Be a little fancy.
“Everybody wants to be someone fancy. Even if they’re just shy.”
—Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz
If you’re looking for a writing topic, consider something fancy. Fancy, I am sure, conjures different ideas for all of us.
If you already know your topic and you’re looking for a way to write it, be fancy. Try fancy words. Try fancy paragraph breaks. Try a fancy genre.
If you’re having trouble getting in the writing mood, break out something fancy. Maybe you have a fancy hat, a fancy ring, a fancy tea cup, or fancy cheese. All of these things have the potential to make you feel writerly.
