In a bid to achieve my novel I have been thinking of ways in which I can stimulate a stream of words from my sometimes stifled brain. Here is what I have so far
- Pick a word that will be a theme for your writing session. Find 7 synonyms for the word. Write a few sentances or even a paragraph and use each word in a different yet related context.
- Concentrate on details such as
- sounds and noise
- colours and textures
- smells and tastes
- experiences - eg smoke going up her nose as she inhales another drag of her nicotine filled death stick or the gentle breeze brushing through and shifting papers about on the table. An envelope slowly flutters to the ground
Ok so now that I have rewritten it, it does not seem as much as when I scribbled it down earlier, but at least it is a start I guess!
Those are some great ideas! How's the novel coming anyway? What did you finally decide for a theme?ReplyDelete
The novel is coming slowly but my confidence is still high. I am not really sure how to explain what I have come up with but you can read it here http://lourhi.livejournal.com/ReplyDelete
