“V is for Verbal” – How to use Creativity to Relate your Stories to your Theme

atozpostcards_vfrontIsn’t it funny how you can talk to your friends, text, IM, pass notes, and generally blab for days non-stop but then when you sit in front of a computer screen to write, you get brain freeze? Relax! Writing is just talking, um, written down. So have fun with your words and let the creativity flow during a class brainstorming session. Or have small group competitions for story ideas, headlines, and extended coverage that relate to your book’s theme. So, if the book is “Here’s Looking at You” try:

  • Seeing is believing
  • See what we mean?
  • Worth a second glance
  • A view from the top
  • Looking good
  • Now see this
  • A sight to remember
  • Visions of victory
  • Stare down
