I’m not a computer freelancer, but I’ve found FreelanceSwitch.com has plenty to offer anyone looking to be more organized, more original, and more creative. I attempted the activity presented there by Robert Janelle earlier this week – solve a problem by writing a list of one-hundred solutions. Joe latched onto the idea from . In true interweb fashion, Janelle professes to have snagged the idea from Litemind writer, Luciano Passuello. By subscribing to Freelance Switch, I not only get a great idea to try but a link to a blog I’ve never heard of but which appears to be right up my alley (it’s about creating higher efficiency, which I need in spades).
I followed the guidelines from Janelle and Passuello and wrote out one-hundred possible blog topics for The Scrawl. Some I really dig (where and when I like to write, magazines and journals I read and why), some feel like I’m reaching a little (which pens and pencils I prefer to write with), and some are dependent on a specific timeline (writing about my thesis reading, comprehensive exam). Expect to read some posts generated from this list.
I plan on trying this one-hundred listing activity again for creative projects and work projects, and maybe even try it again for The Scrawl if the well begins to run dry. If there’s a topic you’d like me to write about in this blog then comment away, dear reader.
