Writing Ideas Stab At The Imagination: What To Do?

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

There is one action to take when
writing ideas stab at the imagination,
and that is to write about them.

Decide on the best angle to write
the article, poem, essay, or chapter
from. Use the point-of-view that
excites your imagination, and will
appeal to the biggest audience.

It's very important to work with
a writing idea that you like.

If a writing idea for an article
puts you asleep after paragraph
two, how can you write with passion
about it? It must ignite your
imagination, sense of wonder.

An interesting writing idea
starts you to look for the
right angle to present it
from. You probe, look, for
other information relating to
your writing idea.

What to consider as you
work on the next writing

Settle on a view-point by asking

What angle will give my article
the most appeal? Perhaps, it
should be begin with a question.
An amusing anecdote is better?

Try different questions before
picking one.

I wrote a poem centering around
a rainy day.

Still, I had to ask questions.

What is there to say about
the rain? It drowns out the sun?
Washes away germs? A time to
play in puddles? You prefer to
write about where rain comes

I plucked information from the
above questions to write a haiku

Rain taps at window
cleaning the earth of its germs
balancing nature

Your choice is to write an essay.
Still, ask yourself questions.

How will the introduction be
presented? Your research
will give questions, and

What is your position, and
what evidence do you have?

What words will best
show-case a chapter?

An excellent place to begin
a chapter is in the middle of
a problem, situation. Will the
idea stabbing at your imagination

Stir-up the idea stabbing at
your imagination with research,
notes, experts, and begin

There's no limit to the paths
the writing idea stabbing at
your imagination can take,
but the boundaries you set.

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.
