Start Writing
Stop Writer's Block

Tuesday, October 30, 2012


Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. Sighs of relief happens when a writing project is completed. Yet, the writing project requires more. The last step is to critique. It's necessary to distance oneself from the writing project. You need the mental break from it. Try a new activity. Perhaps, start a new writing project. Develop a character for a work of fiction. Decide whether or not to write in a new genre, or write an essay. The longer a writing project is, the longer "needed time" away. You'll come-back to the writing project refreshed, and with better writing ideas. Let's critique. Read it. Is your writing attention grabbing? Paragraphs must sway smoothly from one to the next. The images should inspire a reader to understand, sadden or ignite a response. Sometimes, a reaction is negative. Strong verbs plays an important part of writing. They stir readers into the subject. Pay attention to transitions. Are they flowing from one idea to the next? Every word word contributes to the writing project, or is removed. Read the writing project out-loud. Is it the best you have to offer? If yes, move on. If no, start the critiquing process over.

About Me

My photo

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.
