I was on Tumblr for three years in university. I don’t use it anymore, but it is a fun site to distract yourself.
Right now, I’m just satisfied with reading posts from pages like “The Best of Tumblr” and finding things on Pinterest and BuzzFeed. I often smirk if I’m scrolling through social media and I find something funny, but some posts on Tumblr have made me chuckle out loud, even if I found it from another site.
I also notice that some people say they want to see a book no one has written (yet) and they will describe their ideas. Most reactions are either praising the idea, or they add ideas.
Like this one.
And this one.
Along with this one.
I would totally read all of these, by the way.
I’m not the only one who notices this, of course, because Buzzfeed did an article with a collection of these posts.
As much as I love seeing different writing ideas, these posts drive me bonkers.
The ideas I’ve found through these Tumblr posts, among others, are fantastic and I can say I haven’t read anything like it. If someone already has a good idea for a story, they should just start writing it.
