Wednesdays will be regular weekly writing prompts again soon, but as I haven’t had chance yet to search any dates, here’s a connected post I made earlier…
Ideas are all around, but how do you capture them?
In the next week few weeks, I’ll be kickstarting my weekly writing prompts. Before then, and by popular demand, I’m going to start with where to find these ideas in the first place.
Ideas are all around
Yes, this is a bit of a cliché, but it really is true. Once you train your brain to start recognising ideas, you’ll be seeing ideas everywhere as well. Often, this is a blessing, but sometimes it’s a bit of a curse. When that happens, when I have far too many ideas than I can physically deal with, I start to give them away.
For example, as I look out of my home office window right now, while I’m writing this, I can see my next-door neighbours are having a new driveway. My other next-door neighbour has already approached the workmen to enquire about having her drive done too.
I don’t know yet what kind of driveway is being laid and I don’t know what kind of driveway my other neighbour has asked for, but I wouldn’t mind if our driveway was done as well — while they’re here anyway.
