Ideas and Photos

Ideas are All Around us, in the very air we
breathe! God is the source of all Creativity.
Look to Him and He will place the fires
of story within.


Below:
A Pair of Finches built a nest in the middle

of a hanging flower basket on our patio the
same day we hung it. That inspired a story

that I used in a blog, then later sold. It will
likely
be sent winging to another periodical
one of
these days as well.

The egg-filled Finch nest snuggled among the green and purple of the flower basket on our patio.
Look at this photo and let your imagination soar.
What kind of story would you tell a child?
How would you feel if you saw the tiny
birds hatching that instant? Are you curious
why one egg is brown and larger than the rest?
Now . . .  write!

PAY ATTENTION!  I HAVE AN UMBRELLA
AND  I KNOW HOW TO USE IT!

the use of Clustering to generate ideas.




JoAnn explains clustering. Start by drawing a circle on the page. In it write one word. In circles which spoke off the center circle, add related words.

NEXT VEE VILL DRAW ZEE SNOWMAN.
