Overcoming writer's block. Your fingers are on the keys or your pen's in your hand but the usual out-pouring of words is stuck in a void of nothingness. What can you do to stir up creativity? Two things immediately spring to mind. Play some music, your favorite music and let your emotions surface. With emotions comes feelings and feelings lead to dreaming. Dreaming is creativity, rush back to that keyboard!
The second suggestion is to go out. Find yourself a Starbucks or a quiet little cafe. Order a hot drink and with notepad in hand, start writing down some things you have to get done. With your peripheral vision switched on, observe or "people watch" those around you, even evesdrop if you like. Then describe back to yourself what you see, using all your senses "The woman placed her hand gently on his wrist, the tip of her fingers softly tracing the dark hair exposed beneath the cuff of his sleeve..." Write it down. It's not that you're meant to use it but the act of writing descriptively and being somewhere other than your desk or laptop will inject new life into your creativity. Try it! Let me know if it works for you.

"A Cat called Squeaks" by Sara Lauritzen, is a childrens story book to warm the heart. The story of a warm and loving cat, who was no longer wanted. Dumped in the woods, scared and hungry, she loses her meow. The day she is bitten by a fox is fortunately the same day she gets rescued. So tired and wounded is she, that instead of managing a grateful meow, she lets out a pitiful squeak!
The sequel to "A Cat called Squeaks" is the story of a fun loving English bulldog, Winston Raymond, who lives next door to Squeaks and is desperate to play with her. One day he gets that chance, but not all goes according to plan.
Delightfully fresh, this upbeat collection of rhyming poems, offers an almost comic take on some of the world's most iconic brands we love to love.
Modern-day poet, Sara Lauritzen, has captured the spirit and essence of life's current trends in her charmingly casual style.
