5 Interesting Ways To Write


Hi Everyone

Just as I like my imagination to run wild with what I am writing. I decided to let it run wild with interesting ways that I could write.

This is what I came up with:

1) Whilst doing a headstand. All that blood rushing to ones head, would surely create a surge of brilliance.

2) Whilst on horseback. The feeling of riding on a horse should certainly give food for thought.

3) In underwater cave cavities. You would need waterproof paper for this. You can make notes on an E-reader but I have yet to come across a waterproof version. You heard it here first…..watch this space, Dragon’s Den, here I come.

4) By painting words on to canvas. Words and art, what a gorgeous combination.

5) By writing a book backwards. Starting with the back cover first, moving to the middle, progressing to the beginning and ending with the front cover. Fantastic.

Hi Everyone.

Whether you are a regular cinema goer or just love watching Steven Spielberg films, Super 8 looks as though it is going to take the cinema world by storm. From it’s breathtaking special effects, to it’s edgy production, are you up for watching it?  Or would you rather be writing your very own, Super 8 stories.

Here are 8 Super ideas you could use to create a Super 8 of your very own:

  1. What if the sky fell down?
  2. Your pet hamster turns into a vampire.
  3. You believe you are a human but find out you are an alien.
  4. You befriend a Zombie.
  5. You are 80 years old and accidentally cast a spell, which puts you in a 22 year old body.
  6. Your Skype camera switches itself on and engages with  your contacts without your knowledge, filming you the whole time.
  7. You wake up one morning dressed as a circus clown.
  8. Your house is taken over by giant ladybirds.

Write soon.

5 Inspirations To Write


Hello Fellow Writers

Are you lacking inspiration?  Wanting motivation?

If you are lost as to what to write next, check out these thoughts.

1)  What if plants were really aliens taking over the planet?

2)  What if colours could talk?

3)  What would happen if your clothes controlled you?

4)  What would happen if your website decided to create itself?

5)  What if someone who you didn’t know, tweeted you about secrets only your parents were supposed to know?

Whatever genre you like to write, I am sure you could develop these ideas into a publishable piece or use them to encourage other ideas to flow.

Good luck.

Happy Writing.

10 Reasons Why Writers Should Retreat


Hi Everyone.

Trying to juggle a full-time job with my writing career is demanding at the best of times but I finally managed to say, enough!  I am going into my ‘cave’ and I am not coming out until I have made good progress.   This time I stuck to it.

On my days off I decided to devote time to stay indoors and put all my effort and focus into writing my proposal for my new Redundancy book.  So far the results have been quite impressive.

I would highly recommend you gorge on pure writing pleasure, by insisting you retreat for a while.  I found it extremely beneficial and I believe you could too for the following reasons:

  1. You can allow yourself to experience character emotion in private.
  2. You can act out scenes from your plot without looking like you’ve lost it.
  3. You can write continuously without interruption, meaning fewer mistakes and less re-writes.
  4. You can organise your time more effectively.
  5. You will have a stronger sense of focus and will write better.
  6. Your imagination can run wild and come up with some fascinating stories.
  7. It will make you happy to do more of the thing you love the most.
  8. You will find it personally rewarding and fulfilling.
  9. You can channel your energy in a positive way.
  10. You will feel proud of your achievements.

Write soon.
