Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Titles to Write By

"Titles to Write By" is an occasional post in which we play with a single word and turn it into, what else, titles! Afterwards the object is to pick one of them and write a little something.

It was Ray Bradbury, in his book ZEN IN THE ART OF WRITING, who taught me about making lists of words and turning them into titles. If you haven't read his book I highly recommend it.

Turning a word into a number of different titles is a great writing prompt as well as being fun to do.

For no particular reason today's word is:


I'm lying. There IS a reason why today's word is TRAVEL. If, in a few days, you happen to check out my personal facebook page, you may well discover the reason why.

Now, let's get on with playing.

Traveling the Light Fandango
The Traveler's Sorrow
Travel Long, Travel Hard
How I Traveled to Jupiter and Back
Travel Diary of a Crazy Woman
I'm Not a Hobo, I'm a Traveler
Traveling is Dangerous to Sheeple
How Traveling Spread Human's Around the World
The Nomad Who Hated to Travel
Traveling to Antarctica is Not Cool

I hope some of these brought a smile to your face and that you'll share your travel titles in the comments!

Are you much of a traveler? Do you enjoy traveling? What the farthest you've ever traveled? What's the most exotic or exciting place you've ever traveled to?

Sorry Traveling Wilburys is already taken... Handle With Care.


  1. Travel Diary of a Crazy Woman sounds interesting.

  2. Travels with a Thousand Cats. Wait, that could be my real life.

  3. Did you know TRAVEL spelled backwards is LEVART? I have an instant visual of SHEEPLE :)

  4. Hi Bish .. don't tell me you're off again ... I shall see what happens during the week.

    The Okavango Delta ... fantastic place - I've been incredibly lucky ..

    Cheers Hilary

  5. Now, I would probably pick up the book about the travel hating nomad. I'm intrigued.

  6. Where are you off to? Visiting Erva?

    Total homebody here, but have traveled a lot in my youth.

  7. I enjoy traveling and move around a lot. Furthest place, ah you know the VI of course.

    'Travel Your Troubles Away'

  8. The next time I'm stuck with a title, I'll do this sort of brainstorming with one word.

  9. I'm up for I'm Not a Traveler. I'm a Hobo" but I'm also very partial to the opposite. I'm sending you a word so you can create a title for me. I'm lousy at that.

  10. Fun post, Bish.

    My titles will be:
    - Traveling to Hell and Back.
    - Traveling to Paradise and Back.
    (We actually have a Hell, MI and a Paradise, MI.)

    The farthest I've ever traveled was to The Bahamas when my hubby and I took a cruise for our honeymoon.

  11. So many people love to travel. I'm definitely a home body. Circumstances have forced me to do a fair amount of traveling during my life time but it is never a pleasure for me. I tend to cling to the familiar, the home and hearth. I like to do my traveling in books and youtube.
