How was your first week of March Madness?
Kudos to those who have braved the storm (literally and figuratively) to achieve their goals in Week One. And if you’re reading this and have not yet signed up, what are you waiting for? SET YOUR GOALS AND JOIN THE FUN!
Heads-up for some of the visual accoutrements. Nothing too graphic, anatomically speaking, but it certainly gets the intended sentiment across to the audience. 🙂
What kind of writer are you? What’s your style (du jour)?
We’ve got plotters.
We’ve got pantsers, *ahem*.
We’ve even got chickens with their heads cut off–or something.
Do whatever works for you, but also don’t be afraid–like Jack or Gollum–to try something new. It makes the writing journey more fun.
In the coming week, try something different with your writing or creative goals.
If writing fiction, try a writing technique you’d normally shy away from such as changing tenses or POVs. That’s not to say you’ll make it a permanent change but you’d be surprised at what insight you can gain from a scene you might not have otherwise noticed. This works especially well if you write the same scene from a different character’s POV.
For non-fiction, try writing a piece that is outside your wheelhouse or even your comfort zone. Stretch your investigative skills and see where it takes you.
If writing poetry, try free verse, a haiku, or even a sonnet. Poetry slam, anybody?
If you type, try longhand, or vice-versa.
If you’re in the midst of creative projects such as scrapbooking to full-on home renovations, experiment with medium and color.
You’re only limited by your imagination, and I know for a fact that this stellar group is known for amazingness.
Whatever you do in the coming week, remember to enjoy yourself. Live your passion. March Madness is more than its name, and should always be thought of in a positive light.
“Creativity is intelligence having fun.”

The guy was a genius. I think we should hear him out on this one.
The fun and Madness continues tomorrow at the always delightful Carol Garvin’s blog.
Until then, isn’t there something you should be doing right now?
