Tips For Creative Writing

Updated on July 8, 2010

I am participating in the Hubchallenge for writing 30 articles in 30 days. It is extremely exhausting! I have a job and I used to steel some sporadic times to manage for writing online, and this way gives me the opportunity to come with new content.

This time I am not writing the same way I used to. I feel the stress because I neither like nor accept to write garbage things, so I navigated away from my habitual way of searching the internet. I have found some tipsĀ  that may help hubbers - specially the challengers- to feel more comfortable and creative when they write.

How to Generate New Ideas

Writing is all about a stream of new ideas to write about passionately and enthusiastically. Getting new ideas to write about requires a fresh and stress-free mind, and here are some tips that can help you keep your mind in the exact situation to generate new ideas:

1- Relax your mind and refresh it:
The easiest way to keep the stress away during your daily life routine is to take a nap, your subconscious will solve many problems you face while alert (Isn't this a stress relief?)

2- Try a new way of communication to get new notions:
Watch some TV programs that are new to you, get involved in small discussions with people who are not intimately close to you, or even strangers, in the mall, party, or games

3- Meet new people you had never spent time with:
If you are a young family man listen to an old or a single person, if you are accountant spend some time with an artist

4- Focus your thinking outside the box:
While in the shower, watching people in the park, watching some serious movies...etc, try to burrow a new mental picture of observing what others do

5- Let your thoughts go anywhere in your mind:
Follow any ideas coming to your mind freely and without any restrictions at your side, so that you'll be open to new ideas (Brainstorming? may be). Don't worry about the time spent in the process, the yield may be a big idea that may change your life and affords you a bigger time

6- Create a new atmosphere for your mind:
Changing pace, place, or prompting a new activity may expand creativity and bring you new ideas you had never thought of before

6- Be alert to any thing that comes across your mind:
Write down any new thing you watch or think about, you may find it well perceived in your mind bringing you a whole new idea. Don't dismiss anything

7- Stir thoughts in your mind:
Get away from your accustomed places, visit the next town, visit the country, or go to places you had never been to before

8- Learn from other educated or experienced people:
Get new ideas from other people in educational settings like classes, workshops or conferences

      Great tips! I find that going for a drive (especially if the location is somewhere lovely) also helps my brain regenerate creatively.

      I recommend heavy drinking. It's worked for some of the greatest of all time. There must be something to it.

      You have some great ideas, here. Sometimes, we writers so badly need to refresh our minds and change our habits and surroundings. I often forget to do those things but I think they help a lot.
