Ideas are EVERYWHERE!!

Writers’ Block is a real thing – or is it? Did you ever realize that there are writing ideas everywhere you look? I can be sitting in my living room and looking at the pictures or the knick-knacks on my shelves and ‘hear’ the stories they tell. Now, I do not have to write their stories precisely as they tell them to me – and I do not have to use the character they portray – for instance, I do not have to tell the story from my grandmother’s point of view, but the story needs to be said – in some fashion.

And then, lets’ discuss the plethora of writing prompts you can find anywhere, and everywhere you look. I do not think there is a writing site anywhere that doesn’t present their own 1000 or 5000 writing prompts, or at the very least a daily blog with a prompt for the day.

Where am I going with this, you say?

Is there any reason you shouldn’t be able to write at least 500 words a day? Heck, even getting 750 down shouldn’t be too much trouble.

I do KNOW there are the days when we are so down that the thought of getting out one sentence seems impossible – we all have them. But give yourself one – and then move on. Otherwise, your writing will move on without you.

So, it is still early in 2022 – dedicate yourself to writing every single day!!

Until Next Time,

I am finally a full-time author, who writes legal thrillers, how-to- books, short stories, flash fiction, a tiny bit of poetry, and Blog posts. My published works include 'Guilty until Proven Innocent,' 'Innocent for the Moment,' and 'Moment by Moment.' This is a trilogy called the Jill Adair Series. Additionally, I've written a collection of short stories about my dogs, Howie and Bernie - with a 2nd Collection coming in late 2021. I'm also coordinating an Anthology of Short Stories called, '2021 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology.' This book will be available on on August 1st of 2021. (The 2020 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology is currently available on - the collection includes 30 stories, written by 18 different Authors from three continents.) I am married to my wonderful hubby of over 37 years, and I have two grown children, named Heather and Gregory. I've been blessed with two beautiful grandbabies, Heather Rose and Logan Ernest.
