Peel Ideas Into Writing Projects

Writing ideas stand-tall in dreams, walk around the market and live on the Internet. It takes a writer's creative flow to peel ideas into writing projects.

A dream that repeats itself, night after night, can unfold into fiction. Some dreams appear vividly and refuse to be forgotten.

Slice-away a segment, part, of the dream to write about. You don't want to write fiction? Write an essay about a portion of the dream. Your creative flow may prefer to write non-fiction on your dream. Use the dream in as many angles as possible. This is how the process of peeling ideas into writing projects begins.

The more you write about it, the better you'll understand your dream. After all, writing is therapeutic and good for you.

Stay on the look-out for writing ideas, no matter where you are. I can't emphasize that enough.

At the market, this happened to me, a stranger was on his cell phone. I didn't pay it any special attention.

"She's here with pink flip-flops on," he said.

Needless to say, I quickly moved away from him.

There are many writing ideas within that incident that comes to mind.

Fiction based on a stalker holds promise. An essay probing the loud tone people use on a cell phone. One last short story idea is that the man didn't have anyone on his cell phone. He wanted to speak to a female, but fear had him in it's grip.

The Internet, too, is a place to peel ideas into writing projects. Every link, Web site, offers material. Writers must decide which idea to use, how.

Let's look at an example.

Critique And Write Fiction

There's one more step to the writing process before sharing with the world. Few, if any, can skip it. Read the entire post at:

Do you get any ideas from Critique And Write Fiction? If yes, share them.

The last words are that it's time to write.

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.
