[Error: unknown template qotd]This one is hard! I would probably say Jars of Clay's self-titled first album. It's kind of odd, because I don't really listen to any of their other albums, and they are a Christian band, and I am not religious in any way.

But as an album that I've been listening to for the past...twenty two years or so...it hasn't gotten old, and when I pull it out, I will listen to it over and over.

A close second is Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes

I've always assumed that Writers Block is to stir creativity for budding writers. Is that why you participate? I mean, are you interested in getting into writing the next great American novel?

heh, when I was young I had all these theories that because I *read* so much, I must need to write a novel.

And when I was in college, and starting to find the internet, I found fanfic - and I even wrote some - mostly short stories. Then, right after my final exams in college, when I had graduated, but hadn't yet figured out what was *next* - I wrote a really long story - and it was WORK. It wasn't really fun, it was like I had to sit down and get the scenes out of my head and onto the page, and it took forever to do it right. But I eventually finished it, and although there could have been a sequel, that was about the time when my brother went into the hospital, and I moved home, and things were unsettled for a few months - and I never really got back into it.

Since then, I haven't really found the urge to tell a story. But I do like the occasional writing prompt - I've just found these Writer's Block prompts. I also do like the "30 things about you" and other daily writing prompts - sometimes it's kind of neat to be forced to *think* about something and come up with an answer to a question.

I was the same a couple years ago, thought I had a story to tell. Then life got in the way. I don't know if I have the sticktoitiveness to write. I'm sure I'd either get bored or be too nitpicky and never finish anything.

I still do like the odds and ends, 30 things about you. I found a couple in my archives.

I love Jars of Clay, even though I'm not religious in any way either.
