Yo, Freddie’s in the house. How’s it going, guys? Ready to get those creative juices flowing?
The sun is shining. You take a blanket into your garden and spread it over the grass. You lie on your back and soak up the rays. You fall asleep.
You wake up and lift your head. Your arms and legs won’t move.
What’s happened? Over to you. Happy Tuesday! Freddie xx

Using the senses in a story brings it alive. In THE CHRONICLES OF JOYA we taste and smell Hobo’s hot chocolate, we see the red paths snaking through the purple fields, hear the roar of Darcy’s motorbike.
Write a story about a vampire, a paper clip or a mouse. Your character makes a discovery through only two senses – smell and taste. Allow the reader to feel he is using his senses as he reads it. Why can’t the character use sight? Is he blind, ill, blindfolded, in a dark room or a forest?
Have fun. Happy Thursday! Liane x

When was the last time you did something for your soul? When was the last time you laughed out loud? Wrote a poem? Made music? Skipped down the street? Painted a picture? Walked in nature?
Which of these things, or something else, would give you a smile on the inside? Do one and have fun. Go on, feed your soul. I’m off to watch a bit of Star Trek and do a little sketching :)
Happy Wednesday! Liane x

Yo, Freddie’s in the house, guys. How you doin’? Ready to get those creative juices flowing?
You walk in and you’re ravenous. You open the fridge and a mountain of sand pours out onto you and the floor. And then …
Over to you, guys. Freddie xx

Just for today think about what you did on a great day that made the day great. How did you feel? What sensations did you feel in your body? Close your eyes and remember. Apply one or two of those feelings or actions to today and watch your day fly!
Happy Wednesday! Liane x

If you like writing horror, dabble in another genre too. Have a go at comedy or whatever takes your interest. You may find that what works for you is writing in more than one genre or mixing two genres in one story. Or you may find that playing with a scene like this enables you to uncover more threads to a story or more depths to your writing. Exciting!
How about writing a funny horror story? What about a romantic thriller? How about historical fantasy? If you force yourself to think out of the box, you’ll allow your hidden ideas and talent to spring forth.
Happy Thursday! Liane x

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
