Keep That Creativity Going!

Hi All,

By now you should have found a journal book, written down a few quotes and taken notice of the things around you.

Today, I want to help move you forward in your adventure in writing by scanning a real estate website or a real estate magazine that you find at your local supermarket.  The goal is to find houses that get your attention or features of houses and buildings that you like.

When you find a few that you like, take a look at how the houses are described.  This will help you when you want to describe a house and help you learn the style of house you like. Is it a Ranch, a Cape Cod, Victorian, Modern, etc.

Keep track of the pictures you find. Place them in your journal or in a special folder that you are keeping your writing in. 

If you are feeling adventurous, try this:

Take one of your quotes and connect it to something you observed around you and then to the house you recently found.

Don't worry it you can't connect the items together smoothly.  Just do the best at writing a couple of paragraphs or how many you feel comfortable in writing.

Good luck!  Here is Gary Moore - Whiskey in the Jar.
