I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have too many ideas floating around, and then I end up with writer’s block. So how does one get those creative juices flowing again? Well, after I watched a news clip I tried freewriting and came up with a wacky story which is listed below. You might want to try these 7 brainstorming tips to get you started.
- Set a goal of 200 to 500 words
- Write anything that pops into your brain
- Don’t evaluate what you write
- Don’t judge your ideas
- Don’t organize
- Don’t go back and rewrite
- Don’t stop and check your spelling
As you read, try to guess who’s telling the story.
My stomach hurts
No one likes me
Everyone avoids me
I make people scream
I’m stepped on
I’m not allowed anywhere
Let alone a hotel room or a hospital
All I want is to crawl inside a mattress
I want to be left alone
What am I doing?
I won’t stand for this brutal treatment one second longer
You just wait
I’ll find you
You can’t hide
I’ll jump in your suitcase
I’ll jump in your car
I’ll jump on you
Don’t let the bed bugs bite
Now sit down and write and then let me know what you came up with.
