As a Writer, I love coming up with my own ideas for stories. I am blessed to have a mind that is constantly thinking of new ideas. I realise how useful it can be, to read, see, hear, or do anything, that sparks the creative switch to ignite the brain into story mode.
From now on, I will be attempting to write a weekly Wednesday Writing Prompts post, to spark ideas for stories. There will be no genre restriction. I will try to keep them to around 4 per week and away you go.
What do you think of this? Good idea?
To start the ball rolling. Here are this week’s prompts:
1) She licked the chocolate ice-cream off his nipple. That was tasty ice-cream, she thought to herself.
2) He switched the tap on and blood gushed out of it. What was he going to do now?
3) I had never seen an elephant sat on a roof before. It looked quite comical.
4) He splattered her with ink. She wasn’t impressed.
If you read my last post, you will know that while I was in London last month, for the Success 2014 Seminar, I went to the Digital Revolution Exhibition.
I have more amazing videos to share with you.
Sometimes you may wonder how my activities relate to writing. Almost everything I do, I can connect to writing in some way. Some directly and others indirectly. I also feel it’s important for any reader to be able to understand what makes a particular writer tick, in order to better understand their writing and their nature.
From my own experience, this is how the Digital Revolution Exhibition, can help inspire you to write.
● Unlimited writing prompts
A good example of this, was seeing the original Altair and Mac designs. These can inspire you to write a drama set in the period they were produced. Alternatively, what’s the story behind those specifically. Why did someone buy each of them? What work is saved on them and why?
● The feeling of magic
The music, the atmosphere, things moving by sensor, touchscreen, special effects, create a feeling of magic. Can inspire you to create fairytales.
●Taking a behind the scenes look at films; Inception, Gravity and How to train your dragon 2.
Helps you to understand how a script can be brought to life.
●Fantasy becoming reality
Seeing things move by themselves and come to life. Such as a lamp like the one in the Pixar shorts, can get your creative juices flowing.
● Not believing your own eyes
Seeing yourself on screen; one minute with smoke coming from your face, the next stage, seeing yourself with wings and birds eating your body. Conjures up stories of illusion and fantasy.
● Future technologies
There is a solar powered dress on display which lights up. Couple that with the information that clothes in our future will be used to charge our mobile phone, makes you think up future Sci-fi adventures.
The Digital Revolution Exhibition, is at the Barbican in London until 14th September 2014.
If you have been wondering why I haven’t been blogging on here quite as much lately, I am currently working on my new design www.beatredundancyblues.com site. As my web host no longer services the site builder I used to build the site on, I have to create a new site using WordPress.org. This has to be done before I finish the final formatting of my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, because I cannot update the site and it is advertised on the front cover of my book. Thankfully, I love designing and creating. To create a new one is hard work and very time consuming, but pleasurable at the same time.
