liv: alternating calligraphed and modern letters (letters)
[personal profile] liv
I am absolutely in love with [personal profile] kaberett's Daily December meme! I'm really enjoying seeing it spread through all the different bits of my social circle. It's been a really excellent way to continue to keep people who did things like NaBloPoMo or Clovember in the conversation after November ends. And it's led to some absolutely fascinating posts and conversations as well as doing marvels for the pure activity volume round here.

I missed Daily December because by the time I'd realized just how brilliant it was it was already some way into the month. In any case I'm a lot lot lot less busy in January than I have been in December, so I'm going to timeshift it and do a January version instead. I can't come up with any very good alliterations, because words related to jour have more or less lost the sense of "daily" in modern English, though daily record is the literal meaning of journal.

This is, by the way, the first time I've attempted a daily posting meme in the decade+ I've kept this "journal". I think, looking at January 2014, it's going to be doable, if I use some of the Xmas break to bank some posts in advance. So, as [personal profile] kaberett so wisely suggested, pick a day and tell me what you'd like me to write about.

I'll take any topic, any level of detail, whatever you feel like reading about. Just a title is fine, a paragraph of explanation of exactly what sort of issues you want discussed is fine. Questions, prompts, whatever you like. And I'm happy for prompts / requests from people I know well or total strangers or anybody in between. If you're the first to claim a day, I'll write for you. I think for a daily meme it'd be prudent to stick to prose; I'm far too slow at poetry to be able to keep up if people ask for verse. And if I don't manage to fill your "day" I'll come back and answer the prompt as soon as I can after January ends.

For Jan. 8th:

Take a fibonacci sequence of your DW profile interests (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, etc.) and tell us something about each corresponding interest (1st — academia — x2; 2nd — alice cooper — x1; etc. etc.) not commonly known. Can be as brief or expansive as you choose.

Not original to me! But yes, I'm really enjoying it - it's a challenge to write to prompts, and is also making me want to talk more about some of the other stuff going on; I'm really enjoying seeing what's coming out that isn't prompted, compared to what is.

January 24 - 10 (or another number if that's easier) books that you wish more people in your circle would read? Or books that are important to you, or that you especially love - something book-related, anyway.

I was just about to do this myself for January since I missed out on December since I always do the same daily meme every December. :)

January the 4d6 drop lowest: Gaming, of a non-computer kind. There are brief mentions of you doing some in the past, but only light whispers.

(Edit: And also consider throwing a topic my way; I have a few slots left, and a determination to catch up on the ones not written yet.)

Coming in late, but never mind. Happiness - what things (activities, people, things, thoughts) make you happy? Do you seek these out or do they just happen?

I see you have an empty slot coming up; I was going to suggest ambitions but you might want more of a run-up than that, so how about favourite recipes for tomorrow and ambitions for whenever you think is appropriate? :-)

A couple more suggestions if you'd like to fill up the slots.

- What was different about living abroad and would you like to do it again? (if so, where?)

- What kinds of music do you enjoy and what do you get out of them?

Hey! You still have gaps ...

For tomorrow (Jan 7) - an update on all things exercise

For Jan 27 - reflections on the beginning of a new year, both calendar and Jewish - compare and contrast .

Also, let's try to meet up this year? Maybe just encourage me to come to Cambridge sometime when you're there.

FWIW, I've been reading all of these, but don't really have time to comment, as there's a lot of material!

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
