Taken Aback

I was looking for blog prompts to prepare for next year, and I think I just found a generator of sorts. The other writing ideas the site contains look like crap, but as I pressed the Prompt Generator I was suddenly taken aback by the question it posed.

“Why do you think nobody understands you?”

For starters, I don’t particularly like the presumptuous nature of the question, nor how boldly it asks. Or maybe I love it, but hate it for all its brilliance. (I do that a lot… love & hate things; I hate that I love, and I love what I hate) Anyway, that’s one scary question and I’m just talking about the question instead of actually answering it.

Anyway, I’m not making myself clear, but I’m not answering the question. Maybe at a later date.

  1. That’s a thought provoking prompt. You don’t usually find these kinds of prompts in generators, only in classroom settings and really, really honest people. If you are planning on answering this question, I will look forward to reading it.

    Thanks for the well wishes. You’re right. I always leave around this time of year and then come back in the spring. However, I’m gonna try to break this trend this year [or is it next year?].
