Sure, it's fun and easy to write what you know. A writer grows when he/she manages to reach higher by researching and/or investigating a topic/subject.

Let's look at 12 writing tips to get and keep you writing.

Find a place that's comfortable, your writing place. Your writing tools should be sitting and waiting, because they inspire.

Although, there'll be times when you, the writer, can't be in your writing place. Still, writers write. Curve-out a spot where your creativity can run-free.

Writing ideas that keep flashing in your mind could be promising writing ideas for songs/poems, fiction or non-fiction.

Life and living offers excellent writing material.

Family gatherings are stuffed full of tips and material for writing.

Quotes are sources for writing tips. Like: The jealous are troublesome but a torment to themselves William Penn

Use simple words.

Use strong verbs, and avoid adjectives as much as possible.

Titles dance their way into the reader's mind. They allow a quick look into your work. Titles summarize in a stimulating and interesting way.

Play a game to writing when creativity stalls.

The first word, that jumps to mind starts the game. The word shirt begins my game.

The word shirt can spin into songs/poems, fiction or non- fiction.

A possible non-fiction article: What's the best material for a summer shirt?

One fiction idea revolves around the disappearing shirt. It was last seen in the closet.

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.
