Writer’s Block? Here is a Great Method to Generate Story Ideas

If you’re not a subscriber to Abbie Emmons’ channel, why not?? She is young, but she has a lot of great writing ideas and advice. I like how she approaches writing from a more practical standpoint and a lot of what she says makes sense to me.

When I saw her latest video about generating story ideas, it was like a light bulb went off in my brain and suddenly, I had so many ideas!

Anyway, I think it’s definitely worth a watch and with July’s Camp NaNoWriMo happening in less than a month, I thought it might help any writers out there struggling for ideas. (Like me).

So for me – my three story ideas are:

  1. Serendipity
  2. Alias
  3. Verity

Let me stew on these a bit and break down why they resonate with me and I’ll follow this post up with my ideas, like Abbie does in her examples, in another post.

I really like Abbie’s ideas and I feel inspired every time I watch her videos. Her ideas make me excited about writing fiction again.

In the meantime, what three story ideas would you like to mash together?


Be Less Stupid

I just don’t understand people’s NEED to be judgmental. Yes. Be kind, be courteous, be a good human being but don’t apologize for who you are. Own it. And to hell with the people who get offended.

You’re entitled to your feelings about something – I’m entitled to not care.


Defining Conservatism – Part Deux

I honestly don’t think a lot of people even know what conservatism is. What the values are. Why I’m 110% behind it. I explained it over here but I thought I would post this lovely lady and her definition here because she NAILS it.

Also, she’s beautiful and I LOVE HER HAIR.

Also, this may have restored a bit of hope I have for our young people today.


Happy New Year!

Thanks for visiting my inch of cyber space. I have big plans for this blog this year and lots to come. I hope you decide to stick around and live it with me.

I know, once again, 2020 holidays suck but don’t let that get you down. This too shall pass and before long, we’ll be looking back on this time period and shaking out heads thinking, “Wow. We REALLY overreacted didn’t we?”

Be safe, be responsible and chin up – it’s a brand new year!
