Tips from Author Jodhan

For November 2014:

Finding a theme

One should never be afraid of the writer's block; it happens when you least expect it but I have found that one of the quickest and easiest ways to get out of this is for you to try and find a theme that you can concentrate on and then focus all of your attention on it.

Finding a theme may not be as difficult as you may think. You could certainly help yourself in this area by starting small and then building from there. Maybe just looking at a tree, a flower, a bird in flight, or even up at the sky could be the spark you need to find a theme.

I enlighten the finding of a theme to this: You roll out your canvas in front of you, gather your paint brushes, and then you stand still and quiet and look straight ahead at your canvas. Presto! You would be amazed to see how quickly your imagination would take over and the rest as they say will be history.

You could find a theme practically anywhere! In a busy mall or coffee shop, at the park or beach, on a moving train or bus, on a plane, or even sitting quietly at home.

So just go out there and find your theme!
