."
- Richard Bach -

Updating this list is long overdue.

I maintain a list of potential Steemit articles. This is the newest version of that list.

This list is sort of a convenient place for me to accumulate ideas for Steemit posts. It is one of three tools that I use to help manage my Steemit presence.

I maintain this list, a list of favorite authors that I want to support and encourage others to support, and of course, my Steemit Library.

No Way To Go But Up

TIP OF THE DAY: Ignore Steemit, Inc.'s stupid little boxes. Click on any link or image in my articles, and see where it takes you! Trust me, you'll enjoy it.😉

I would simply edit and keep this list up to date,

but the #$&^@ stupid Steemit user interface prevents edits after just one week.

Breaking News! The restriction has been lifted, and I'm now editing this... :D

This restriction on author editing is just plain lame, as I've noted many times before.

I now only update this file once in a while, when I can no longer stand how far out of date it is. Today happens to be that day...

The very first of these reminders to myself can be seen HERE.

I also publish this list because I want readers.

If you see something in the list that intrigues you, or if you have another suggestion for an article I should write, please let me know.

What Would You Like Me To Write About?

Although new ideas keep bubbling to the surface, you can be sure that I'll give your requests priority treatment.

I have managed to trim the list.

Since the last version, I have succeeded in writing articles about these topics from the last version of this list:

  • Will there be lovemaking in heaven? Children?
  • NYM crypto - a little humor
  • How I met Jim Lovell - a true story
  • My Worst Surfing Injury Ever - Do you have a strong stomach?
  • My Surfboard Sings To Me
  • The recently expanded universe (1 to 2 trillion galaxies!)
  • More "How To Fix Anything" articles - How I fixed my wife's oven
  • Promoting the Steem Economy
  • More New Earth Fantasy Stories

Rather than link every one for you, I hope that (if you missed them) you'll visit my Library, find the article you're interested in, and read it. Just because Steemit only rewards "the latest and greatest" doesn't mean you can't reward yourself by looking up and enjoying my (still quite worthwhile) older articles!

Note: If an article isn't yet indexed in my Library, open my blog and scroll down to the most recent Library update... you'll find the article between there and the newest blog entry.

Here's my current, ever-growing,

ever changing list of the "gleams in my eye," the things that I think I have something to say about. Which article(s) should I write next? Let me know.

P.S. If you have an "in" with anybody at Steemit, Inc. - Would you please ask them to get rid of these damn, extremely annoying "off-website" arrow/boxes? The have, overnight, made Steemit ugly. There are much better solutions.

Noted, locked and loaded... ;)

I am so much last year's author, but up-dated, LOL - everyone wants yesterday's papers, no?

I'm kidding you, my friend, but you'll be endlessly updating your archive because even is in the dustbin of history

Your stories and poetry are timeless, my friend.... ;)

Thanks, Creatr :)

I want to see a picture of you surfing. You haven't done that one!!!

Thanks for considering me one of your favorite content creators....that's an honor!

You are so organized :)

Ah, but you have a picture of me surfing... My profile picture is a photo of me surfing... ;)

I only have an appearance of organization... It is totally in self defense against my utterly chaotic mind. Did you ever read this?

"Chaos-Brain" vs "Library-Brain"

You have a MASSIVE list of interesting potential topics. I'm always a fan of your fantasy/fiction writing, so that caught my eye. However, I'm curious about your take on missions ('Are missions futile?'). I had a discussion on that with an elder at my wife's church some time ago, and I'd be interested to see/read your insight on it.

Unrelatedly, I always like seeing DIY/fix-it articles. :)

Hey, Neg!

Thanks for weighing in on what caught your eye. Your first comment has caused me to heave a "deep sigh," because I want to write more fiction... but keep getting distracted! Thank you for the kick in the pants, I will try (soon-ish) to trot out and put into words one of the ideas that keeps resurfacing... :D

While it may end up being a different article than when I first jotted down "Are missions futile," I will also bump that closer to the head of the queue... and when it comes out, I'll definitely want to hear about your discussion with that elder.

Things keep breaking, so I'll keep on fixin' 'em...

So, THANK YOU for weighing in today... You're the first "real comment" responding to this list.

BTW, it is one of the three GIF links at the bottom of all my posts...

You are a multi faceted person drawing from many areas of expertise. I would welcome a series on your life story, influences, moments of change perhaps from childhood through today. You are a fascinating person for which I respect and learn from. Personal stories also help to make this platform come alive and real. Thanks @creatr.

Thanks, Troy...

There are already tons of autobiographical articles in my Library...

Fear not, there are bound to be more before I'm done. ;)

Thanks for sharing this post, you are a great ideas....I like your writing...
