Just One Bird’s Thoughts About Stuff

Yes. I know. This picture has absolutely nothing to do with this page. Made you look though, didn't I? lol.

Anyone who has ever aspired to be a writer has grappled with that haunting feeling of having writer’s block. My youngest daughter, Caitlyn, described it best. She is a very talented artist, as well as a writer. She once told me she never had nothing to paint, or sketch, or write about. Instead, she just had too many ideas flapping around in her brain, and the sheer numbers had blocked the funnel, and nothing was getting through. I really liked that analogy. I am the same way. There is always those times I can’t seem to find something worthwhile to write about; but as a general rule, it is because the funnel is clogged, not that the ideas just aren’t there.

For me, the best unblocking for my brain during those times is Quora. People from all around the world ask and answer questions about every subject under the sun. It usually takes me about 4.5 minutes of browsing before something will catch my interest, and I can almost hear the satisfying flushing sound of a writer’s block being plunged right out of my brain.

As of today, 9/4/15, I’ve answered 828 questions on Quora, had 3.37k upvotes (the measure of just how well received your answer was by other Quora participants), and have even had one answer voted as the very best Quora answer on a subject, and published on the Huffington Post – Former PBOL (Proud Bandido Old Lady) On the Culture and Lifestyle of the Bandidos Biker Gang.

This page is just a little index of questions and my answers that I either liked, was embarrassed by, hated, found interesting, or just think might be interesting to my readers. I’m not a paid spokesman for Quora, and trust me, you have to do some sifting through to find the treasures, but since most of you guys are writers too, I thought you might enjoy using Quora, too.

I was going to copy and paste some of them right here, but let’s face it. I’m entirely too long-winded for all that. Instead, I’m just going to have to post links. It’s no wonder I can’t make Twitter work for me! 140 characters is what I use for my titles alone!!
