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 🙂
Questions: “How do you start thinking of ideas for your writing or your blog…?”
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 starts 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 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 in your computer (like me, lol).
Hope this was helpful in any way, to you and to others who read my blog 🙂
How do you start to write a post or a story? Do you have any hacks to helps you start?
*** If you wish to see more about this type of series or Q+A, I would be happy if you let me know.
