Back in the Groove #amwriting #veryexcited

My last post, which was some time ago was all about when ideas hit. Well I can tell you my latest one hit me in a steaming hot shower…

2015-06-16 06.55.44

Maybe the hot water unfroze my brain. Anyway I have started a second book in my Not So Boring Series

FntCover

This one is a bit different, in that it’s not about writing. It’s still an activity boo and I am really excited to finally have lift off. It feels like a while since I got the writing buzz. Glad it has come back!

Anyone else had a break through lately? Have fun!

When do Ideas Hit? #getwriting #ideas

I love it when ideas hit me, it’s a great part of being a writer. I just wish they could pick better times.

2015-08-21 01.31.54

Ideas have hit me
1. While I am sleeping – okay so not really asleep, but definitely during my sleep zone when I can’t get to paper and find a pen.
2. During meetings – always a terrible time
3. In the shower – that’s okay if you can get the idea down soon
4. In the car – should have a voice recorder while driving
5. When at the gym – probably gives me a spaced out look
6. While writing something else – usually reports argh!

2015-11-18 08.27.58

Okay so lets look at when ideas don’t come to me:
1. When I sit down to write – that would be too easy

Ha but who would want it to be easy?

When do your ideas hit?

Have fun!
