Same dragon, different day.

In honor of National Health Blogging Month, I’m going to write one post a day for the entire month of November, starting today. WeGo Health has kindly come up with 30 writing prompts. I like that idea, as I can’t always think up something to write. Today’s prompt is to come up with five working titles for an imaginary book about my life, community, condition or Health Activism. Whew! And then, as if that wasn’t enough, describe one book jacket.

Oh, jeezly crow. Here goes:

1. An American Gimp in Germany

2. The Elephant Chase

3. A Flare for Blogging

4. A Cane of my Own

5. Heat Rub: Living with RA

Silly, eh? At least they didn’t ask for the opening paragraph for each working title. Now, as for that book cover…

It’s an illustration in grays and blues of a vast, deserted shipping harbor. In the middle of it is the back-view of a short, disheveled woman stands leaning on a cane, a purse slung over her shoulder and a slim reporter’s notebook in her free hand. In the distance we see what the woman cannot: A cunning Indian elephant hiding behind a stack of shipping containers. In large white letters over the top third of the illustration are the words “The Elephant Chase.” Smaller, at the bottom, is the author’s pen name, “Wren Hopper.”

Hey, it’s a start.

    Good Luck on your 30 days! It’s tough sometimes thinking of what to say even with prompts. I like your book titles- they made me giggle. Sorry I have been out of touch-no excuses- you know what happens. I hope you are well.
