DURING A CHANGE IN OUTLOOK

Have you ever had that change of outlook that results in a boost of energy that propels you into wanting to tell someone or everyone about it? Use this change of outlook and the boost of energy that comes from it to tell a great story.  You want to pounce on the emotion and reality of this newfound outlook to bring the passion and elevate the reader right there with you so the impact of what you want to relay is done in the proper way.

Therefore, begin drafting up a summary, outline, etc. of whatever story you absolutely need to tell, and then tell it well.  It is a time like this where you want to use that change of outlook to drive your writing.

DURING A CHANGE OF ENVIRONMENT

You’ve moved is some way, shape, form, or fashion.  However you look at it, a movement has taken place.  It could be to a different job, city, better or worse relationship…you name it…there was a big physical change and you have had to adapt.

During this change of environment may come just the right amount of adaptation that you need to focus on writing.  Having to adapt to something whether favorably or not is one of the motivational factors that could move your writing project where it needs to be.  Adaptation is a time of TRAINING, so naturally, writing fits into this equation perfectly.

IN TIMES OF SADNESS

It may sound counterproductive, however, beginning a writing project during times of sadness or despair is not only a good idea, but it is great therapy.  You don’t have to write about what is going on in your life, however, you can write about something that allows you to transform that sadness into something worthwhile instead of allowing it to swallow and digest you into nothingness.

DURING A TIME OF RAGE

Bad energy is can be made a divine place for creativity.  Trust me because I know.  The key word in the phrase bad energy is ENERGY.

I learned to take all bad energy I have on any given day and convert it into something good and worthwhile pertaining to whatever I love doing for myself and others, including writing and entertaining readers with my work.   I have found some of my absolute best writing comes in times where I have no other option but to control my anger or frustration and place it all into a story.

DURING A TIME OF SURVIVAL

You’ve been through it all.  You’ve been burdened with plenty and even thought you would die, but you made it through.  You’re a survivor and proud of it.  Write about it, or let it be the force that drives you to write a fictional story that has never been written before.

Art imitates life, and every single person needs to know that they aren’t alone while gaining inspiration. Therefore, if you want to shout it to the world that you made it, put it in a story.  It’s a perfect time.
