As you might have noticed already, I’m a list lover. Not the To-Do List lover, which tends to grow rapidly and even without my approval. But a list lover nonetheless.
Ever since my friend, j, mentioned being gifted with the “Curious Lists – A Creative Journal for List Lovers”, I’ve had it on my wish list. That was back in 2009.
This V-Day, the Chef and I agreed to exchange presents in the form of books. And since his cost more than my choice, I got to choose another something from my wish list – and went with the Curious Lists journal.
It is one amazing gift!
The book is small, will easily fit into my purse. It is divided into 26 chapters, like “Lists for Early Mornings”, “Lists for Rainy Days”, “Lists for When You’re on the Bus” (with my commute, that tends to be a lot of the time) and my favorite “Lists for No Particular Reason”. In each chapter list titles are given and the contents are to be written by me. As of first opening it, I am enchanted, captivated, and simply in love with this book!
Here are all of j’s lists thus far from the book. I plan to blog about some when I need a creativity boost.
So let’s have some fun. I’ll share one of my list titles and the content I come up with, in blog posts. Then, you let me know in the comment section what your lists would look like. Deal? Let’s start today with the following.
I opened the book at random, to page 66 and the chose the top list title, from the chapter “Lists for When You’re at Home, Sick”. I am not at home, sick. Unless you count suffering-when-not-writing a kind of sick. Anyway, this seemed appropriate for a first list, given that I’m a writer.
Letters of the alphabet that look good written on their own:
The way I handwrite them, at least. I am secretly in love with calligraphy. So I especially see these letters looking good written on their own. They could very well be putting their little innate palms up in a “Talk to the hand” gesture to all the other letters of the alphabet ;)
So, what do You think? Which letters of the alphabet look good written on their own?
