Week 226

Free association is described as a “psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content.” Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.

That’s an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we’re just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I’ll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.

“Rules are, there are no rules.” There are no right or wrong answers. Don’t limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head.

  1. Savage ::
  2. Warrior ::
  3. Daisy ::
  4. Schedule ::
  5. Rock, paper, scissors ::
  6. Medical ::
  7. Jade ::
  8. Elevator ::
  9. Drain ::
  10. Goldfish ::

  1. Savage :: Not a nickname, just a surname
  2. Warrior :: I hate the way most Americans on telly pronounce this word. It isn’t wo-yer. There are three syllables in there. THREE. I’m taking to you Worf.
  3. Daisy :: Chain War. We read this book in primary school. So you can well imagine the giggling that resulted during the sex scene.
  4. Schedule :: timetable.
  5. Rock, paper, scissors :: Best out of three
  6. Medical :: emergency
  7. Jade :: Dragon
  8. Elevator :: Lift
  9. Drain :: brain
  10. Goldfish :: Neil Gaiman

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess

I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an

aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog

writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

When I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-

checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment.

Is there any means you may remove me

from that service? Thanks!
