Update..

“I sat on the edge of the river of souls watching them all swirl around in the fluorescent water. Their silent screams of pain echoing as the realization set in, that they were only at the beginning of forever in Hell.. The thought of that echoed in the back of my mind, “Forever in Hell”.

-Lucy Morningstar, “Devils Fall”

Using GIMP and Amazons Book Templates to create your Paperback cover..

This Sunday I will be uploading a PDF for authors to download a step by step guide on how to use GIMP and Amazons Cover Templates to easily create your paperback cover..

I will be using a 5×8 paperback as an example but will add some more details about uploading your paperback to Amazon..

Let’s Play a Game..

I haven’t had Writer’s Block in quite some time, I usually have characters, plots and notes on every little detail of how a book is going to happen and I always start at the End..

Lately, I have been in a slump and have not wrote anything in about 2 weeks. This is something I NEED, I need to write or I feel like I am going crazy.. 

I figured out a little game to play to get your brain rebooted and thought I would share!

Grab a pen and paper or your laptop, something to write or type on.. 

Start blasting a list of names.. It doesn’t matter if these names have meaning yet just write them, maybe change their spellings even..

Once you have your list of names and your brain has run empty, start from the first name and think of who this person would be.. Then the second, third, etc.. If you get to a name and can’t think of ANYTHING that gives this name a life, cross it off.

Once you get to the end of your list, you now have a small (or large) character roster to choose your main character out of..

Take their stories and their names, now do the same with “Titles” except these are what genre, then write a plot based on the genre you chose and use the names from your roster. 

Once you have all of these you have all the essentials to write atleast a short story to kick start your brain! 

The whole issue with writers block is our brain cannot think of “words” which unfortunately in this case is our lives.. but once you force it  to “create” like you’re the BOSS, you will get back at it!

Have Fun!
