Think out of the box to enhance conventional phrases
As a writer who is constantly in pursuit of artistic grounds to enrich their writing, you are sometimes wind up in the consistent whirlwind of monotony and it does your creativity more harm than good because the lack of innovation and novelty in your writing becomes a setback. The same old routine, the same old words and the same old phrases – is it not rendering your mind dull as the cycle is continuously iterating itself without the inclusion of certain new features which might bring about a change in your scripts?
See, the real deal here is how you handle your thoughts; you need to think before thinking ‘out of the box’ and I promise you, monotony in writing is dangerous and your audience, the readers, will eventually get bored of the unceasing similarities in your distinct pieces. However, the situation could take a turn for the good if you employ certain strategies to combat your incessant desire to brew content with the same ingredients every time.
One of the best ways you can strengthen your creativity is by consciously thinking about how you can describe common things in new, interesting ways which could intrigue your audience to the point where they wait for your content with an impatience and spirit anew. You want to make your readers to see that common item or situation or visual in a brand new light.
An easier way to do this is to pause when you’re describing something in your writing and think to yourself, “how else can I explain this to create a stronger emotional impact?” because no matter how fabricated or genuine our content might be, there is an underlying sentiment – either positive or negative – which affects the readers. You need to have that impact, you need to communicate with your audience and interact as much as you can with your phrases.
Here’s an example of this writing tip if you’re still a little confused:
“The sun set behind the trees and the world fell quiet.”
Is this a bad way to describe a sunset and night beginning? No. However, you can easily get more creative about how to illustrate this to readers through words.
“Night yanked the horizon over the sun, silencing the world with its absence.”
This is saying relatively the same thing, but in a way that stops and makes someone appreciate the way in which it was crafted and bingo! That is exactly what we want.
