This came from a blogger that I so enjoy following.

Do you ever sit down in front of a blank page, after finally finishing all of your procrastination, and then just find yourself staring at the blank page with no idea of what to write or where to start?

There’s a brilliant exercise that I read a few years ago, in an incredibly good and depressingly short lived writing magazine, that was all about how to choose your first word when you’re having trouble finding one. It’s quick, as the name suggests. It’s fairly simple, and all you need is a book within easy reach. So I thought I’d share it with you.

What may be called wood collage is the dominan...
Wood Collage

Collage: Write What You See

Study the collage on this page. Relax and focus so that you take in the colors as well as the composition. Now write whatever comes to mind. Don’t stop to think or edit. Try to fill at least one double-spaced page before you stop. Keep writing past one page if the urge to do so is there.

Now put the page away. Don’t look at it for a week. After that, take it out and read it over. See if there is anything that jumps out at you. Anything that you could use to create a character or a story.

You can also do this exercise with other pictures of your choice or sensory objects. Another idea is to go to a place that has an emotional charge for you. Sit, take in the ambiance while you write the same way you did in the above exercise.

This is an excellent way to rid yourself of writer’s block.

As always, I wish you good writing and success.

Rid yourself of writer’s block. Take the challenge.

Characters in Conflict

Two characters in conflict over the setting, place them indoors or outdoors, public or private, where one character wants to go and the other one wants to stay. Make sue to include dialogue and details of setting. Use small paragraphs and have a new paragraph each time there is a new speaker. (Dr. Greg Oaks)

Good writing to all who choose to take the challenge!

Fear sneaks up on you and kills creativity.  Be it insecurity or fear of failure or fear of rejection, or whatever it is, it kills.  How do you counter it? How do you keep writing in the face of fear?
