Flickering Writing Ideas


Flickering writing ideas are worth the time to explore. It's the glimmer of an idea that shines briefly and runs away. Think of it as a possible writing idea. It's time to get comfortable for writing. Only, what the idea was about has disappeared from your mind. You think..., no. Maybe, it was...? No. You can't recall what the writing idea and your vision for it was. The key to catching a flickering writing idea is as follows.

1. Jot it down.
2. Text it to yourself.
3. Record it, or make some kind of reminder.

There is a game of sorts to recall information. I'm going to use the words chirping birds. Make a note of the words for later. I want to write a poem, perhaps, using those words. Use the two words too. My poem included the words chirping birds. Use the words how your creative flow will.

1. Massage in effort.
2. It may take time to arrive as in your vision.
3. What did you come up with?

My poem follows.

Chilling night melted into dawn
men ravaged by the street life,
boys not yet at full term
stood as chirping birds.

The words birds chirping words can be stirred in any direction, subject or form of writing. An entire subject is exposed with the two words. You have the option of selecting a specific breed, habits of birds or the area of your choice.

1. Be guided by your interests.
2. A trending story about birds.
3. Why do some birds fly?

Flickering writing ideas will emerge as you write. Take the time to scribble down the writing ideas that inspire your creative flow. Don't allow a flickering writing idea to vanish, especially when it grabbed your attention. An idea should be examined from every angle. Get as much writing material as possible from it. 

1. Slip a flickering idea into what you're working on.
2. Write down an idea for a novel or a how-to project.
3. Keep ideas for future use, avoiding writer's block.

Capture a writing idea as it flickers in your mind. It shines for a short time and disappears. Write down the idea before it leaves. Be sure to have enough of the writing idea down to understand your original thoughts.

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.
