Now back to our regularly scheduled posting!!
So ever Monday I give you a snippet from a story I'm working on. Mystic is the one I've been recently sharing with you, I opened my notebook one day and the story spilled along the pages.
It got me thinking. I have two excersizes that work well for me, one being tales from the notebook and the other being writings on the wall. For you newbies writings on the wall is a project I started while starting this blog. It gives me a new perspective on writing. I can move the whiteboard to any area of the house and the different views from the windows gives me a new idea, more inspiration.
Both ideas work well for me if I'm stumped on my writing. I can just write something silly, or write the questions I'm having with myself on the board or paper. I give it time to marinate and sooner or later the idea's start to flow. I have used another way to snag ideas as well and it's called ideas from the floor, another one I'm a huge fan of using. So I suppose that means I have three creative writing techniques.
So I was wondering do you have excersizes much like mine that you lean on? Do you ever look at life from a different angle to help with writing? Do you write on the walls, notebooks or floors??
This week I would have shared a snippet but the ideas weren't flowing how I would have liked so talking about writing seems to be the topic this week!
