Hi! I’m so glad you could join me today as I share with you a strategy to Unleash the Writer in You!
I understand the little voice that sits down with you when you want to write.
The voice may say:
“Who do you think you are?”
“How does your story matter?”
“Where is the connection between your story and the world?”
Here’s a strategy for all you reluctant writers out there in answer to those questions that stop you from writing.
My tip to WRITE FAST is to choose one word and then make a map or cluster of all the ideas related to that word.
It could be anything from a to z. Apples, for instance, you would put the word apple in the middle of the page. Then, start writing whatever words you associate with apples. Such as: varieties of apples, cooking with apples, climbing apple trees, Johnny Appleseed, recipes for apple pie, memories of Grandma peeling apples for pie. You get the picture. The idea is not a list but a cloud of images leading back to one word or phrase.
I just love how there are so many combinations of words we can use to express the meaning of what we want to get across. Our ultimate goal is to connect with our readers. We know we’ve succeeded when the essence of the message is seen with the eyes and impacts the soul!
