Feeling fed up or tired? Can’t be bothered to do anything? Jump up right now and shake your whole body for two minutes. Put a smile on your face and just shake. Feel your cheeks wobble, let your arms and legs jig. I guarantee at the end of it you’ll feel refreshed and raring to go. Happy shaking!

Yo, yo, yo. Freddie’s in the house. Ready to get those creative juices flowing?
Everyone’s watching the football and you hate football and they know it. You’re bored. You’ve got an idea. You giggle. They won’t like it but ….
What happens next? Over to you, guys. Happy Tuesday! Freddie. xx

Today, draw a picture. It doesn’t matter if you think you’re rubbish at drawing just sketch something. You have two minutes and if you’re left-handed use your right hand and vice versa. This will get the genius within you interested.
Now set an alarm for five minutes and write a story about your picture. What is it supposed to be? What does it look like? What does it represent? How does it affect a character within your story?
Happy Thursday! Liane x

Hey, it’s Teal. How are you? Oh my gosh, it’s so much fun to be down on Earth. The smell of grass, watching frogs hop …
Where’s ‘great’ for you? The park? Disneyland? Planet Joya? Imagine for the day you’re there. When you see your normal surroundings just say to yourself, I’m really on Joya. See the red paths, the purple fields. Or you’re in Disneyland. Hear the screams and laughter of the people on the ride and Mickey waving at you. I guarantee you’ll be in a happier state and have more energy all day.
Happy Wednesday! love Teal xxx

When you’ve found the genre you want to write in, make sure you read all you can in that genre. You’ll get great ideas to help you grow. You’ll see what does work and what doesn’t. You’ll see what’s been done to death and what is fresh and new.
And then read in different genres. This will open your mind to see how some of these characters, storylines or themes can cross over into your genre.
This goes for non-fiction too. What’s already out there in your field? What elements of bestselling books in other unrelated fields could be used to great effect in your book? Exciting, isn’t it?
Happy writing! Liane x
