Writing Creatively

Jun 11, 2008
The most common problem faced by the people while writing an article is the lack of ideas. Most of the people just run out of the ideas while they begin to write. Is coming up with unmarked ideas such a difficult task?

Don't let your frustration get the best of you. If you take a look at your past experiences, skill sets, successes and failures, and expertise in a certain area, you will find an ocean of fresh ideas around you. The reality is that what is ordinary to you may be original and inspiring to someone else. Your every experience is bound to serve you with many new ideas and words.

In order to generate ideas from you own life, follow these useful tips:

Select a Subject: Analyze and choose a general subject from your daily routine. This subject may vary from cooking a meal to driving a car. This will help you to improve your writing ideas, as the topic of the article will come directly from your everyday life.

Create a List: Compile a list of various useful items that are the part of your subject. For instance, if you are planning to write on your first driving experience, you may include the various aspects like your excitement, nervousness, the vehicle, road, traffic, signals, road signs and so on.

Focus on the Crucial Aspect: Bring your focus to the most crucial item of the list you created. Write a detailed description of that particular item. Your attention to detail should be precise but informative at the same time. Include both physical descriptions and emotional expressions that strike your mind. For example, if you wanted to concentrate on the road signs, you may include the significance of each sign and the place where it is found as well as any feelings you experienced at that moment.

Make and Arrange Categories: You can make categories for your different descriptive reports. For instance, you can put together the description of the vehicle in one section and the description of the traffic in other part.

Arrange the Categories: If the length of the article is short, then you can focus on any one particular category.

However, if the article is supposed to be long, then you should make the different categories appear in a systematic way in your article. For making the article long, you can decide on writing about the precautions you need to take on the road while driving the car. You may write about the traffic rules to be followed on the road and also about the safety measures to avoid any kind of accident.

The art of stuffing your article with fresh new ideas will be tamed with practice and it will probably not be achieved overnight. With practice and by following the above guidelines, you will see that fresh words are taking birth in your mind. This will affect your writing speed in a positive way. Finally, the day will come when you won't have to search endlessly for ideas. They will emerge quite naturally.
