Word-less

Questions and Answers signpost

Have you ever written a post that made you want to cry when you re-read it?

Have you ever finished a post and then felt like you didn’t have anything else to say (at least for awhile)?

That’s how I felt about this.

I think I finally put words to what my heart has been silently screaming. And with the cathartic release, I feel free. And a little empty. And a lot word-less.

And so this week I have decided to steal a play from my friend @inprogress‘s playbook and answer your questions.

So, in the comments below, please leave some hearty blog-post-worthy questions. Ask me anything… about life, about work, about blogging, about twittering, about relationships, about Nashville, about Birmingham, about restaurants (I love, love, love to talk about restaurants)… and I will pick a few and will be on way.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Lindsey has a sincere love for her precious dogs Molly and Maisy, a good red wine and the Delta Sky Club. She spends her days (and some nights) laboring to end childhood hunger at Feed the Children and to gather, equip and unleash women at IF:Gathering.

  • Fair enough…I live in Nashville but my family business (and the rest of my family) and our showroom are in Birmingham. So, what do you think are the best restaurants in each city that may not be as popular/well known as they deserve?

    • That will be a fun one. I will do it soon. Maybe not this week, but soon! Thanks.

  • Lindsay, I would really like to see you write a post with the five people you respect the most and why you respect them.

  • Hmm…
    What's something people tend to misunderstand about you?
    Go.
    My recent post More Than Chick-N

    • hmmm…that's a good question. a good question that i don't know if i have an answer for. but you've got me thinking.

    I've been very wordless as of late and wonder if something is wrong. Am I cut out for this blogging thing to be at a stand still after only 8 months. I don't think it's writer's block but just plain introspection or a quiet spirit.

    I dunno.

    It's frustrating but the question and answer idea is a great one for bridging the gap. So here's one… what do you do (other than a question & answer session) if you get writer's block or stuck in a rut? Any tips? Any handy creative exercises? What 'cha got?

    My recent post I like BLT’s as much as the next guy.

  • Hi Lindsey, I would love to read a post about what inspires you most in life 🙂
    My recent post "When UnSpoken Things become Spoken": Guest Blogger Friday

  • First off, I think this is a creative way to break through running out of ideas or just getting stuck generally in writing. My blog is bare because I started it as a semi-anonymous place to vent and am in the process of making it more publicly mine – I also struggle with finding balance because I write for a living and I've been a bit too skittish to share too much personal detail. I'm also still trying to find my "voice" and I hope I'm getting closer to it.
    The two suggestions I have are:
    What are some "hidden treasures" about Birmingham you encountered in your time there? I'm thinking about things outsiders might be surprised to learn about – such as stereotype breakers, fun shops and other places of business or any other endearing qualities.
    Go deeper on your interest in restaurants. What are the origins of this interest? What role does community play in your enjoyment of particular places? For example, this could include being recognized and treated as a regular and part of the "family." What are some other qualities you find essential to a good restaurant and why are these important?
    Hope this helps. Thanks for letting me play along! 🙂

  • i have a similar post in my drafts folder!

    thanks for the phone call today — it meant a whole lot. and i can't wait to see you in a couple weeks. i think i'll save my questions for then, but i'm excited to see what comes of this!

  • 1. what is your favorite comfort food?
    2. what is your favorite chocolate?
    3. would you rather have ice cream or cake?
    4. what is the craziest thing you've eaten?

    LOL i know this sounds like slambook questions…but you can tell a lot from a person by what their favorite food is 😉

  • How does one become a publicist?
    Seriously, I work with guys and girls for many publishers to get review copies of materials. But, how on earth do you start a career as a publicist? What is the work like?
    Thanks.

  • Have you traveled much outside the USA? If so, tell us about some of your adventures and whether the time abroad was life changing or not…

  • I just read your referenced post and – I hope that you NEVER feel that being 30'ish, single, and female, is a bad thing!!

    With that said…

    Have you ever let God romance you? Seriously?
    Do you know His heart for you?
    What do you think it would look like if He was romancing you?
    – (Not just sunsets and happy dogs, but everyday life.)
    Have you ever thought that He can meet the intimate needs of your life and heart like a 'man' could?
    Would you let Him?

  • How has networking/connecting changed where you are today?
    Do you have a specific strategy for networking?

  • How do you recommend a person seek out balance between personal and professional life and circles? Especially when one works for a 'Christian' organization, when ministry and vocation can be so closely intertwined.

  • Ideas:
    Why Chipotle might just be the greatest food there is
    Why running sucks, yet is awesome (I hate running, but this is about you, right?)
    The one thing in life you are most passionate about
    The one cause that you burn to fight for
    The glory of Dr Pepper
    How watching Desperate Housewives should not strip you of your man-card (oh wait..)

    • you crack me up…

      and just for the record…i think running sucks too.

  • Lindsey – it seems like you have been really taking risks w/some of your posts and your tweets lately – i love it, it is wonderful!! soooo, that being said…. my suggestion is… pick a topic that forces you to jump off the safe ledge you might be currently standing on as a writer, a communicator, and a woman… and jump.

    write about that place, from the depths of who you are.

    if writing about this makes you catch your breath, or your stomach plummets to the floor… you have found your topic.

    🙂
