Blank Mind

A blank mind stomps-out creativity, and will find any thread of anxiety you have about writing. The anxiety then balloons, you feel worse and creativity falls asleep. You may not have been aware of it. The situation balloons more as the fact that a dead-line looms. What can you do to spark writing ideas?

- - Take a deep breath.
- - Don't force creativity.
- - Type any word.

The act of writing will stimulate your creativity. In other words, "be writing". You can, even, pick a word from a project-in-progress. Or, select a word from the project lurking in the crevice of your mind. The word may be one you identify with or not.

- - Write the next word playing around your mind. 
- - Try the word, writing project.
- - Make note of writing ideas as they occur.

Are you having trouble deciding on a word? Work with more than one word. The goal is to ignite writing ideas. The act of jotting down a word(s) is called free writing. Its job is to stir-awake your creativity. Free writing stuffs a blank mind with writing ideas. The following are words to consider. 

- - Summer day.
- - Going green.
- - Tumbling up.

Perhaps, you prefer meaningful words. Use the words you connect more with. It's possible an essay about a college moment or Summer session holds interest for you. An article on beach attire is promising. One last idea is on a specific day... How will you end the sentence?

- - Thunder boomed before it happened.
- - The front door flew open
- - it was dubbed "Summer Crime."

Many businesses, still, can use tips on "going green." Research offers the helpful information needed to write articles. 

- - Start small. 
- - Announce the change in meetings.
- - Involve employees each step of the way.

Finally, there's no excuse for writers to have a blank mind. Use this post to curtail it before your creativity is zapped.

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.
