Musician Pete Wentz once said: “I’m an insomniac, my mind works the night shift.”
Many of us similarly have minds working well past bedtime. In fact, journaling is often credited with helping active minds shed restlessness and come to rest once the playground of the written page has been thoroughly exhausted.
For creative people and those challenging their minds to grow, journaling might not only be helpful in work, it may also be essential in life. It’s no wonder why active thinkers, creatives, students, and entrepreneurs are ravenous consumers of notebooks and journals — especially those with titles that cater to the quirkiness of high IQ creatives.
These folks are among my absolute favorite audiences to target on KDP. Why? Because it really gives me an opportunity to flex my creative muscles and explore the outer reaches of my absurd sense of humor.
Creatives in a wide variety of fields (from writing to art) appreciate “genius humor.” By genius humor, I’m referring to composition notebooks and journals with outlandish titles such as:
- “Proof That I’m a Genius”
- “Brilliant Things Only a Psychopath Could Think Of”
- “Insert Genius Ideas Here”
- “Smart Thoughts From My Really Smart Brain”
To be clear, most of my titles are even more absurd and crazy sounding than the examples shared above.
Regardless of how mild or full-throttle your approach is, just embrace a hearty degree of faux arrogance and absurd humor and you’ll be on the right track in this bankable KDP niche.
