Greetings, Everyone! Megan and Angel here. How are you? Angel is moving from California to Illinois. She will be closer to me. I live in Indiana. Hopefully, we will get to see each other! As for me, I am hoping for summer and I have a few items published in Grand Reflections magazine. This magazine is just getting started.
This month we will be talking about beating writer's block and weddings. We hope you will enjoy this issue.
Here are ten ways to beat writer's block. I will be David Letterman. Okay, here goes. I hope you will find these helpful.
1. Go shopping. After you have looked at clothes, trinkets and treasures, go to the Book Store. You are bound to find a book on shopping for fun items. You can write a story about a woman who loves to power shop. Maybe she will meet a man who is a clothes horse and they take over the Fashion World.
2. Buy a dog or pet of some kind. Get a book on how to raise that pet. Observe your pet and it's habits. You can write a story on how to raise that pet or give the pet a fictional story of his own. Animals are fascinating and you can surely find a story here!
3. Spend a day at the Beach. Enjoy the warm sun and sand over your feet. You will want the day to linger on. As you're at the Beach, you may think of mermaids, ocean life, ships and everything to do with the ocean. You can write a story about what lies under the ocean. Put your imagination to work and go with it. A story of the ocean. How cool is that? Don't forget the pirates! Now, there's a story.
4. Go visit a Nursing Home. The kindness you show to these people will make their day. You may want to write an article about the elderly and think of ways to entertain them. You can submit it to a newspaper and make the community aware of what the elderly need and ways to brighten their day.
5.Get your hair done at the Beauty Shop. This is a place of gossip. You can write fictional stories of these people you hear gossip about. You may have a best seller on your hands.
6. Go for a quiet drive in the woods or mountains. Your imagination can make you feel like someone who lives in an area like this all the time. You can write a story about someone who loves nature or maybe you can write a romance about a woman who gets lost in this area and is rescued by a handsome man. Good romance story here.
7. If you have the money and time, take a trip to England, Scotland or Wales. The beauty of the land will put you in the mood to write Regency or Medieval Romance. Maybe you will want to write a book about things to do in these countries.
8. You are having a bad day. Your children are being a pain and so is your husband or wife. Write a story about a disfunctional family or a comedy about your family. You will be surprised how cheery this can be and others will enjoy it, too.
9. Don't like anything you have written lately? Read other author's stories. Draw your own conclusions and get your own ideas and run with them. Your mind is full of imagination and knowledge. Don't be afraid to use it.
10. We all collect something. Want to know what's missing from your Teddy Bear, Doll, Coin or what ever you collect? Look up info on the internet. Write an article about the item you collect and add why you enjoy collecting this certain item. Submit it to a newspaper. They may find your writing on this subject interesting.
We hope this will help you with your writer's block. I had originally wrote this as a way to get out of a reading rut but it will work for writing, too.
Thanks for the great tips!
Okay. Let's talk about weddings. June is the month for weddings. Don't you just love the Dr. Pepper commercial about the bossy bride telling her bridesmaids how they will do their nails, dye their shoes to match their dresses and so on? As she walks away, she steps on her dress and tears the back of the train off? I get a kick out of that.
I will tell you about my wedding. I had a beautiful wedding. I wore a long white satin dress with long puffy sleeves , a long train and the dress had butterflies and pearls on it. The veil was long and Juilet style with seed pearls. I got married 21 years ago and styles have changed. The dresses now are strapless and some still have straps. I just love the big bows on some of these. If I had to do over, I would have worn a dress with just the straps and a smaller train and a tiara with a veil. Like everything else in life, fashions change like new car models, DVDS instead of VCR tapes and etc.
My groom wore a blue tux and so did the men in his wedding party. I had four bridesmaids. My bridesmaids wore long formal dresses of rainbow colors. My Maid of Honor's dress was blue. The other bridesmaids wore dresses of lavender, pink and apricot. I carried a bouquet of red roses and pink carnations. My bridesmaids carried bouquets of rainbow colors. We had an eternity candle that my husband and I lit. We had 8 by 10 pictures of our wedding and they were beautiful. Our cake had six layers spread out with the bridesmaids and groomsmen standing on the stairs, a fountain on the very top and a carriage and horses on the bottom layer. We had a band that played Rock music. The band were people we had known in high school.
The Wedding magazine I used had Brooke Shields dressed in a wedding dress and I had hoped I looked as pretty as she did when I was in my wedding gown. I wore a heart necklace and an unicorn necklace for good luck. I'm not sure what else to say about weddings except being in love is the reason anyone should get married. I am still in love after all these years. I had thought of taking a Bridal Consultant Course but changed my mind. This is all I have to say about weddings except that they are a special event and plan it wisely and have a beautful one.
We don't know what the topic for next month will be but if you have any ideas, please let us know. E-mail me or Angel. Have a great month and Father's Day! Love: Megan and Angel
All the beautiful sigs done by Angel. Thanks! I love you! Megan
