Sometimes being a writer can be a total bitch. For instance, there are times you’ll start on a certain topic but then, as you progress you find that the original concept that you were writing about is completely different from where you actually end up. Take this morning for example – I started out writing a piece on “How Your Personality Matches the Car You Drive”. I thought of my friends and how their cars sometimes match their personalities to a tee and started writing. As I got about 3 paragraphs into it I suddenly thought – shit, I’m totally heading off topic and into the realm of comparing one car to another in the form of an impromptu review. This is not were I wanted to go.
I then started thinking about a weekend conversation that I had with some buddies that pertained to the kind of cars that we would actually plunk down our hard earned cash for. This then got me started on yet another automotive tangent that would most likely have turned into a 3000 word article that quite honestly I didn’t feel like writing. Then something wonderful happened. A buddy sent me this picture and I began to do free word association in my head. I thought cars, wood and for some reason chicks and then POOF!! The perfect idea! So, with the above picture in mind, I’d like to ask you a very simple question. What automobile out there, be it new or old gives you the equivalent of an automotive semi?
It’s amazing where inspiration can come from isn’t it?
