Here are this week’s writing prompts, to fuel your creativity.
1) She stared at him. Was it really that long ago ……….
2) This moment, was the opportunity of a lifetime.
3) She was a business woman by day, and a disco diva by night.
4) He couldn’t believe his eyes.
What do you think?
Besides writing non-fiction how-to business books, I also enjoy writing children’s picture books for 3-5 years.
To write for children you need to bring out the child in you. By this I mean:
● Watch children’s TV.
● Read children’s stories.
● Have things a child would have such as cuddly toys or action figures.
● Play like a child would play – On diggers or swings.
● Go to kid’s club at the cinema and watch kids movies in a room full of kids.
● Go on day trips to where children would go – The beach, zoo, theme park.
● Play with and be around children.
● When you are with children, act like a kid, make animal noises, be energetic, make up stories, use your imagination.
● Think young, act young, be young.
If you get the chance, watch the Sooty Show, like I did at Brean Leisure Park.
I have had to venture out of hibernation today, to do some food shopping for me, Daisy, Cinnamon, Snuggles and Snow.
After being indoors for the last few days, working on my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, it is good to get out and about to refresh my writer’s mind.
Being the quirky person I am, I am currently sitting in front of Exeter Cathedral, eating sugar free ice-cream in the cold and wind.
I also enjoy going to the cinema to refresh my writer’s mind. What do you enjoy doing to refresh yours?
Write as soon as I am able to
My apologies for not blogging for a while. I have been very poorly and although I did make it to London for Valentine’s Day, I had to cut my holiday short due to illness.
I have to say that this has been one of the worst periods of illness in my life to date and I have been so weak that at the worst peak of my infection I couldn’t:
- Write many texts
- Write any Facebook messages
- Write any LinkedIn updates
- Write any tweets
- Write any blog posts
- Write any web content
- Write any of my book content
- Write any notes
- Read my emails
- Respond to emails
- Read any books
Sometimes it’s hard to realise just how much of my life is spent writing and doing things related to my writing, such as reading books. I have learnt during this time to always count my writing blessings twice and to never take my writing for granted.
Although I am still off work sick I am able to write again and it is a fantastic feeling.
I would encourage you all to make a list of the writing activities that you do and take time out to appreciate each one of them. Think what your life would be like without writing in it and never take your writing for granted.
Until next time, keep writing and enjoying it.
