Monday Writing Tips

I got these online.

  • Brainstorm words or images about your topic. Don't stop to evaluate their worth. Keep writing down ideas. When you can't think of another word, wait a while. Often the most powerful idea will surface after you have cleared all the less valuable ideas out of the way.

  • Write a page or two with your eyes shut.

  • It doesn't matter if you can't read what you've written. You are giving your mind permission to make "mistakes" and just get on with it.

  • Write with music in the background.

  • Experiment to find the style that you like. I prefer baroque or classical music. One of my writing teachers needed country and western.

  • Give yourself permission to be emotional.

  • If your writing begins to move you, experience the full emotion. Before your writing changes others it will change you.
