There is nothing like getting lost in an intriguing storyline or falling in love with a well developed character to get your creative mojo back. If that doesn't work, I use writing prompts to write about random topics that I would not normally consider. These excercises often result in interesting concepts or ideas that I can explore and build on later. (less)

Even if you have no idea what genre is right for you, just show up for yourself at the screen, or notebook and get the thoughts out of your head. Make an appointment on your calendar for a consistent time each day to write as a gift to yourself, and honor it as sacred "you" time. Select a time of day that you will be least distracted and most creative. You will be amazed at what you are capable. Once you have completed a work (paragraph, short story, poem, or novel), give it room to settle by distancing yourself for a few days, week or month. The time and space away from your work of art will improve your objectivity during the editing phase of wrting. Transform your dream to reality by putting in the work. The real challenges begin after you've published and become an author, so be ready and energized for the next step!

The Vanishing Half was such a delightful and intriguing story. It artfully showcased the strength and grace of three generations. It is at once a coming of age journey and a show of resilience.
