Despite the lack of entertaining randomly-generated spam subject lines these days, I finally got another one that was worthy of inspiring a writers’ exercise: “The Narcissistic Dungeon.” Write this phrase at the top of a piece of paper (or document file), set a timer for 10-30 minutes, and start writing. I can imagine a wealth of literal, figurative, and partially figurative ways in which this might be taken, as inspiration for journaling, philosophical musing, or fiction.
As a side note, it can be a helpful exercise in its own right to look to something in your life that’s as annoying or inconvenient as spam emails and find a way to get something helpful, inspiring, and provocative out of it. If there’s a small thing like this that drives you nuts from day to day, try to find a way to derive something of benefit from it. Anything can act as inspiration, particularly if it irritates—just as a grain of sand provokes the formation of a pearl. Not all inspiration must come from something that is beautiful.
