Tips from Author Donna Jodhan: How News Items Can Help - Author Donna Jodhan

You would be amazed to learn how you can use news items to help kick start a sluggish imagination on any given day. Most authors often run into what we call writer's block and sometimes it is a bit difficult to pull out of it.

Not to worry though: this condition often does not last for too long and I have found that by listening to the news there is often some item or bulletin that would jump out at me and if I take the time to listen a bit more closely I could find either some sentence, group of words, or some theme from said item to help me germinate the beginnings of a story that I can later develop into a full blown mystery.

Ideas often flow into our minds from the least expected corners of our daily lives and listening to news items is no different. Give this a try and see how you do.

Happy listening to those breaking news items.
