Off Tangent Thoughts Meme

(YOU CAN USE THIS LOGO IN YOUR POSTS)

Off Tangent Thoughts was originally created out of a post which I had an incredibly amazing time planning and writing and to top that off it was received with an immense amount of laughter and love by everyone in the bookish community. Following that a few bloggers insisted on writing their own thoughts based off the original post, planting a little seedling of an idea that grew up to be this meme. Off Tangent Thoughts(OTT) is a bi-monthly meme that has a basic list-based format wherein bloggers express their points in the form of a short or long list with the points under the list being merely a couple lines or even complete paragraphs. Bloggers are also free to use headings or bring in other variations- put your own spin on it if you like. After all it’s just about letting your thoughts run wild!

 

HOW IT WORKS

Every 1st and 3rd Saturday I will be putting up prompts based on which everyone can write their own posts. For prompts that will be released on the 1st Saturday, bloggers can write and publish their posts over the next two weeks, that is, until the 3rd Saturday from when posting for a fresh prompt will begin and continue uptil the 1st Saturday of the next month and so on. On the rare occasions when we have a 5th Saturday I will keep an open prompt where everyone can generate a topic of their own or catch up on previous OTT prompts they may have missed. Everyone is encouraged to interpret the prompt however they like and be innovative with their posts. I myself will be uploading my posts for every prompt at 12am IST each 1st and 3rd Saturday so that everyone participating can link their posts back to my post for that prompt. I am also putting up a schedule of prompts that will be regularly updated so that everyone can get a glimpse into the future prompts and plan their posts accordingly.
