THE WRITER’S BLOCK MAIDEN NAME GAME by Lois W. Stern
Posted by loiswstern
If you are experiencing a few moments of “writer’s block”, try this MAIDEN NAME GAME brain teaser to get you up and running.
Use the 1st letter of your Maiden name to answer each of following questions. Use only with real places, names, etc. – nothing made up. For example, my maiden name starts with “W” and you can see how I answered each question, below.
1. Maiden name – W. . . .
2. An animal – Water buffalo
3. A boy’s name – William
4. A girl’s name – Wendy
5. An occupation – Window washer
6. Color – White
7. Something to wear – Wind breaker
8. A beverage – Water
9. A food – Watermelon
10. Something found in the bathroom – Washcloth
11. A place – Wellington
12. A reason to be late – Watch broken
13. Something you shout – “Whoa there!”
No, please DON’T send your answers back to me or to 10 other people (who once were your friends!!) Just play the game to brush aside those mental cobwebs and have a little fun.

What’s Your Passion?
About loiswsternI was in education for just over 20 years when I unexpectedly pursued another passion and entered the world of authors and journalists. I have since published two non-fiction, full length books on different aspects of beauty, but also avidly endorse the confluence of Inner and Outer beauty. I have written feature articles for Long Island Beauty Guide and LI Woman, and have served as Editor-at-large for MakeMeHeal.com, the largest Internet site for plastic surgery and beauty needs. I enjoy researching what's new in the world of aesthetics & anti-aging and devote one of my blogs: www.FabulousBeautyBlog.wordpress.com to sharing cutting edge, hype-free information. I devote my second blog to my other passion: writing, collecting and sharing stories to warm the spirit and inspire the soul. To this end, I have created an 'Authors Helping Authors' project/contest, to create books for inspiration, the first of which is titled: Tales 2 Inspire ~ Beyond Coincidence. It is a jewel of a book, filled with inspiring stories and full color original photos and/or drawings. If you're a talented writer with one inspiring story to share, visit www.tales2inspire.com to learn how to participate. FREE to enter. All you need is the talent and perseverance to do so. Lots of positive platform building opportunities for the winners. Learn more at: www.tales2inspire.com.
