Tips To Help Spur Writing Ideas
Zielle S.
8/3/2016


1. Take a walk.
Sometimes taking a walk could spur an idea. Perhaps by looking at your surroundings, listening to things around you, imagining a walk in a small forest is a quest to finding a treasure. Or maybe you're pretending you are lost. Or maybe there is a log stretching across a puddle, and you can pretend you are in a dangerous situation.

2. Look at some artwork.
Pictures can hold many stories.

3. Read.
Inspiration! Style! Ideas! They all come from reading.

4. Freewrite.
Time yourself for 5-10 minutes to write whatever comes to mind. Don't worry about grammar or punctuation. When the time is up, read your writing. Maybe there is something in there that you'd like to make into a story. Something in there that caught your attention. Or maybe you'd like to re-write it. Don't throw it away! You may be able to use it for future use.

5. Read your other stories. Maybe you'd like to edit them, or finish them.

6. Stop writing for a while. I'm not saying to quit, I'm just saying to give yourself a break and relax. An idea will eventually pop into your mind! :)
