Just For Today – Check out the Street Art

imageJust for  Today…check out the street art. A treasure trove of inspiration lies therein! Let the colours and images tell you their story or perhaps you can tell them yours!

Just for Today – Beyond the Door

image Doors hold great fascination for me – what stories lie beyond, what stories lie within?

take a walk and look at some doors – let your creativity loose and then reign in those stories.

Just for Today – Writing Building Blocks

imagesometimes, our writing pieces need to be built over time.

expecting to get a piece finished in one go is not always possible.

so, keep your drafts and ideas in a physical form or hard copy and dont be shy about going back to them for inspiration or inclusion in other writing projects you may be undertaking.

just for today – use those pieces as your writing building blocks!

Just for Today – seek out the light!

imageArtists talk about “light” and so should we writers. An abundance or absence of light can affect how we write our pieces – our descriptions reflect our encounters with sunny days, dismal afternoons or moonless evenings, for example. Think about “light” next time you write and let it be part of your creative process.

Just for Today – it’s okay to run away from your writing

sometimes, writers can become so consumed by their writing, that they become unproductive.

and sometimes, what we are writing just isnt working and we feel too involved to simply walk away for a while, or for good.

sometimes, it’s okay to run away from your writing – for your health’s sake.
