The Labyrinth of Life

Saturday, November 19, 2005

Perhaps if I start writing in this format I will become inspired to start my novel. Here is the premise of said masterpiece: two brothers go off to World War I to protect their motherland (and their mother and sisters). They are both tragically killed in a battle on the same day. After the war, one of their fellow soldiers goes to the brothers home to give his most sincere condolences to their mother where he meets one of the sisters, falls in love and marries her. So we have war, tragedy, romance, history....all the makings of a great book, right?

Of course, I will need to do a lot of character development, plot construction, etc. I don't have a clue where to start. I feel like I need do something creative before I die even though I don't have a creative bone in my body. How does one open up the creative part of their brain? I think we all have potential for creativity, or do we??

    You are creative! Just from the fact that you are thinking about the story. I think you should do so some research about that period of time so your setting will be historically accurate. Also, if you just start writing every day...it doesn't even have to be about your topic. Just get in the habit of writing. I think everything gets easier the more you do it. And stop saying you aren't creative or you will become that. Listen to me, I know what's best for everyone.

    I am happy to enourage, inspire and love you. What kind of person would I be if I didn't unselfishly share my gifts?
