Detail-Less Writing

I don't feel that there's can't write or writer's block. My blog, http://critiqueandwrite.blogspot.com, lists many avenues to escape can't write and writer's block.

Detail-Less Writing is one more tool to stop can't write and/or writer's block.

First, you must push stress out of the door. Wash your hands of stress. Stress frustrates. It keeps you motionless and your goals are ignored. Of course, your goal is writing, or to finish/start your writing project.

Calm down. Take a deep breath, let it out slowly.

Detail-Less Writing is selecting one word from a writing idea or writing project.

Write any related words or information about the word. Write a poem, even, to encourage your creative flow.

Keep Detail-Less Writing until you're able to work on your writing idea or writing project.

Pinch the first letter of any word to spring-board into writing about your topic. This is an additional facet to Detail-Less Writing.

At this point, you should be more relaxed. Creative flow is inspired. If yes, good. No? Work with other letters of your topic.

Most likely, writing ideas for more topics will emerge.

The writing exercise is worth the time. Design it to fit you, your writing needs.

Let me know how the Detail-Less Writing tool helped you.

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.
