Behind The Scenes

 

Recently I got two emails asking about my writing process, but wishing to stay anonymous.

Now I have done a little series on that and you can find them all here, but I thought as it is a new year and my daily writing routine has changed a bit, I thought why not do another post (or a series) on the subject.

The post got a bit too long so I cut it at the second question, lol and I will post it next time πŸ™‚

Questions: “How do you start thinking of ideas for your writing or your blog…?”

Answer:

Well, this will sound a bit cheesy, lol, but if we are talking about a book idea, I mostly get them in some sort of a dream or a sudden thought, I write down the dream and see the idea of a story being planned out in my head.

Sometimes I am thinking about books I liked and what I liked about them and suddenly plots start to form and as I write them down, more and more details will rise up.

Now about blog posts, it’s a bit different as I don’t get the ideas from dreams, lol, although it would be cool. I get my ideas from thoughts about things I would like to read more about on the internet or I read a post of someone else or an article and it made a little spark inside my head and that spark of an idea will be turned into a post.

Note: No matter if you are writing a blog post or writing a book, just take a piece of paper and a pen (I know it’s old-fashioned but they work) and write down whatever comes to your mind.

If it’s a blog post just write down what do you want this post to be about? Writing, beauty, food?

Then write what do you what to say about the subject you chose. Maybe tips that you know helped you, maybe a how to post. There are so many things that may come to your head, just write them all down. Soon enough you will have tons of ideas and many posts in your draft or drafts of stories on your computer (like me, lol).

Hope this was helpful in any way, to you and to others who read my blog πŸ™‚

How do you start to write a post or a story? Do you have any hacks to helps you start?

Thank you so much for reading ❀

  1. Brill post Galit πŸ™‚ When it comes to creating blog posts I usually tend to have an idea spring into my mind or take inspiration from some of my favourite mags/blogs/YouTubers… it’s then quickly scrawled down in a little Notepad I keep in my handbag and I go from there. I find writing down a list of key words of things I want to include is much more helpful than writing a page of paragraphs πŸ˜€
    Writing books (for me) is a whole different game – I take ages planning and laying it all out, but again by freehand in bigger notebooks as opposed to computerised, that way I can take my project with me if I’m out on picnics etc and know I’ll have a quiet moment to think things through!

    1. Thank you so much hun for sharing your process πŸ™‚ I love that you have a little notebook in your handbag. I have one as well πŸ™‚ I love writing in it random words of ideas and key words that I use as # lol. That way I know what the post will be about, lol.

  2. When it comes to blog posts, I think about what I would want to read if I were reading my blog. Then, I make a rough outline, or if I am planning a series of posts, I list out each one and what should be included in each.

    As for writing books, I am big about outlining. I start with an inspiration board on Pinterest and some quick research on details. Then, I make my outline for the entire book and begin writing in chronological order until it’s done. It’s a pretty rigid way to work, but it’s how I like to do it!

    1. Thank you so much Kate for sharing your way of starting your writing.

      I am a big fan of outlining as well and even though i give the characters and the story to take me to new places, I still stay alert to my outline in all times πŸ™‚
