Tomorrow, it’s game time.  We’ll be wrangling kids, grandparents, parents, and maybe even step parents.  And with this having been a particularly stressful year there will be some interesting table conversation.  Ooooh all that things we are thankful for.  I may even write a blog about the fabulous things my family members say.  I’ve decided that Thanksgiving bingo might be in order.

Well, this was my friendsgiving table and I want to give you resources for yours.

Ok first things first, find a color scheme.  My mother always told me that any good event has at least three colors.  My basic three were eggplant, pink, and creme.  Then I added accents of sage and gold.

I found these disposable plates at Smarty Had A Party .  They were affordable and looked so amazing!  Then I designed a little plate filler.  Here are some downloadable pdfs…yay… friendsgiving and thanksgiving.   The tablecloth came from Tablecloths Factory.

5. Create a writing schedule: dedicate the same span of time per day to writing and creativity. This gets you brain all primed a ready to perform. Give it at least a week to kick in. 

4.  Just 10: set a timer for 10 minutes where you write, edit, or brainstorm with little distraction. 

3. Change your environment: head to a park, coffe shop, maybe even a museum to trigger some motivation.  

2.  Research:  when you take time to read related articles and books it can help you understand your own point of view. Sometimes you can find glaringly missing  perspectives in the literature and you can find your angle in the white spaces. 

1.  Stick with it: when stuck in writer’s block people tend to want to quit, but the more you work the article the more ideas you can get. So, take a breath, get some coffee and get back in there.
