Say Hi!

Kick-start Your Writing Juicea


Listen, consider this scenario.
You have a deadline to honour. Time is pressing, tighter and tighter.  You are hoping to come up with some topic for your project..... 

However, ideas on what to write about keep eluding you.

What are you going to do in situations like these?

Today there are various software and information to start you off when finding yourself in such a rut.  They all can come handy, but one sure technique to provide quick results is Keyword Brainstorming.

Let's see what this is all about and how it works in practice.

Find a quiet place and set a time limit
Take a sheet of paper and write the subject keyword at the top
Now, any idea that this word brings to your mind, jot it down
Don't be judgmental, and keep focusing on the start keyword
Just write key words - enough to trigger your thoughts in future
Keep going as fast as you can
Jot down in a list form, without analysing for spelling, validity, etc
Derive as many ideas on paper while keeping the fast pace

Here is an example of how a KEYWORD brainstorming page would be:
HAPPINESS

laughter
water
food
solitude
simple
sleep
relaxation
nature
family
meditation
friends
calm
prayer
heart
tranquility
sunshine
children
smile
jokes
quiet
holidays
health
therapeutic
alternative

This can be taken further by building another keyword from this very list to start a fresh list and getting you deeper into the subject.

You can even challenge yourself to stick to only a predetermined number of responses you are able to come up with.

As you see every word in the list can provide you with a particular angle in relation to the main keyword which in turn can lead you to a totally unique approach to your writing project.

There are times, as everything else in life, when writing is a bit of a chore, but having the right tools at hand it can be turned into an enjoyable experience and even fun to do.
You can kick start your juices with the right tools!
