Start Writing
Stop Writer's Block

Friday, July 27, 2012


Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. Writers, like any one else, will be visited by life's turmoil. It can come in the form of illness, lost of a job, relationship break-up or death in the family. Life's turmoil may try to upset your creative flow by serving you with writer's block. Simply, write. Write anything, everything. Ideas eventually form to allow creative flow expression. Write about a problem. What's stopping you from writing? New writing ideas happen when you ask questions. My grand-children started a make-shift memorial for their fallen police officer father, for example. It happened down the street from where I reside. People, someone, stole the stuffed animals. One was left. Who does that? Combat life's turmoil. How? Write. Update: On September1, 2012, I walked pass the make-shift memorial. Someone had moved it a few feet form the original site. There to four of the stuffed animals re-appeared. My question: Where are the rest of the stuffed animals?

How To Use Writing Prompts

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. A writing prompt is a word, quote or several words that inspire you to write. Writing prompts are placed in areas to remind, inspire, you to write. It excites your creative flow. Look at the words write everyday. Tape the words to your mirror, door, computer or anywhere your eyes frequent. The words are meant for inspiration, gentle nudge to write. The question is: What words will inspire you to write, and tack them everywhere. The goal is to write. Time is needed to write. Slice-away time for writing, pencil it into your schedule. A minimum of two hours is required. Pick any time during the day or night. Writing everyday can inspire you to find a headline, funny word someone spoke or a quote. Here are some other possible prompts. 1. Get-up two hours earlier 2. Success is my goal 3. Write now 4. To write or not 5. Write a sentence in 7 words

About Me

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.
