I believe one must find their writer's voice before they can start to be a writer or author. Once you have found that writer's voice you change it from romance, hisorical romance, to fiction to non-fiction and other serious subjects to write about. My writer's voice varies from one subject to another because I am a paralegal and family rights advocate and I help people. Listen to your writer's voice and let it guide you.

These are EXCELLENT ideas to get the creative juices flowing. Reading each of those titles made me think of others in the same vein. One topic springboards to another branch on the same tree of thought.

Great job, CW!!!!!!!!!

Constant Walker from Springfield, Oregon on October 10, 2008:

Wow! That percussion teacher was WAY off, eh? The true meaning has nothing to do with music. Odd.

Well, there you go...

ProCW (author) from South Carolina on October 10, 2008:

Hey Constant Walker... um... I don't wanna say you're wrong... :) You may have your own Mozart Effect... :)

See these links for more info on "The Mozart Effect" ... and when and if you use them in answer the request, they all have at least a google PR of 5. :)





Good Luck! :)


Constant Walker from Springfield, Oregon on October 10, 2008:

I'm gonna take a stab here, without doing research - honest!, on what the "Mozart Effect" is.  A percussion teacher at my jr, high school told me I had the Mozart Effect, and I looked at him blankly.  "You know how to play drums without being taught," he said.  This lead me to take more interest in Mozart.  So, I'm going to say (I'm really going to look stupid if I'm wrong, eh?) the Mozart Effect is a natural musical ability.

fishskinfreak2008 from Fremont CA on October 09, 2008:

Very interesting, although I have very little knowledge about these topics. Good luck
