This image is the closest to what I picture when I am writing in Skies Over A Shanty Town. I am finding this thread challenging because I have a lot of ideas that I want to explore and at the moment they seem to be coming out jumbled. It can be difficult to get down exactly what you envision in your head onto paper. I am working through mind maps and story boards which are helping to organise my thoughts. I will try to blog through this – how to organise your writing, what is working for me and what could work for you :)

      2. But if you find ways to work through it, take a break. Don’t pressure yourself into writing, it will come when it’s ready :)

      1. I mean you work like a pro, you think in the message you want to share, and how to convey it,you have a lot of passion for this.

  4. Allow your thoughts to run free on the page. When the writing ceases, then, organize your thoughts. Write, write, and write some more. Every last word has a meaning, you just have to make sense of them.

      1. I was recently told, “a writer voice need to be searched for, before it is heard”. You will be heard, if you find a voice that you are confident about sharing. Trust the process….
