writers block

Have you ever tried to brainstorm and found yourself with a symptom not too far removed from the fabled writers block?

Sometimes we just need a little kickstart and I have just the thing – the “A to Z” method.

It’s pretty simple really and just builds upon word association almost, where you find a connected word which just happens to begin with the letter you are thinking of.  Start at A and work your way through to Z until you have a list of stuff that you can run back through again to kick off more ideas.

Can’t think of an associated word?  No problem just think of any word, the crazier the better.  You never know what can be sparked off by the most bizarre things.
