Start the Writing Flames

"For the most part, creative writing, regardless of genre, is an art of words and ideas and that is the starting point for most authors: the generating image, vision, word play, or whatever gets the brain gears greased."  - Jessica Day

Examine your idea sparking process. What ignites your creative fire?

Do you notice an image that triggers an idea?

Will you doodle and play with words and sounds?

Does an overheard word or conversation strike the match?

During exercise or a walk, do the brain gears shift and shake?

Will a mood or frustration set off ideas?

Do questions start a search for kindling?

Creative Write:  Look at the above drawing. Do the details spark a fire?
