Rhyme Game

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. There may come-a-day, in your writing life, when you're blocked, can't write. You can sit and stare into space, or play the rhyme game. Take a look. The rhyme game requires two sentences with last word rhymes. One to four, whose at the door? Write fiction or non-fiction with the last word of sentence two. Door rolls-out into a haunted house. The creepy looking door is always drawing attention. Write a scene based on the stares and go from there. Non-fiction: Take a look at where the door originated. The second rhyme is- Heavy books with big hooks. Hook spins into an article on how fishing hooks are made. Perhaps, a story on a character finding two vintage books. There's no limit on how the two sentences are worked. Select sentences from any area of life. Refuse writer's block, write.

Legitimate Rape

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. Legitimate rape rarely ends in the victims' pregnancy, but Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin apologized. Akin has two daughters. He didn't have them or any female in mind when his lips formed the above words. This is a clear example of one must think before speaking. Akin's words have upset many people, include members of the Republican party. Some want Akin gone. Still, Akin isn't the first or last person to make an error. He's human. As with all errors, there's a cost. Akin has no intentions of stepping down according to news accounts. The lesson for us all: Think before speaking.

Reached The Gold: Gabby Douglas

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. Gabby Douglas, in the London 2012 Olympics, reached the goal. She's 16, but at age 14 moved away from her family to train next to Shawn Johnson in Iowa. This is an example of chasing down your dream. It's no doubt that such a move took courage, determination. No one is perfect. There are places on the body, head, that can be improved on any one's person. In my opinion, a person is so much more than one part of his/her body. Gabby Douglas is inspiration for people of all ages.

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.
