From "MomforLife" to "Perspicacity" (A Mama Kat Writing Workshop Prompt)
I should have known something was up when Kat posted this week's writing prompts a day early. It wasn't just that she wanted us to have 24 more hours to craft witty, informative, emotionally available writing posts. Oh no, I am pretty sure it was because of the "bonus" prompt, the vlog prompt, encouraging us to:
Tell us the story behind the title of your blog. What is it? What inspired it? What other options did you consider? Are you happy with it?
Of course I couldn't resist. There were a few lessons learned along the way.
1) Spring for the webcam.
2) If you have not sprung for the webcam, but opted to rig up a funky cardboard box "tripod" and decide that the lighting would be best with the Florida sun streaming in behind you, don't order the camera battery that actually holds a charge from a mail order place the morning of the day when you will need a camera with a fully charged battery in order to re-do your vlog when you realize that the lighting decision you made was completely wrong and you should have done the opposite. It won't get there in time and the battery will die after your only take, the one with the crappy lighting.
3) See #1.
At any rate, here it is. I'm the one in the shadows whose mouth you can sort of see moving.
What'll you have for us next week, Kat? Something else for me to apply my "acute mental vision and discernment" to? Make it too nutty and you'll earn the nickname, "Kernish Kat"!
