Ah YouTube. It’s amazing to me that in the day of the Internet and viral videos, authors continue to suffer writer’s block. YouTube alone is such a wealth of inspiration, and it’s all right there, in glorious stream of consciousness search mode, just waiting for your fingertips type something. Anything.
Today, I typed the word “secrets of.” But rather than “finish” my search by supplying the “what,” I decided to let YouTube offer suggestions. YouTube didn’t disappoint. It provided ten choices. Ten gloriously tantalizing topics to write about. I started with “secrets of the moon,” remembering that I have a fun novel outline in my story bank that includes a plot thread which follows a lunar archeologist.
But that isn’t the video I’m sharing here. No, this one is about Hitler’s skull. That’d make a fantastic book title, and it’s got bestseller potential, wouldn’t you agree? So. *rubs hands together briskly* Who’s gonna write it first???
