My thoughts on writing tips found online and in published works (with some random thoughts thrown into the mix).

Trying Something Different

While this is a rather crude example, it accurately portrays the experiment I want to propose today. If you are having trouble coming up with new ideas, try putting a secret message in your writing.

You could write a want ad, like the one above, that uses every other line to send a message. You could write a letter that includes a code with a secret message. Find a way to make your writing serve two different purposes at one time.

If you decide to try this activity, please send your attempts, I would love to read them!
