For today’s prompt, write about something you’ve recently learned that you didn’t know before, or didn’t fully understand? How was the new information helpful to you? How are you using that information?
I’ve put off all day doing this prompt. As an overly curious seeker of knowledge, you’d think this would be an easy prompt for me. And really, it should be, but somehow today, it’s not. You see, in the last few months, I have learned tons and tons of new information on a variety of topics: the basics of horror writing, how to write film noir style whodunits, information on those I’ve chosen here for my People Who Inspire Me on A2Z, stuff on herbs and vitamins, low carb dieting, meditation techniques, and the list goes on and on and on. A lot of it was new information, some of it was just refreshers. All of it has been helpful. Some of it I’ve used and some of it is stored away for a later date. To zero in on one thing and discuss it at length just seems, well… exhausting. Mainly because I would have to go back through my research to dig up whatever information I’d want to share here. And frankly, I just don’t have the stamina today to do it. So, suffice to say, I am an active researcher, I am always seeking new knowledge, absorbing it, saving it, and moving on to another topic of interest.
How about you, dear readers? Have you learned something new recently that you didn’t know about before? Share your thoughts with me in comments.
