In Your Opinion

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me?
Leave me your opinion.

"What's this about?" You frowned.

I'm going to explain how to gather writing
ideas from your opinions. Here are twenty
writing ideas.

1."Going Green" talk is everywhere. The
conception points to being safer, easier on
humans, and better for the environment. In
your opinion, what's the best way to start
the process?

Would you write an article, essay? A
short story detailing how a couple murdered
over the price of a solar roof.

2. If someone walked up to you, gave you
twenty dollars you didn't drop, would you
accept it? Write down your reaction to
the situation.

3. A friend helped him/herself to your
idea. In your opinion, out the person?
Talk to him or her, and come to a

A possible writing idea is a character,
in short or long fiction, caught with a
set of two company books.

4. You arrive home to find your front
door open. You go in? Call someone?
Write about it, how?

5. You gained knowledge of a friend
by accident. It makes you nervous,
uncomfortable around the person.
In you opinion, what writing ideas
could you curve.

6. A recipe has been passed down
in your family for generations. You
shared the recipe with a few at your
last family-get-together.

You went to the kitchen to pull it out,
weeks later. You looked in every
corner, between shelves, but the
recipe was gone. Your opinion?

7. In you opinion, life is what you
make it. Someone in your circle of
friends disagree.

Write your thoughts about it down.
What spin can you put on it?

8. A red ball, one day, appeared
in your house. The ball wasn't
there when you went to bed.
In your opinion, where did it
come from?

9. Someone knocked on your
front door. You answered, but
no one was there. Your
imagination? Jot down your
opinion in fiction, no longer than
2,000 words.

10. A stranger followed you around
the market. Dial 911? Call someone

An essay on stalkers? A whodunit?

11. You heard a voice of a child outside
your window. You looked out of curiosity,
found no one. The thread for a thriller?

12. An animal kept walking in the living
room. Only, you didn't own one. Opinion?

13. Summer, this year, bought out nosy
neighbors, but one was missing. Idea?

14. Someone called your name. Woke
you out of a sound sleep. No one was there.

15. The clock worked backwards. Opinion?

16. Your favorite cup fell off the table. What

17. You heard crying. You paced to the
room, empty. Hmm.

18. You dreamed of a far away place.
Only, in your bedroom, evidence of that
place was found. How?

19. On the rode driving, a car passed you.
It looked like the first car you had, years
ago. Impossible?

20. You kept seeing the same numbers.
Why? How will you write about it?

The above writing ideas will help your
creative flow. Make the writing idea
yours. Turn it inside out, upside down,
to see what comes to mind.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
