Write from Life

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion.

Game To Writing

 It's productive to spring-board from one writing project to the next. Only, life stands-by with a hammer to interrupt routines, that leave you blinking at a blank screen and nudge creativity to take a vacation. 

You, writers, must work with life by making a game of it. Besides, there are far too many serious moments.

 Look at what interrupted your routine. Make a game of it for writing.

 In my neighborhood, there's a constant rumble of vehicles moving up and down the street I live on.

 My game about the truck rumbling is to turn it into non-fiction. Perhaps, why trucks make a specific sound? Truck design determine how heavy a load it carries? 

 There's no limit on what to write about. It depends on you, the writer. 

"What to write?" You said. "Blink screen." 

 Spin it into a game. You have five options to flip a blank computer screen into a writing project. 

 On slips of paper, jot down five possible writing sources or places to get writing ideas. The sources (for this article) are writing prompts, something that made you laugh, your last thought, weather, or a sad moment. 

 Fold the papers in half and throw them into a container. Shake. Pick one. Spring-board to writing with the idea that stirs-up your creativity.

 A writing prompt, believe, for instance. Believe. 

 Look at it. Write it. Stop. Start working on a writing project. 

 Now, creativity is on vacation. 

 Re-fresh creativity by writing down any word. The word(s) could be from the previous paragraphs. Look at objects in your room. Write about words playing, exciting, your creativity. 

 The words are used in fiction or non-fiction. 

 Finally, a game of writing from life keeps you churning out writing projects.

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.
