My Personal Alphabet. I was reading through a book of journaling ideas for those times when you want to write but are having that awful thing called Writer's Block. One of the ideas was to create a Personal Alphabet. You just write something using each letter of the alphabet. It can be anything. How you feel, what you like, what you don't like, what you want, what you are thankful for, (get the point?) etc. It also said, a good idea is after you do it, put it away and then redo it again in 6 months and compare your answers. Just don't look at your old answers until you finish the new ones.
I have decided to put a different twist on it this time. I may do the original one, one day, but today I am going to write the very first thing that pops into my head after I say the letter. Kind of like the ink blot test. just write the very first thing that pops up in your brain.
So here goes....My Personal Alphabet....
A- A is for Apple. J is for Jacks Cinnamon Toasted Apple Jacks.
B-Be there...Or Be square.
C- Oh cannonball, oh cannonball ....Yes, I realize the song is Oh Tannenbaum, but I wrote the first thing I thought of when I said the letter C. I'm following the rules!!
D- Delaware (don't ask, I have No Idea why)
E-Walk Like an EGYPTIAN
F- Frontal Lobotomy (maybe this wasn't such a great idea after all)
G- Gee Whiz
I- I spy with my little eye...
K- Krackle (as in Snap, Krackle, Pop....hhmmm am I subconsciously wanting some cereal?)
L- Lan' Sakes (My Grandmother used to use that expression)
O-Open your eyes
P- Perhaps....Just Perhaps
Q- Quality vrs Quantity
R- Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down (Karen Carpenter)
S- Sanford and Son (I didn't even like that show!)
T-Tardy--haha--now that's funny. Describes me to a "T"--T...get it ..T (I can't tell, are you laughing?)
W-Why? Why Not??
Y- Yonkers (never been there, never even thought about it..or have I? It was the first Y word that came to my mind)
Z- Zanadu-- actually I think it was spelled Xanadu but it is what I thought of when I said Z. It was an old movie (flop) with Olivia Newton John. I never saw the movie, but remember the song.
Now I know my ABC's , Next time won't you play with me?
This was an interesting thing to do. Kind of makes one wonder what's going on up there in those brain cells....
Hope you do it sometime. I'm interested in seeing all of your answers. Just remember...You MUST write the VERY first thing that pops into your head.
