Give Me Five Monday (on Saturday!)

Five Techniques I Use to Aid in Writing:

  1. Prompts provided by various online groups, such as this one, give a nice starting point for writing.
  2. I enjoy writing about things that happen in daily life.
  3. If all else fails, share a recipe!
  4. I use a poetic form such as haiku, tanka, sonnet, or sestina to provide a framework for writing.
  5. I write about a photo or series of photos such as I try to do for Photostory Friday.

The hostess of Give Me Five Monday is Becca of BeccA’s Buzz. She says:

The ‘Give Me Five’ Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here’s how it works. Each week, I will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn’t have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.

P.S. – Sorry to be posting to the prompt so late, Becca. I’m doing the ‘better late than never’ thing, since I didn’t want to miss out on this one. Thanks for all the good writing ideas you posted at your blog.

    You’re right … better late than never always. I do most of the things you do except share recipes. I need to get myself back in the groove of checking the OSI prompts again. It’s been a long time since I’ve participated. I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend.
    Hugs and blessings,

    Good suggestions. One I’d add: If blocked, trick yourself into being creative by writing in an email as if writing to a friend, instead of in Word, etc. There’s less pressure.
