WritingStorytelling Word Cloud on chalkboard is a muscle and just as a runner must train for a marathon, writers must keep their writing muscle strong. To write well, there are a couple of basic principles every writer must know. 

The first and most important thing in developing strong writing muscles is to write. Write about anything, everything, or nothing at all. The more often you put your thoughts into words, the better writer you will become. Most of the workout exercises found in our Mental Musings Fitness Center (MMFC) are designed to help writers develop the art of listening to the story's voice rather than trying to mentally force the shape of a story.

In addition to using MMFC we recommend our members read regularly. It is not only helpful to read different genres or periodicals but you will gain invaluable subliminal information on style, voice, point-of-view and so much more when reading well-written books, magazines, and online periodicals.  

The Mental Musings Fitness Center has exercises and musings to help every writer keep their ideas fresh, their writing muscle "ripped," and their "blocked" door open! MMFC is available for all members, beginning at the Social Membership Level.
