Breaking Dumb

A quick thought on inspiration…

stop and think pngNext time your muse deserts you and you’re banging your head against the keyboard and praying for ideas, try this: what was the worst too-dumb-to-live decision you ever made? Seriously. What decision  made you wonder, during or later, what was I thinking??  If you don’t want to face your own demons or you never made any bad decisions, ask your friends. I guarantee you’ll hear the most hilarious, tragic, and bizarre tales of human misbehavior ever.

You cannot make this stuff up.

Use the unlimited resources of your own life or the lives of others to populate your stories and novels with chaos and pathos, humor and heartbreak. Don’t forget to change the names of the crazed people involved. Also, remember, since you are the boss here, you can change the outcome, making bad decisions have great results.

Either way, it’ll be fun or frightening.

It’ll leave you thinking, holy s**t, that was a close one!

What was the dumbest thing you ever did and lived to tell about?

  1. A really great idea – but I’ll never tell! 😉

  2. Ha ha. After this post, I should be up nights writing about dumb things I’ve done. What a great idea. Now let me think… 😀

  3. As I went down the list of all the stupid things I’ve done, I came to the conclusion that most of them involved men, and many of them ended happily when my now husband swooped in to save me!
    Great topic. 🙂

    • Ah! Men. So many of my stupid decisions involved men. But, once that stuff was out of my system and I was still alive, I knew a good thing when I saw him and we married! Another happy ending:)
