Writing for the Health of It

Writing ideas to get you started




Writer’s block, no time, stressed, out of ideas? We have all been there many times no matter what style or genre we are writing about.


Best tip I have been given: just write. Don’t think, don’t edit, don’t censor yourself just write. Free writing for 10 minutes or more can allow your creative ideas to flow, whether you use the writing for something doesn’t matter, just write and see where it takes you.
